AT&T mobile insurance vs AT&T mobile protection pack

You may end up paying for features that your device manufacturer already provides

If you are buying a phone from AT&T online, you will likely be prompted to choose one of the following: My question was: what exactly is the difference between “mobile insurance” and “mobile protection pack”.

MS beats apple to the punch with a ARM powered (full) OS

With all the rumors of Apple switching to an ARM based architecture for Mac OSX, it is funny that Microsoft already beat them to it with Windows RT.
