Google rebrands Android Market as Google Play Store; Has Sale to Celebrate


First, Google decided to consolidate their privacy policies. Now, Google is making sure everyone understands that they own Android. Google recently decided to rebrand the Android Market as "Google Play", which only makes sense, since 3 out of 4 of the things found in the Market can be used on non-Android devices. (Music is obvious, Videos is just YouTube rentals rebranded, and Books are on certain e-readers.) Not sure if I like the name, but it'll grow on me.

In celebration of their new name, Google has thrown sales up across the market... err, Play Store. Among the great games on sale for $.49 include half of the last Humble Android Bundle (Osmos and World of Goo), Dead Space, Need for Speed, and an old Kairosoft game. If you prefer something that isn't a game, SwiftKey is a terrific keyboard that doesn't go by the name of "Swype" and I've heard good things about Endomondo from people that make exercise a regular part of their life.

About MowDownJoeone of us since 5:38 PM on 01.09.2009

So, what's there to know about me? I'm Dave. I'm currently unemployed. I love baseball (huge Mets fan), but I don't like sports games. I've lived a crazy life. As far as taste in games go, I'm quite varied, playing anything on my Wii, DS, or 360 except for the previous mentioned sports games. I still have my SNES, though, and happily indulge in a bit of Retro-goodness every now-and-then (mostly Earthbound, but I still also have my copies of SMRPG, Super Mario Kart, Link to the Past, and Kirby Super Star). And... that's the main things.

I'm a music nut. I have a Last.FM. Here's a sample:

...Also, I like to play Magic: the Gathering, in case the banner didn't tip you off (the faux-card in the banner was made with Magic Set Editor, by the way). Been playing for almost 7 years now, though I'm on a break from the game due to... budget reasons.

If this intro seems brief, you should try meeting me... I've been known to listen more than talk.

Also, I recently got into this Twitter thing... I guess follow me if you want? https://twitter.com/mowdownjoe

Even more recently, I got into making Let's Plays. Check me out here and maybe subscribe if you like what you see?
