It's Epic vs Apple! But this time by proxy in the great state of North Dakota! But what does the land of liberty and union and home of "The World's Largest Holstein Cow," have with the tech wars?

As it turns out...everything.

Join us as we discuss the more northerly Dakota's proposal to make Epic's claims against Apple law, how Tim Sweeney and other developers have reacted, and just what problems may be facing the proposal in the future.

We don't even have a moderately sized Holstein cow...in Virtual Legality.
