The English teacher in me is coming out, so prepare for the dorkiness. I believe Google is using the term "play" in regards to its definition of "employ oneself in diversion, amusement, or recreation." In which case, Google Play makes absolute sense. I am going to employ in the amusement of apps, music, books, movies, etc. To me, it makes more sense than iTunes. Tunes refers to music. So by definition of name, it doesn't make sense for iTunes to have movies, books, or anything non-music related.

I like the icon, but I'd like the center symbol to be more prominent. More symbol, less bag.
