"Epic vs Apple" has finally arrived, and as Tim Sweeney now famously said, we're in for some "fireworks"!

On day thirteen, Apple's developer relations testimony is rather jokey, while it certainly treats its security testimony as anything but a joke. The question is "Is time running out for Epic?".

An Apple a day definitely doesn't keep the lawyers away...in Virtual Legality.
