How do I turn off the move tool tooltip in Photoshop CC?

I find the little black window that shows up with the move tool or transform tool to be very distracting in Photoshop CC. It appears next to the curser when using the move tool or next to the element I want to transform. I have spoken with two technical support representatives that stated that this is a new feature that helps the user to "see" the numerical values of the object being worked on, and this feature cannot be turned off. I feel Adobe blundered in making this a permanent feature. They obviously fail to understand that many of their advanced users are creative artists that rely on their own sense of balance, and do not need numbers cluttering up their workspace. I urge other Photoshop users to contact Adobe to fix this intentional bug, and make this feature user adjustable.

Thank you for your quick reply! I'm surprised that the Adobe technical support representative and his supervisor didn't know about this. Happy new year!
