    If it doesn't show it then I am thinking you can't delete it ~ let's see what others chime in with!

    I'm really hoping that's not the case (although if it is, I can certainly understand why people hate apple)

    You can't delete any of the Apple apps that it came with. If you don't want to see them, stick them in a folder somewhere out of the way.

    There's a jailbreak app to delete (or hide) the apple apps. Don't know what the app is called though

    It's not an Apple thing... It's a technology thing. You can't delete the NASCAR app from a Sprint Evo either.

    It would be nice to have a Settings option to hide icons for stuff you didn't use, but I'm not so bothered that I'd jailbreak.

    All bloatware on htc evo, including nascar, can be removed or frozen after a good rooting.

    I dislike ugly icons and was most annoyed when I couldn't delete stock apple icons like YouTube Notes etc. So they got banished to a folder as far to the rear as I could throw them.

    Happily I need never look at their foul features again. I really though apple could do better in icon design.
