Metal object crashes through Seattle home


Recommended Posts

Hum

A three-pound piece of metal crashed into a Seattle area home earlier this week, causing damage to the home's ceiling and roof and leaving many to wonder where on Earth (or, perhaps, outer space) it came from.

Had a chunk of the Millennium Falcon fallen loose? Were the Transformers preparing an invasion of our peaceful planet? Fortunately, no. It appears the mystery has been solved, and it has nothing to do with Shia LaBeouf movies or even a part of a plane coming loose.

According to the Seattle Police Department's blog, the chunk of metal has been identified as a part of a tree-chopping "tub grinder."

How a part of a wood chipper crashed through a roof is, of course, still open to debate. One might assume that a neighbor was chopping trees and the piece simply flew from the grinder.

Nobody was hurt, but the ceiling did suffer significant damage. Here's hoping the homeowners opted in for "tub-grinder damage" supplemental insurance.

      Samsung Care+ members could soon opt for theft and loss insurance coverage
      by Jay Bonggolto



      Samsung may soon bring an option for theft and loss insurance coverage to its Care+ service for an additional cost. Currently, the company's premium after-sales insurance plan only covers accidental damage such as cracked screens and drops.

      This is according to strings of code uncovered in a teardown of the Samsung Shop app’s APK file, thanks to the folks over at XDA Developers. The teardown revealed that Samsung may soon allow Care+ members to add coverage for theft and toss to their insurance subscription in the future. The coverage will be billed on a monthly basis for 36 months or until the customer cancels it.

      Here's what the strings from the Samsung Shop APK say:

      At present, Care+ fees vary by device, with tiers ranging from $3.99 to $11.99 per month. It's not exactly clear, though, how much the total insurance coverage will cost when the theft and loss option is added.

      There's no word as well on when this will be launched. XDA Developers speculates that the additional coverage may be introduced sometime during the holiday season.

      Check out this revolutionary home and renters insurance alternative
      by Steven Parker

      Lemonade is redefining insurance for urban dwellers, taking a flat fee and giving unclaimed funds to charity.

      Check pricing Purchasing home and renters insurance is an annoying but also totally necessary rite of passage when it comes to adulting. The worst parts of working with most insurance companies are getting through the painfully slow bureaucratic processes, and of course, the overarching feeling that somehow they don’t have your best interest in mind.

      Lemonade is an insurance company that breaks the mold and redefines the home and renters insurance model, using technology for total transparency. Here’s how it works: Lemonade’s policies can start as low as $5 per month for renters and $25 per month for homeowners. The company gets paid from the fee you pay, and any money that’s left unclaimed is given to charity. In short, the premiums you pay are treated like your money.

      Check pricing Because Lemonade doesn’t profit from denying or accepting claims (like traditional insurance companies), the overall ethos of the company is more democratic — and you can use the app to handle claims instantly. You can access Lemonade through both the iOS and Android apps, and purchase a policy through the website.

      Learn more about Lemonade by visiting their website — and get started with an immediate price quote based on your needs.

      This tech-driven insurance company eliminates the hassle of traditional claims processing
      by Steven Parker



      Home and renters insurance is one of those things you might not really miss — until something totally unpredictable happens. From an accidental fire to an unforeseen flood, life can throw you some pretty serious curveballs — and the last thing you want to feel is that you were completely blindsided by any incident that could greatly impact you and your home. Lemonade is a technology-driven insurance platform that completely revolutionizes how its users typically deal with claims, so you’ll actually want to get the insurance you need: it eliminates the horribly stressful claims process and annoying customer service calls, and lets you handle claims immediately.



      You can get the full Lemonade experience using either the iOS or Android app. Renters insurance starts at just $5 and homeowners insurance starts at $25 — and Maya, an utterly charming AI bot, will get to work immediately crafting the ideal insurance plans for your needs. And unlike the drag of spending hours or even days to find the right insurance using traditional means, it takes as little as 90 seconds to get insured with Lemonade — and only three minutes to get paid out for your claim. Compare to that to the long, tedious process you’d usually have to endure to get reimbursed in the case of a burglary and that alone makes the switch to Lemonade worth it.

      Lemonade works so quickly because they take a flat fee to run everything, and treat the premium you pay as if its still your money — even better, any unclaimed funds are sent to charities.
