Depends. Higher range requires higher transmission power. So, for the one using the BT device, you'll get less interference from other devices. Until they all upgrade to BT5, of course.

And if no one shows up to answer your call, email or letter, or even just the doorbell? You can have a defunct company that has to honor a warranty, but you can't make any individual show up to help you. What are you going to do to the company to force compliance? Fine it? Dissolve it?

A bakery should be able to choose not to provide service for an event of which they disapprove. There is no legal protection for discrimination against same-sex weddings, and anyone, even a business, should be free to not participate in any way.

I happen to agree that discriminating based on the sexual preference of the customer should be illegal. If a homosexual is marrying someone of the opposite gender, the bakery should not be able to refuse service, as that doesn't violate the religious sensibilities of the baker.

A bakery should be able to refuse to support an activity or event of which they do not approve. If a gay man is marrying a woman (perfectly OK with Christians), they should not be able to refuse service just because the customer is gay. That's discrimination that has been deemed illegal. Refusing to cater (provide a cake for) a wedding between two men should be perfectly legal because private persons have a right of (dis)association.

A biological basis is irrelevant. Race is used as a way to group people. Humans love putting things in categories, and other humans are no exception. You can get over your whole "there's no such thing as race" crap, because it's totally irrelevant to the way the term is used.
