You know on windows like remove hardware feature is there one on the iMac? Or do you just pull the plug?

Then just pull it out. Only things that need ejecting will show on finder on the left.

Unless its a storage device it doesn't need to be ejected. The whole point of ejecting is to make sure the OS is not still trying to read or write to a storage device right while you try to unplug it.

In windows or OSX you can unplug devices anytime you want (except storage devices)
