If you're a Google Shopping Express user, you may have recently received an email requesting that you participate in a survey about the service. Among the questions were many about pricing, including one which displayed the following chart detailing plan pricing options for the quasi-beta delivery system. The survey asks, essentially, if you'd be OK with this sort of cost structure - $90 per year (or $8 a month) for unlimited free "regular" and alcohol deliveries over $15, and $8 per order (rather than per store) of refrigerated goods under $150.

The Play Store's Refund Window Now Seems To Be Around 2 Hours For Many Paid Apps And Games, Not 15 Minutes

If you've purchased an app or game on the Play Store recently and gone to see if you could return it, you may have noticed something a bit odd: you could still do so outside of the alleged 15 minute return window. In fact, that now seems to be the case for many paid apps and games, despite no published changes in the store's refund policies.

To test this seemingly longer window, three members of the AP team all bought apps on the Play Store.

Google Photos May Soon Break Up With Google+, As The Post-Vic Era Fallout Continues

Google+, for all the criticism it has garnered from the "hip" tech crowd, has been an incredibly important product for the search giant since its unveiling back in 2011. Remember when you had to get an invite to join Google+? How far we've come.

But Google+ quickly became more than just Google+. The Hangouts messaging platform and, later, Google+ Photos were key leaps forward for Google in two areas where the company was arguably becoming stagnant.

HP Is Making A Stylish Smartwatch, But It Won't Run Android Wear So You Probably Don't Need To Click This

HP is gearing up to unveil a smartwatch in cooperation with luxury goods discount site Gilt and awarded men's fashion designer Michael Bastian. The watch will work with both Android and iOS devices, and HP is in charge of heading up the software effort. That means, yes, that this watch will 100% definitely not run Android Wear, but could quite possibly be Android-based.

Fashionista seems to have been given advanced access to information about the watch, which will "[allow] the wearer to receive email and text message notifications, control music remotely and check weather, stocks and sports updates." The teaser image, below, does look pretty nice.

'Google Hands-Free' Icon Spotted In Promotional GIF Teases Unreleased In-Car Functionality

Earlier this month, when we recapped all the rumor and leak posts we had published leading up to Google I/O, hands-free functionality called Android Eyes-Free (codenamed KITT) was marked as "partially live." For those in need of a refresher, our post outlined in-car functionality that would carry a stripped-down interface, notifications read aloud by Google, and a new hand-waving gesture used to wake the device.

While the hands-free hotword functionality has already debuted, the dedicated in-car interface, void of any visual chrome, has yet to be revealed (or even really hinted at) by Google.
