WHAT I THINK ABOUT THE STUPID STUFF GOING ON IN THE WORLD
I hate the iPhone! It is a well-made phone, but Apple’s control measures are Draconian at best. I’m tired of being told what apps I can and cannot have on my phone. I’m tired of being unable to tether my laptop to my phone. I’m tired of not being able to make phone calls in areas where other people (specifically Verizon’s Crackberry heads) can make calls. The iPhone is great for people who don’t travel across the country, but it is NOT great for people who travel a lot. I need to make the move to the Droid X. Anyway, this rant isn’t about my level of satisfaction with this phone. What this IS about is the fact that there are apps on the phone that I don’t want. I will spare you more of my “hate my phone” speech and just tell you how to remove YouTube, how to remove Safari and how to remove iTunes. First, let me just add that you should be able to just press on it and delete it like you can delete the apps from the app store. Why are Youtube, the stock app, Safari, the weather and the clock special to Apple? Why are they trying to make them special to me? Anyway, here we go.
That is it! You can now have your phone without YouTube, Safari, iTunes, etc. I’m really upset that I have to do this, but I guess you do what you have to do. Making me jump through hoops to remove apps is just very stupid!
