This is something I've wanted since I got my 2nd gen iPod Touch.
However, with the addition of folders, this is no longer that necessary.
I'd happily trade the ability to remove stock Apple apps to be able to open addresses directly in Google Maps...

Fixed that for ya.
This is like saying murders are way down, but ignoring to mention that you've put the entire population in straight jackets.
Yes, that was horrible. But one of so damn many. For me it was the drivel about Midichlorians, and then a child's half-baked "yippee"s in horrid Episode 1. The prequels broke suspension of disbelief many many times, but even Jar-Jar didn't bug me as bad as the boy actor playing young Annakin because, you know, the whole damned story is ultimately about Annakin. The kid was so poorly directed and his lines so bad, I never believed in him or in any of his abilities or that someday he would become an arch-villain who would choke the life out of people as easy as look at them. Every seen he was in, every line, and every ridiculously contrived tie-in with the other films (I fucking built C-3PO!!!) shoved me out of the movie to look for the nearest exit. I couldn't forgive that shit. Kids can act well and carry a movie if a director takes them serious enough (e.g., The Sixth Sense), but Lucas didn't bother to give a shit.
My favorite part of Episode 1 is still the scene from the making of bit where he's sitting in the pod racer with the wind machine on and keeps yelling, "I CAN'T HEAR YOU CHRIS! I CAN'T HEAR YOU CHRIS!"
Makes me smile just thinking about it.
Also: The ads on the e-ink Kindle are more like a screen saver, and more than once I've gotten a book by an author I like on sale because of them!
And on the subject of kids - one of the best aspect of my Kindle Touch is that my kids aren't interested in it, leaving me to read in (relative) peace...
Here's why I disable ads on Slashdot: VIDEO!
If all their ads were static, I would be happy to uncheck Disable Ads...
They probably just signed a contract with Jebediah Kerman's Junkyard and Spaceship Parts Co.
Good Morning America spent like 10 minutes discussing that Donald Trump was the most searched for of the GOP candidates, like that is news in itself.
Thus begins the downward spiral, feeding in on itself...
Step 1 - Introduce ads.
Step 2 - Introduce $10/day charge to remove said ads
Step 3 - Profit!
VPN to the PC from a tablet/phone then mirror to the TV.
At home I use Splashtop on my PC to my iPhone, screen mirror to my AppleTV, bluetooth keyboard.
I'm sure you could do better with a device like a Fire TV with a wireless keyboard & mouse plugged into it, but I had all of the above already.
Damnit, you tricked me into voting by including a Cowboy Neil option!
And the bad guys were always white men with British accents. Oh noes.
