Not in BC (I think the rest of Canada has a similar act)the Apology act allows one to apologize without admitting guilt.
1 In this Act:
"apology" means an expression of sympathy or regret, a statement that one is sorry or any other words or actions indicating contrition or commiseration, whether or not the words or actions admit or imply an admission of fault in connection with the matter to which the words or actions relate;
"court" includes a tribunal, an arbitrator and any other person who is acting in a judicial or quasi-judicial capacity.
Effect of apology on liability
2 (1) An apology made by or on behalf of a person in connection with any matter
(a) does not constitute an express or implied admission of fault or liability by the person in connection with that matter,
(b) does not constitute an acknowledgement of liability in relation to that matter for the purposes of section 24 of the Limitation Act,
(c) does not, despite any wording to the contrary in any contract of insurance and despite any other enactment, void, impair or otherwise affect any insurance coverage that is available, or that would, but for the apology, be available, to the person in connection with that matter, and
(d) must not be taken into account in any determination of fault or liability in connection with that matter.
(2) Despite any other enactment, evidence of an apology made by or on behalf of a person in connection with any matter is not admissible in any court as evidence of the fault or liability of the person in connection with that matter"

"If the third-party used a touch sensor which was not recognized then the phone was not repaired to its original state. End of story"
The replaced touch sensor is perfectly fine , however because it's not an Apple approved sensor the firmware won't work with it installed.
Re: Best Buy
After reading this I will never shop at Best Buy:
31 August 2017 (Water at $43 a case)
Shame on "Best Buy" stores for price gouging on bottled water in and around Houston.
Generally you shouldn't buy bottled water in the US. When a contaminated flood has made tap water inaccessible is one of the exceptions.
" Portugal's decriminalization of using illegal drugs, together with plenty of treatment and other support for users that need it, has almost eliminated the main secondary problems that drug use causes in other countries.
Don't assume that all use of illegal drugs is a problem. There are plenty of people that sometimes use marijuana and it isn't a problem at all. Marijuana should be legal, not merely decriminalized."
I agree with this solution to the drug problem, alcohol prohibition didn't work and when it was ended crime went down. The same thing will happen with drugs. Maybe not outright legalizing at least decriminalizing.
I think marijuana should be legalized.
"Raphael Sanchez betrayed that solemn responsibility and abused his official position to prey upon aliens for his own personal gain," said Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan in a statement, adding that we should not let one bad actor mar the work of ICE – which generally involves rounding up undocumented aliens and booting them from the US.
ICE is already doing a great job of that. Including young girls after surgery, defendants after a trial and DACA recipients showing up at their immigration meetings.
"PCs in an OT [operational technology] network run sensitive HMI [human-machine interface] and SCADA [supervisory control and data acquisition] applications that cannot get the latest Windows, antivirus and other important updates and will always be vulnerable to malware attacks."
Then access should be limited to intranet only.
edited to add "to"
"This included the name, email address and location, along with IMSI and IMEI numbers, IP address, phone spec and OS details, and links to user's social media profiles and photos. It also slurped 373 million names and phone numbers from the contacts of over six million users."
“There is no sensitive data there, we are not collecting\storing \sending any password or credit card information,”
if the data mentioned in the first quote isn't sensitive, I don't know what is.
Re: The film "Idiocracy"
From the IMDB trivia page
"Upon its initial release, writers Mike Judge and Etan Cohen insisted that they did not intend for the film to be a satire of modern life. However, the writers changed their tune over a decade later. Due to a particularly contentious and unpopular presidential campaign season in 2016 and social developments in the United States, Judge and Cohen admitted on social media that they fear that portions of their film are coming to fruition."
