Good morning!

Yesterday, Epic Games started an epic fight by adding a new payment mechanism to bypass Apple's 30% cut. Apple responded by booting Fortnite off its platform, and Epic Games immediately bit back with a ready-made 64-page lawsuit. To round it off, they premiered a short film titled Nineteen Eighty Fortnite, a spoof of Apple's 1984 commercial. Soon after, Fortnite for Android was kicked off the Google Play store, and Epic fired off another lawsuit against Google, using its old "Don't Be Evil" mantra against it.

Meanwhile, Silicon Valley has spent the past few months raking in money selling so-called 'immunity passports', we discover that Trump's campaign traffic is being driven by the far-right and...Spanish sports, and we take a look at why the heck none of the most valuable startups have been founded since way back in 2004. (Hint: It might have something to do with the fact that Big Tech keeps buying them up.)

Have an awesome weekend!
