Customer Question

I have problems with both my iPhone 5 and my macBook Air. I recently changed my work situation, and I continue to get updates on email on my phone, can't turn them off, and can't link my own gmail account to my phone. On my MacBook Air, i need to remove 2 drop boxes that are taking up WAY too much space, such that I can't do simple things such as update my resume. Can you help or do I need to make an in-store appt. with a genius?? Thanks.
