    Thumbs down New JB update finally here and disappointing...

    I finally got the JB update. Looking at it, the update did nothing noticable besides ruining a good thing. The font changed, the icons changes... that is ok. But why do we get more junk installed on the phone... Google Books and Movies is still here, now added Google Magazines. You still can't uninstall them, except maybe rooted. Also, chrome is now added, they added more history tracking for files you've opened. They also added folders to the gallery, but there is no option to merge them into one... not my cup of tea. Also, you have to confirm things all the time. If you want to power it off.. you hold the power button like before, then tap power off like before, then you have to confirm that you want to turn it off... WTF. The alarm is now a 2 step process... It reminds me of Windows Vista... Epic fail. Hey JB makers, why do you screw up so much stuff rather than fix them. These are just a few issues I found so far.

    Does anyone else feel the same or not?

    So far I like it. Google Now is cool and the updated notifications are nice too. It seems faster and smoother thanks to project butter. I need to play around with it more of course but I like it better from the start then I did ICS. Battery is what I am watching. I had finally gotten my battery life back to where I wanted it with ICS and I hope JB does not make it worse.

    4.1.2, no biggy, I don't notice that any of my icons except the camera has changed.I was really waiting for the voice comands and voice search as those never worked for me on ics. My voice is deep and a slight, maybe not toooo slight, southern accent.Not like I was speaking a foriegn language. seems better but I will see if it still annoyees the s---- out of me going down the road. Even my old BBbold was better.
    My daughter on AT&T was pushed 4.1.1 last month, what's the dif?

    I really am not a power user so the maxx was fine for me on ICS with the exception of the voice recognition apps.

    It's the same with every new release...

    I want it. I want it. I want it. When will Motorola and Verizon finally release it? I want it. Downloading. I hate it.

    Truth, people are never happy especially when they have to figure stuff out on their own

    Should I activate Google Now? Will it use too much battery?
