I bought a refurbished 2013 Macbookpro off of ebay and made sure to CMD+R, reset the OS and unmount/recreate the main 512 SSD harddrive.
On setting up my computer again, when opening 'terminal', the prompt displays
Toms-AppleWatch, when the user I put in for the mac was "Darren".
Why would it show this name? I've tried
scutil --get ComputerName scutil --get HostName scutil --get LocalHostName
and none of them show Toms-Applewatch.
I think someone named Tom was in my house a couple months back and DID probably have an applewatch (he is very Techie).... is this a weird coincidence or did his watch somehow set some placeholder on our local wireless network that my macbook picked up on? Or is it something with the previous owners data somehow still uploading to this mac? I signed in on my own ICloud account so it cant be that (and i reinstalled the OS!)
System Preferences --> Network --> Wifi --> Advanced Settings --> WINS
It shows a "NetBIOS Name" equal to TOMS-APPLEWATCH.... not sure how that got there or what set it to that.
