    Hey I don't know if this is the proper place to post this but hopefully someone could direct me to the right place if it isn't.

    I just bought my first macbook (15" haswell) and I've been setting everything up and when I plug my phone into my computer iTunes sees it and then when a log in box appears it has someone else's email already in it. Has anyone else ever had this happen to them?

    Command + Shift + 3 --- to take a screenshot

    Never heard of this before, why not just delete it and enter your correct information?

    I did delete it, but I don't want to be using someone else's stuff. It just seems odd.

    search of the person's email shows that it isn't someone working for apple (as far as I can tell)

    this usually happens when you've installed apps associated with someone else's App Store account (i.e., pirating Mac App Store apps)
