iTunes could not connect to iphone or ipad because the device timed out

Earlier this morning I tried connecting my iphone to my windows PC but I keep getting this message “iTunes could not connect to iphone insert device name because the device timed out”. I tried restarting my phone, restarting the pc and it still didn’t work. Luckily, I was able to find this post. The solution was:

Hard reset your iphone or ipad!

To do this just press the Lock and Home button for a couple of seconds until the screen goes dark and wait for it to boot up.

It worked for me so I hope it works for you too!

Subliminal installation error on OSX

I was trying to install Subliminal on my macbook but encountered an error. The error was:

“error: Installed distribution six 1.4.1 conflicts with requirement six>=1.5”

To fix this I uninstalled six 1.4.1 by entering this on the command line:

“pip uninstall six”

then I tried installing the subliminal app again by entering:

“sudo python setup.py install”

then it was installed successfully!

OSX Yosemite, slow trackpad.

On OSX Yosemite, If you are using a trackpad with Tap to click (tap with one finger) enabled and your mac is slowing down requiring you to double tap or actually press the trackpad. Try turning on the Reduce Transparency option.

To turn it on, open up System Preferences > Accessibility > Vision > Display.
