    Google Search Bar

    I have the Galaxy Nexus out on the FedEx truck on it's way to me, and I was looking at a co-workers Nexus last night and noticed that ICS has the google search bar on every damn screen. That's just stupid imo... I wouldn't mind it if it was just on the home screen, but why every screen? They should have an option to turn that widget off.. that's my only complaint so far

    I don't want to root to get rid of it, is there a hidden setting somewhere to disable it?

    No hidden setting. You have 2 options: Root and install custom rom or stay stock and install a different launcher.

    I like Nova Launcher, it looks exactly like the stock ICS launcher but with more features.

    Another way to make it disappear if you're stock is go into your apps under settings. Click on the "all" tab. When you see "google search" click on it, and disable it. It makes it go away on all the screens. The only downside is that you still can't use that now empty space for anything else, it is still "there", just hidden.

    That's one nice thing with ICS is that you can disable any apps you want while stock.

    Without the word Google on every screen, how will you remember who made the phone?!

    Nova isn't special...just good and functional. It is basically a stock launcher with a couple of bells and whistles. Oh...and it removes the search bar.

    You can also root as others have said...and then load Nova back up anyway...because it works.
