How do I get Playbook out of my AppWorld & remove uninstalled apps forever?

I had a Playbook.  Great device.  Gave it to a co-worker so he could do more testing.  Apparently I'm never getting it back again.  :-)  So how do I get that Playbook out of my Appworld?  It always appears under available devices and I don't want it there any more.  Because more importantly I want all the associated PlayBook apps gone from "My World".  I only have a Torch now so I don't want to see any PlayBook apps any more.  It's cluttering up my list and complicates things when I'm using AppWorld in my web browser with my device connected to the computer. 


Going one level even deeper, how do I remove previously downloaded apps from my list permanently?  I shouldn't have to be clicking through 4 pages of apps when I don't care about half of them any more.  I understand my purchases are being protected by ensuring that I can download the app again if I choose.  But really, I don't choose.  I want some of these apps gone forever.  Is that possible?

I have read that in an upcoming version that is currently in beta test phase, you are able to hide your uninstalled apps from My World.
