The ability to remove the data needs to be done at the source and leave the search engines do what they are supposed to do.
If an app is built for just that phone then you have a point, but they aren't. They are built for many phones, different versions of Android and as such there is a constant update process to fix issues with the app working on one thing or the next. What phone are you using that makes it so you can barely use it when it is getting an update? Perhaps you have too many apps?
- Items listed as having Prime often do not arrive for 5-6 business days. This is typical for larger items. It annoys me that Amazon lists tham as prime (to me this means item will arrive 2-3 business days), and their practice of having fine print about extra handling time for some prime items is abrasive. Just don't list it as Prime if it won't be shipped for 3-4 days!
You must living timbuktu... and order really off the wall stuff. Here in Phx, a major Amazon warehouse is so close this just doesn't happen. I get all Prime items in 2 business days or sometimes even the next day. It is rare for an item to miss the 2 day business delivery date.
- The streaming video options are weak and I don't like the picture quality
Don't really use Prime for this... so it is an extra for me. Gives me a second place to look if Netflix doesn't have something.
- "Prime day" is a joke
Yes it is a joke considering anyone can basically participate (even non-prime members with a free signup) this for me is a non-issue. Who has time to spend all day on a business day watching to see what is going on sale.
- They raised the annual price of Prime 3x since I signed up
Only the second annual price increase as long as I've been a member for many years.
- Items shipped prime from Amazon have shown up obivously used or broken multiple many times over the past year (much more often than before)
- Amazon's support people were really hard to deal with when things in the above bullet point happened
This has never been an issue. Contact with Amazon has normally been quick and to the point and I have never waited for a resolution to the issue.
- I have been finding better prices on many things from retailers like Costco and Walmart compared to what Amazon offers
Seriously? Non-savvy consumers get what they get when they don't research what they are buying before hitting the buy button. There are always trade offs to things you buy and where you buy them. For the most part Amazon is convenience of getting the item fast without having to go out and deal with the crowds, heat etc, but are not always the best price... Costco doesn't always have the best deals either and Walmart... many times doesn't have the quality items to even start with.
Story is interesting but without naming the apps... whats the point. I use an ad block on my rooted device, but many are not rooted and can't.
I've never seen a Windows system that was broken by an update.
I have. I never do updates until the following weekend when I have time to deal with an issue. I also keep my workstation online for days on end with work which I can pick up remotely where ever I happen to be. A reboot is not a desired option in the middle of a work week when I have no time to deal with a mess up.
I can't afford to be a guinea pig.
It's okay for radio to play it but not stream it? Stupid and ignorant.
I already have everything he has done. for a long time. I will listen to it how I want to listen to it when I want to listen to it.

Use the same date to turn off Facebook too?
illustrates that in the long run, the United States has some significant disadvantages as a spaceport location.
We can fix that. Just make NZ a territory of the US and that is not an issue any more. Clears up the Kim Dotcom issue too.
Nothing more annoying than having a business domain which has hidden their contacts behind a privacy by proxy which never gets responded to to deal with a technical issue related to their domain (email for example).
StartSSL sucks. Renewing a cert they said I had to have a Level 2 Cert instead because I had a PayPal link on the site.
Switched everything over to NameCheap SSL PositiveSSL which cost money but don't play games, are very quick for approvals etc...
I find it really ironic that Google, a company so used to being the new hotness upstart company, is so willfully ignoring usage patterns of a significant minority comprising "the youth" and people on the wrong side of the internet divide, and much of the third world, and anyone without a data plan outside of wifi range.
I'm sure Google is very aware of the usage patterns as they track everything they do. As for ignoring the wrong side of the Internet device and much of the third world, that isn't their business, they are an Internet business and almost everything they do is based on that. If you don't have access to the Internet, most of their stuff doesn't work.
As for a calendar entry, unless it is brand new, you will have sync'd the calendar entry and unless you CHOSE to silence the scheduled time alert, you will still get alerted even if you have no WiFi or Internet access. There are also a lot more options to dealing with a calendar entry than a simple SMS message. You can control how soon you get notified, repeat notifications, options on how to get notifications etc..
SMS, is just text message you can stop unless you want to black list the number and you can't choose when or how much time in advance you want that notification.
As for your kid's french tutor, sounds like they need someone to help them make a better process. A calendar entry for your kid's scheduled appointment, shouldn't include other peoples schedules in it.
Just what you need more stuff to go wrong especially if you never plan on using it. A lean OS makes more sense than an over bloated one.

Funny how if you prevent the government from doing something it is automatically a threat for terrorism.
Texas conservatives have seized control of the state Board of Education, using it as a platform to rewrite education standards to reflect a more conservative, "Godly" point of view and to demand that textbooks be rewritten to conform with those standards.
Texas proposes rewriting school text books to deny man made climate change
Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
