- Business Insider 10:45August 14, 2020Apple and Google just got sued by the maker of the hugely popular video game 'Fortnite' over their app store policies. Here's what you need to know about the major antitrust battle it reignited. (AAPL)Mandel Ngan/Getty Images; Denis Balibouse/Reuters Epic Games sued Apple and Google on Thursday for booting its popular video game "Fortnite" from their app stores, accusing the companies of engaging in monopolistic behavior.
It's the latest escalation in a long-running fight between the tech giants and app developers, who claim Apple and Google unfairly wield their control over mobile app marketplaces and operating systems to stifle competition.
The lawsuits also come as lawmakers and regulators are growing more concerned that tech companies have become too powerful and are threatening to crack down.
Here's what you need to know about Epic's feud with Apple and Google and why it matters.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Why did Epic sue Apple and Google?
On Thursday morning, Epic announced a permanent 20% discount on the in-game currency players use within "Fortnite" to purchase upgrades and customize their characters. But Epic said it couldn't offer the same discount to mobile players because Apple and Google take a 30% cut of all in-app purchases.
Instead, Epic introduced a way for players to pay it directly within the iOS and Android apps, saying it could then pass along the savings to them. But in bypassing Apple and Google's payment systems, Epic broke their app store rules, and the companies swiftly removed "Fortnite."See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Pathologists debunk 13 coronavirus mythsSee Also:Google just booted 'Fortnite' from the Play Store, hours after Apple banned it from the iPhone and iPad App StoreApple just removed 'Fortnite' from the App Store, and the company behind the game hit back with a scathing video that roasts the iPhone maker's most iconic adThe developer behind 'Fortnite' is suing Apple after the iPhone maker yanked the game from the App Store

Pennsylvania's Department of State has now asked the Supreme Court to allow for mail ballots to be counted if they're received up to three days after the Nov. 3 election date.
If approved that means the winner of the presidential race in the swing state won't be known for days after the election date.

- Business Insider 08:12August 14, 2020The Justice Department accused Yale University of discriminating against Asian American and white applicantsMichelle McLoughlin/Reuters The Justice Department accused Yale University of discriminating against Asian American and white applicants, which violates federal civil rights law.
The allegation came as a result of a federal investigation, which also found that Yale uses race as a factor in multiple steps of the admissions process and that Yale "racially balances its classes."
"Yale's race discrimination imposes undue and unlawful penalties on racially-disfavored applicants, including in particular Asian American and White applicants," Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband wrote in a letter to the college's attorneys.
The university "categorically" denied the allegation, calling it "meritless" and "hasty."
Yale said it considers a multitude of factors and looks at "the whole person when selecting whom to admit among the many thousands of highly qualified applicants."
"Given our commitment to complying with federal law, we are dismayed that the DOJ has made its determination before allowing Yale to provide all the information the Department has requested thus far," the university said in a statement.
"Had the Department fully received and fairly weighed this information, it would have concluded that Yale's practices absolutely comply with decades of Supreme Court precedent," the statement continued.

- Business Insider 07:23August 14, 2020'Patients are suffering across the board': A Texas ER doctor said hospitals are getting overwhelmed with patients of varying causes as the state gets battered by coronavirus outbreaksGo Nakamura/Getty Images Dr. Natasha Kathuria, an emergency medicine physician with expertise in public health and epidemiology, has been treating patients at the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.
Based in Austin, Texas, she described how doctors in the six different ERs where she works have become overrun with both coronavirus and non-coronavirus patients.
The ER doctor said the record-high coronavirus case counts don't portray "an accurate picture" of the situation in the state, as families and hospital staff feel not only the devastating impact of COVID-19 outbreaks but also patients who die of other causes.
"It's not just, 'We've got a lot of COVID-19, and everyone's dying of COVID-19,'" Kathuria said. "Patients with cancer are not getting their cancer surgery, patients who are delivering children in the hospital and not being able to feel comfortable that they're not at risk for COVID."
She emphasized the importance of showing how overwhelmed hospitals are in hopes to make it a higher priority to get a more cohesive and rapid coronavirus testing and contact tracing infrastructure in place.
Until then, Kathuria said she hopes that people put aside political beliefs and become more unified in their response to the virus, at least until the coronavirus becomes more manageable.
