Google celebrates one year of Google Play with deals

Today marks exactly one year since Google re-branded the Android Market into the Google Play Store and the company is observing the occasion with limited-time deals and freebies.

Deals this week include $5 books and $.99 movie rentals as well as select magazines for only $1 each. What’s more, a number of television shows are being offered at no cost, including Breaking Bad, Community, and Justified.
