    Angry Unwanted Google apps

    Is there any way to disable updates to Google+ and Google music? I don't use either, have never 'downloaded' them (although they appear as apps regardless...) Frankly, I don't want Google monitoring my music nor care to participate in their "social networking". Yet every day I am prompted to update these two apps. Quite annoying. Considering other recent revelations about Google's efforts to pry into my personal business, I'm about ready to throw this device in the trash can.

    You can go to settings > apps, and for those individual apps, disable them. I can't guarantee you won't get update prompts however. But they'll be out of the way so to speak.

    If you are rooted you can use system app remover apps or titanium backup to simply uninstall them as i did.
