How to disable apps without root

But this should do it: connect with ADB (you don't need root on your device).
See this for Ubuntu: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&highlight=adb

Then:

adb root (since we're on a cable we can get root temporarily)
adb shell pm list packages - will list all packages, find which one you want
adb shell pm disable [name of the package]

you're set.

By the way, my list is:

package:com.android.quicksearchbox
package:com.kobobooks.android.twitterstub
package:ca.jamdat.flight.scrabblefree
package:com.kobobooks.android.facebookstub
package:com.inqmobile.android.facebook
package:com.inqmobile.suite.b
package:com.zinio.android.settings
package:com.newspaperdirect.pressreader.android
package:com.rdio.android.ui
package:com.newspaperdirect.globe2go.android
package:com.inqmobile.android.facebook.apps.people
package:com.zinio.mobile.android.reader
package:com.kobobooks.android.gmailstub
package:com.merriamwebster

So these are safe.
