'icicle' is what earlier versions of the SDK used to name the Bundle objects that got passed in to the onCreate method. The new SDK defaults the name to savedInstanceState. I've used them interchangeably, but for consistency it's probably easiest to stick with savedInstanceStatein your own projects.

It's great to hear you guys are finding the book useful, thanks for the kind words.
