Description

Clash of the Titans! Not only is it an objectively great 80's movie, it is also what you could call the current climate between Apple and Epic. Platforms are a tricky business. You need developers making software for your platform to make money, but you also need the developers to be happy with the platform and make money. So, what happens when one side messes with the other side's money? You get litigation! A lot of legal punches have been thrown between these technology giants and this week on The Debug Log we are going to attempt to give you a blow by blow and our analysis of the situation.Articles mentioned in the show: https://www.theverge.com/2020/8/13/21366438/apple-fortnite-ios-app-store-violations-epic-payments https://www.macrumors.com/2020/08/24/apple-epic-court-battle-august-28-removal/ https://www.macrumors.com/2020/08/28/apple-terminates-epic-games-developer-account/amp/ https://www.theverge.com/2020/8/6/21357771/apple-cloud-gaming-microsoft-xcloud-google-stadia-ios-app-store-guidelines-violations https://www.theverge.com/2020/8/5/21356274/microsoft-xcloud-ios-apple-iphone-ipad-testing-ends-apple-app-store-policies Thanks for tuning in this week and we hope you enjoy the show!
