    at last more updates on market ... looking forward for more stats! I want top installed/rated and be able to select week/month/year(or ever) ... for each/all sections separate & together!

    happy to see 4GB games but 15 min refund isn't enough, I want AT LEAST 15min refund window starting the time I run the APP 1st time, not when I start downloading it, no way I can download 4GB in 15min, try it and ask for refund >_<

      They've actually announced a change to that algorithm - see towards the end.

      15 min refund is better than no refund. I have 1,206 apps in itunes but only paid for about 3 or 4 of them. I cant imagine how much money I would have wasted if I had purchased these apps from the appstore as opposed to Jailbreaking and using installous.

      The upcoming Market and the new lists.

    I've loved every single detail of the I/O, and I'm so fascinated by Google this year... But the 15-minute window is still a huge inconvenience and has stopped me buying many things... Even 30 minutes would allay some concerns. 1 hour would allow me to decide "ok I can download this app when I have the time to fully evaluate it."

    One way or another, 15 minutes does not cut it.
