Did you miss them? 1 — Small businesses can now create Pinterest ‘Shop the Look’ Pins and sell more items. Pinterest’s Shop the Look tool lets visitors search for similar items that they see on the site by clicking on certain parts of a pin connected to the image.

Google's Building 44, where Android is developed. Ron Amadeo We're still seeing the fallout from the European Commission's $5 billion antitrust fine against Google. Earlier this week, Google announced it would comply with the ruling by unbundling the Google Android app package, allowing OEMs to skip Chrome and Google Search in favor of alternatives. The catch is that, since ad revenue from these Google services was used to support Android development, Google will start charging device makers that license Google apps but choose the unbundled route. Now, thanks to a report from The Verge, we're getting an idea of just how much this more flexible app licensing scheme will cost OEMs. Citing "confidential documents" that were shown to the site,
