The worst part of it all...

...is that for some stupid reason Google decided to let manufacturers/carriers make it impossible to uninstall the stuff without rooting the phone. If you're lucky you can at least 'deactivate' it, but it'll still sit there taking up internal storage space. And then they made it so you can't install apps to the SD card either so that's fun to try and deal with.
