Today is a turning point for the Google-owned YouTube video environment.

Jolly Jam: Angry Birds maker makes its own Candy Crush

Rovio is about to try its luck with a Candy Crush-LIKE game, I suppose we should say.

Mostly the ability to delete them. The apps do little more than take up storage space and slow the operating system down; in other words, bloatware. However, that trend may finally change with the S6, as an insider report from SamMobile is saying Samsung will drop its own apps in favor of shipping the smartphone with Microsoft offerings.
