Here's something known to be the bane of many a new car owner: The minute a car leaves the dealer's lot, it loses value-up to 9 percent of the purchase price, according to Richard Lavey, CMO at The Hanover Insurance Group. What's more, it loses 19 percent of its value in just the first year, says Lavey.

Does your auto insurance policy protect you against this instantaneous depreciation?

In fact, I could argue the Echo, which likely had a bunch of ex-Apple folks working on it, is closer to something Steve Jobs would have supported than the Apple Watch. But what is coming after the Echo and all its siblings? It could be the rumored next generation Apple Watch or something very different.
