    I find kind of disturbing that everyone's lighting their torches and getting ready to put the author at the stake just because he talked shit about Apple. It's almost like he did a yo-mama joke and you got really offended. Come on.

    Every brand puts undeletable apps in our phones, but the fact that everyone does it doesn't make it right. We should be able to remove every app we want, provided it is not necessary for the OS to run. How can you not agree with him about this?

    Maybe you're right and the author is wrong, but he has at least one point right. And you're all being assholes.

      I think people are upset because not able to remove OEM stock apps is the least of any "software problems" w/ Apple.

      We'd expect much more from a blog post with the controversial headline "Apple has a software problem". The headline also reminds me of Marco Armen's blog post w/ the title "Apple has lost the functional high ground" too.

      The fact the author uses up to 50% of the stock apps also make his argument much weaker.

        That's an excellent point. I wish the rest of the criticism in the thread were like yours and not as "you can easily hide [the apps]. I don't see a need for change" or "Do your web apps have settings screens to hide menus I don't want to see?"

        Anyway, thanks. I'm moving on now.
