T-Mobile Strips Universal Search from Samsung GS3
T-Mobile USA is pushing a minor maintenance update to its variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III. As with similar updates provided by other carriers, the update removes the universal search function from the T-Mobile version of the device. Apple holds a patent for universal search, and Samsung previously said it was removing the feature form its devices as a preventative measure. According to T-Mobile, the update also makes some minor performance improvements.

It's bad enough that T-Mobile phones are infected with T-Mobile spamware, but now they are remotely vandalizing our phones.
Clearly they want to impress Apple, which loves that sort of thing.
