    It’s not just about e-mail, stupid

    Good day and welcome back to Equity, TechCrunch’s enterprise capital-centered podcast, wherever we unpack the figures powering the headlines.

    Your humble Fairness crew is quite fatigued but in great spirits, as there was a large amount to communicate about this 7 days. But, to start with, 3 issues to get started us off:

    All that reported, here’s what we talked about on the display:

    • Epic Online games is on the lookout to elevate a large stack of dollars (Bloomberg, VentureBeat) at a new, larger valuation. We have been curious about how its lower-minimize shop could help it gain inroads with developers big and little. That component of the chat, the take-price of the Fortnite father or mother firm on the function of many others was pretty cogent to the other principal matter of the day:
    • Apple vs. DHH. So Hey released this 7 days, and the new spin on email promptly overshadowed its product launch by finding into a spat with Apple about no matter if it requirements to insert the capability to sign up for the paid company on iOS, thus offering Apple a cut of its profits. DHH and crew do not concur. Apple is beneath fire for anti-aggressive techniques at house and overseas — of varying depth, and from distinct sources — earning this all the additional spicy.
    • Up grade raises $40 million for its credit-concentrated neobank.
    • Degreed raises $32 million for its upskilling system.
    • And, at the conclude, our choose on the present well being of the startup market place. There have been a sheaf of reports lately about what is going on in startup land. We gave our take.

    And that’s that. Have a charming weekend and capture up on some snooze.
