If Apple determines, while inspecting your product, that service is needed due to failure of parts that are neither supplied by Apple nor Apple branded, Apple may return the product to you without servicing it, and may charge you the diagnostic fee plus applicable sales tax".

    from now on i'm only going to read a story about apple up to the word 'Cupertino' then i'm stopping. yes, we sometimes refer to a country's govt by the capital city like... 'Washington has decided....' but this is kinda dumb.
