Is Google Play the sign Google no longer cares about me?

Okay, so its only a name change, but the death of the Android Market in preference to the Google Play Store seems a curious move from the big G.

Not that long ago I was becoming more and more Google, using Docs, Gmail, Reader and more.  However, even with an Android phone, I find myself looking at options elsewhere.  The ‘Play’ switch risks alienating the Enterprise and users such as me even more.  Okay I might buy the odd movie, book and music file but that is not a huge percentage of my expenditure.

This video perhaps shows why Play is like it is – going down the hardware route is shifting Google’s focus and I am not entirely sure it is for the better.

Perhaps Microsoft may yet come good via Windows 8.

The next twelve months is certainly going to be a big one in consumer and enterprise technology.
