And another.  Notable only because they're unusual and clustered.  (What does it mean? Rushing things out the door?)  Normally 
everything works well.

I have two active Android phones.  On one, an automatic change was pushed that changed "Market" to "Play".  I then manually 
triggered updates on 5 apps.  Something crashed, and now there is no "Market" or "Play" or "Google Play" on the phone...  On the 
other, there was no push, but when I triggered Market, it showed the new agreement acceptance dialog, and still shows as "Market" as 
an app.

Didn't work, still broken.
