Not exactly sure which ones to disable, I know which ones are secure from the list but idk if I want to disable some for fear I use them. What're the must apps for disabling that really slow the phone down?

None. Bloatware is myth. It is merely a few extra app icons.
If the author knew how to use a phone, he would know about stacking folders and hiding icons. Since he knows nothing about phones he pens an article like this one.
To be clear, there is a difference between ROM and RAM. If a processes is not running, therefore using no RAM, it does not slow the phone down. Or make it heavier. Or thicker.
Only a phonearena author would write an article like this in 2012. Only phonearena would publish one. Can't they find anyone who knows how to use a phone?

Wish I could find out how to disable that annoying pop up asking if I want to connect to wi-fi whenever I open certian apps, (email, Facebook, etc). I don't have anything enabled as far as wi-fi is concerned...
