    I'm going to still call it the Market, or maybe "Market, er, Play Store." Why not call it something like "Google Market" or "Google Store?"

    Recently I saw an ad with two young musicians. They said they used the Blackberry to schedule performances and keep in contact with the other musicians. They said, they used Blackberry as they needed a phone for working, not for playing. And here Google decices to call it the "Play Store." Sorta just as fuel to the flame.

    A la George Carlin~~

    With Apple you have an App Store.
    With Android you have a Play Store.

    Let's PLAY

    I liked it because of the good deals they had for the first couple days lol. I think the new icon is better looking too.

    The way I see it the just gave the market a new name and icon not what i'd call a major update but maybe it'll look more appealing to less tech-savy people. Apple has the app store, windows has the marketplace, I forgot what blackberry has and now google has the google play store. Doesn't the name google play store seem more inviting then just app store or marketplace? And adding google's name to it might make it easier for people to associate google and android.
    Just my .02

    Couldn't care less about name but the icon doesn't stand out at all. I didn't have to hunt for the last one like I do this one and it's even on a home screen. I also don't browse it as much as I did before they started monkeying around with it.

    Also, the bugdroid and names like icecream sandwich and Google are cute and stand out. " Play" is kinda boring but the icon is really boring. Ought to be a bugdroid.

    Might as well call it Google Gay... It's a ridiculous childish name that doesn't fit IMO.. After Google play we can download bedtime stories and make pixie dust with the faries...

    Re-branding... gotta keep those Marketing folks at Google occupied with something, since there's so much money at Google floating around...
