You can uncheck all the services it uses in the Blinkfeed settings and it'll just sit there empty. It is actually far more useful post 4.2 update.

freitasm:nunasdream: Any idea when we'll get the 4.2 OTA?
Might as well just flash a custom rom at this point.
Checked for updates and got the small fix up. Then after a restart checked again... Installing 4.2.2 now:
(Telecom HTC One here)
bradstewart: A couple of things...
Updates aren't pushed out to everyone at once, they take a few days so servers aren't overloaded etc.
Telecom and Vodafone editions are identical so everyone will get it soon enough.
As for anti virus on Android, you are the best protection. The only way you are vulnerable to the exploits is if you are sideloading apps from dodgy sources. Don't do that and you'll be fine.
4.2 is definitely worth the update. The menu bar changes, quick settings and perf increases make for a much better experience.
bradstewart: I haven't seen a good one yet. I personally don't run one because most of them cause a considerable performance hit.
Google Play now scans all apps for malicious behaviour as well so sideloading is one of the few ways you can be vulnerable be even those apps are scanned before install if you don't turn off the setting.
