Geek Tip: Have you ever wondered how you would replace your iTunes collection if your computer were stolen or your hard drive crashed? Well, hopefully you've been making routine backups of your data, but if for some reason you have a disaster, you can always email Apple and plead your case. They will replace your purchased tunes, but here's the catch... they'll only do it once per lifetime. Mighty cool of ya, Apple!
