    I used my account on my friend's iMac Desktop to buy one movie and one app because both were on the sale at the same time on that day. I wanted to get both out of the way, so when I save up enough money to buy my own iMac this Holiday Season. The thing is that once I de-authorize my account from his iMac and the movie and app that I purchased still show up in his movie/app lists. How can he remove both from his list permanently....? Nothing works. Does that means that whatever was purchased on different accounts will always remain in the list forever despite having de-authorized the account from computer completely and permanently???

    You can use up to 5 Macs to be authorized to use the content you bought. I guess with the iDevices and Family Sharing this may be different.
    Anyways if you really need to prevent your friend from using your app and contents you have to deauthorize his Mac.
