When news broke of an unlikely threat to Apple’s App Store from the North Dakota State Senate of all places, the first thing most of us who follow and cover Apple thought was why: why there and why now? The answer has become quite clear after some digging by the press got to the heart of the matter.
Honestly, I could rant about this all night. I won’t even attempt to hide my disdain for Tim Sweeney and Epic Games. I think he and his company are laughably hypocritical in their comments about openness (when it suits them) and fair play (when it doesn’t apply to their own store). I have no patience for a company that is doing a few of the very things they complain about in regards to Apple, so everything they have said today has fallen on stone deaf ears.
