why name changes?
i think it has to do with a fruit.
apple app store, a store is a market.
so apple own the name market.

I was about to say that 'even Apple wouldn't be so petty as to claim a copyright on the word 'store' and all its possible variants'....then i remembered this is APPLE we are talking about, so sadly you are probably right.

You fanboi's are worse then those who ride the special needs bus to school. Google pulls a boner by changing the name of their app store, and you blame Apple? One question, do you where one of those football like helmets so you don't beat your head against the wall?

It's funny that I'm being called a Google fanboy when usually I'm accused of being a Google hater.... Laughing

At any rate, the resort to personal insults is a sign that you don't know how to respond substantively.

T Bone,
It really wasn't directed to you, but as a general, and there's truth to it, and yes guilty. Its more to make people think and inflame then anything else. And oddly, I'm waiting for it to show up on my SGSII (international version). Checked tonight.

I completly agree with that. If something is popular, the name should never ever be changed.

names build a brand. this is a big mistake.

Sometimes they do it to try and change the stigma behind the name even if its popular. I would agree that its a risky move. But the TL is pretty well known today. I own a TL and love it!!!

The Google name is obvious. They want to sell to more than just people with Android devices, so the Google name makes more sense.

Play's a little tougher, but obviously they're looking to push the book, music, video, and game business over the more productivity based apps. I don't know what the market share or profit margin differences are, but it looks like they see more money there.
