Google "Just got off the phone with Google over their Android app store (Market or Google Play to those keeping track of the name changes) about an application that I purchased that can no longer be found. Evidentially their new policy in the Market can be summed up as a head shrug and the words 'I got mine'. They have decided their fifteen minute refund window is not only absolute, but also applies even in cases where the developers are actively screwing over their customers." Yes, it's an angry rant, and yes, if that bother you, you can skip it, but the guy or girl has a point. Google has some major work to do on the Play Store.

I agree entirely. At least you have a choice with Android to not use Googles Market/Play, and use a competitors or none at all, and still install games and apps (without needing to hack the device). While this is no excuse by a long shot, it does provide a way to "vote" with your wallet in a less extreme manner.

I have never had a problem with the Android Market personally, but again I would never buy a digital product for more than a couple dollars anyway so any loss I might suffer costs less than a cheeseburger ;)
