    I'm constantly worried about mine. I am scared something will happen to it.

    Does anybody else have the same worries?

    I wrap it in tin foil like my head, nothing can happen to either now. Totally safe. At least if I drop it all the glass will shatter and stay in the tin foil so I super glue it back together like new!

    Sure

    I'm also scared that I might accidentally inhale my toothbrush and choke to death. You still have to live your iPad blessed life though...

    No, buy a proper case and/or insurance.

    My renters policy covers it.

    I bought Worth Ave. Group insurance which covers accidental damage and theft for 2 years. Also have a power support crystal film coming. Can never be too careful! :)

    I woke up without my iPad today, I went drinking with friends and things went a little overboard with the alcohol. Some nice guy found it laying on the floor somewhere on the boardwalk and found my number in the contacts and called me. Said if I'm missing something lol. Told me where he lived so I went and pick up my iPad :eek:

    No. If anything I worry about human beings because they can't be replaced. Your iPad can. Hopefully, when you get older, you will, too.

    You hope he will get replaced when he gets older? :D

    OP. It's fine to be worried about something you payed a fair amount for, but not at the cost of enjoying it.

    I think one of my housemates once ended up taking a MacBook Pro clubbing through a long chain of events. I've never scaled those heights, but my iPad has visited a large number of my favourite pubs, and had croissants eaten off it.

    Ultimately, no I'm not that worried about my iPad because my insurance will cover it, and I'm careful with it.

    You can get a baby-sitter for when you are out of the house and your iPad is home alone. That should help ease your mind.
