Android enables multiple app stores and choices for developers to distribute apps. Google Play has a business model and billing policy that allow us to invest in our platform and tools to help developers build successful businesses while keeping users safe,” a Google spokesperson tells The Verge. “We welcome any developer that recognizes the value of Google Play and expect them to participate under the same terms as other developers.There’s an entire debate about the cut that Apple and Google take from developers outside of Epic’s dealings with Google. Consumers could benefit from Apple and Google lowering their cut, but that doesn’t mean the two giants aren’t entitled to a sales percentage from the App Store or Google Play, no matter what that percentage we’d be talking about. Epic’s request to bypass it altogether doesn’t sound reasonable, again, in light of the way it handled the initial Fortnite rollout on Android. In a comment to the same blog, Epic said that it didn’t seek a special exception:
Epic doesn’t seek a special exception for ourselves; rather we expect to see a general change to smartphone industry practices in this regard. We have asked that Google not enforce its publicly stated expectation that products distributed through Google Play use Google’s payment service for in-app purchase. We believe this form of tying of a mandatory payment service with a 30% fee is illegal in the case of a distribution platform with over 50% market share. We note that Google Play’s Developer Distribution Agreement (https://play.google.com/about/developer-distribution-agreement.html) does not require developers use Google payments. It merely references a number of non-contractual documents asking developers to do so. Further, Epic operates a major PC storefront and payment service and we do not force developers using our store to use our payment ecosystem.Fortnite on Android is only available as a sideload installation. And, like before, we’d advise you against installing any apps on your Android device from outside the Play store, Epic’s hugely popular game included.
This is it, ladies and gentlemen, the holy grail of robotic vacuum cleaners. The iRobot Roomba i7+ Robot Vacuum doesn't just clean your hard flooring and low-pile carpets and rugs better than any other robot vacuum out there, it also empties itself when it's done! You can let this puppy do its thing without thinking about it literally for months, because it has a brilliant base that sucks up all the dirt and dust when the i7+ docks to charge. Then, after a few months, you get a notification to empty the base and you can quickly go back to never thinking about it again. It's fantastic, but it's pricey at $1,000 — unless you buy one today while it's back down to Black Friday's all-time low price!
Here are the bullet points from the product page:
The allegation is that the individual, publicly stated with reference to the current vaccination drive "I'll be here to mop up your mess. Enjoy your killing spree." The AG confirmed that "this person who had previously been warned by the Police, has been charged and his bail is opposed for risk of reoffending." He is therefore in custody until the first available court date.Much of the anti-vaccination movement in Samoa is blamed on the deaths of two young children who died shortly after receiving their measles vaccines in early 2018. The government shut down its vaccine program and investigated, eventually reaching the conclusion that a different medication, incorrectly administered, was to blame for their deaths. By the time vaccinations resumed, many in the country were fearful of the treatment. Parents across the country opted to not have their children vaccinated. Today, the country is paying the price and infections are claiming the lives of dozens of children.
