comment How do I un-install Internet Explorer when it isn't on my application list to un install?
Uninstalling and reinstalling applications rarely fixes anything if at all. With applications that comes with the system, uninstalling is fraught with issues. Instead you should try Clear Data and Cache first in Application manager. If that doesn't help, it's unlikely reinstalling Browser will fix anything.

In other words, it sums up to either a bug or faulty hardware.

comment Are there any risks to rooting a device?
@Jeff: no, it isn't one of the permissions in the permission dialog, at least not on non-rooted devices. I figure a root manager could potentially integrate root permission management into the permissions dialog, but that would most likely not be a good idea as most people had the habit of just clicking through the permission dialog without inspecting it carefully.

comment Best rated apps ? Any list of them?
Such ordering would've been useless to separate the cream from the crop. The best rated app is the app that is rated by 5-star by one person.

comment Is there a way to completely disable the dialer including emergency calls to make an old phone a “tablet”?
@Piskvor: do you have reference or evidence of that? That the phone will try the home carrier's network first when making an emergency calls?

comment What lurks behind these Gmail/GTalk permissions?
It's not surprising that Chrome contains more code on the side features than browsing. The majority of the code for rendering pages is in WebKit (now Blink) and V8 and the main browsing window is basically the same as with Chromium project.
