Default Why do they force bloatware on us?

Why would Sony put a shortcut for "What's New" in the most obtrusive place possible and then not give us an option to remove it or disable the app?

This service only caters to a specific demographic yet Sony feels the need to impose it on everybody who had the misfortune of buying their device.
I'm starting to regret updating to 4.4.4
