Epic’s Unreal Engine got a stay of execution in Apple devices, here’s the week at Variable.

Good morning, everyone!

Judge stops Apple from blocking Epic’s Unreal Engine from iOS and Mac

Epic (and other game developers) got a reprieve after a Judge stopped Apple from removing access to Unreal Engine on their devices. Still no Fornite though.

What’s a good song to secretly sing in the shower:

  • Franz: Anything Bon Jovi, It’s My Life in particular. Of course, this could just be the fact that the workers at the construction site in front of my workplace are singing it 24/7.
  • Ralph: Oddly enough, I’m just discovering an old Snow Patrol song, Run. So, that’s on replay for this week.

What’s Variable this week:

  • More on Apple vs Epic, for sure.
  • Cool shirts, as in they do keep you cool?
  • Also, we’ve got something special coming on the weekend, stay tuned for that.

That’s all we have for you. See you next week!

P.S. What do you mean the cover image is still the same?
