I have absolutely no interest in reading life or facebook. I don't want a clock on my Kobo or a dictonary. But I do know that some or all of these things are very important to other people.
Why should the fact that I don't want them mean that nobody else can have them either?
I actually like looking at the recommendations on the website!! (Now I feel like I have confessed to a serious crime!) As I don't purchase directly from my Kobo I don't want them on my Kobo but I expect that someone who does purchase directly on their Kobo would think that the recommendations (or advertising as others are calling it) would be beneficial.
We are all different and want slightly different things from our Kobos. I think it would be great if we could show or hide the features that we all value.
