Apple vs Epic Games. Epic games, the producer of popular game Fortnite, is clashing with apple about the way payments on their app are transacted. How does big tech control the marketplaces and channels that it facilitates? What does this mean for sites accepting payments through their systems? PS Google also kicked them off
SPICY Uber and Lyft’s operations in California are saved by last minute ruling. The two companies have been in a legal battle over a California law aimed at gig-workers. The ridesharing giants are trying to call their bluff, and had threatened to pull out of the state, as making the changes would require an overhaul to their business model. What do you think about gig workers getting employment benefits? Is California attacking the gig economy? Are Uber and Lyft pushing a hard bargain?
