Get Rid of the Apple Watch App, almost: iOS 8.2 Update Tip
by Gordon Brown
When and if you install the latest iOS 8.2 update, you will notice a new Apple Watch App has been installed! If you are like us, you are looking forward to being able to use the app one day, and you only have to wait till April 24th to buy the watch!However, if you are not planning on buying the watch and you do not want see the app on your phone, there are two things you can do:
At this time, you cannot delete the app, but at least with these two methods, you can ‘hide’ the app on a little used screen or folder.
- You can touch and hold the app and wait till it ‘jiggles’. When it jiggles, you can drag it to the right edge of the screen and place it on your last screen where presumably you don’t go too often.
- You can drag it on top of another little used app which will make a folder with both apps residing inside the folder. You can also name the folder something fun, like “Things to Delete” or “Stuff I’ll Never Use.” Get creative.

New England is always beautiful, but especially so in autumn when fall foliage is reaching peak colors and we can all agree that this year has been exceptionally lovely. Apple has always appreciated beauty and this shows in the sleek and powerful products they offer, designed to make viewing the world delightfully appealing.
The colors of fall have never looked more brilliant than on a 27″ iMac with Retina 5K display. Editing those Thanksgiving photos and videos of the family will be a joy as they come to life like never before on this iMac’s expansive and vibrant screen.
The quad-core Intel i5 processor, 1TB Fusion drive and 8GB of memory paired with the size and ultra-high resolution of this display means the Retina iMac is surprisingly economical for all the power Apple has packed inside it.
TBI Computer, Your Local Apple Resource, has this new iMac with Retina 5K display in stock and available now! We’ve got one on display in our showroom, so don’t hesitate to come in and experience the magic hands-on! You may find the perfect gift for that special someone (or even better: you).
Protect Yourself from Computer Horror Stories
Posted on October 16, 2014

It’s October in New England, a time for hay rides, hot cider, and scary stories, but not all stories start with, “It was a dark and stormy night…” A new age has brought us new frights. Is that whistling sound the wind through the trees, or the baleful whirring of a computer fan? That sinister clanking – ghostly chains or a failing hard drive? That laptop seems on, but its screen stares blankly, not an image to be seen – could it be one of the undead? Well, perhaps not, but scary things can happen to your computer and these are the horror stories of real life.
Thankfully, there are ways to protect yourself. AppleCare is available with the purchase of any new Apple computer and can be purchased at any time within the first years of ownership. It costs less than one average repair, and it covers an additional two years of the life of your computer. You may get lucky and avoid having a repair in the first year of owning your computer, but the odds get increasingly worse as your computer ages – why take the chance? Sit around the campfire, have a few smores, and know that with AppleCare the only horrors in store for you this October are the fictional ones.
The team TBI Computer are at the ready to help protect you! We also offer a wide array of training sessions and classes to help in this process – go to www.tbicomputer.com for further information.
