Cannot connect to iTunes Store: THE SOLUTION

Sometimes you cannot install/update apps anymore and you get the error "Cannot connect to iTunes Store". There's a very simple solution for to this annoying problem.
Go to Settings > General > Restrictions.
Enable restrictions. Wait 5 seconds. Disable restrictions.
It should now work!
If this doesn't work those are other things you should try.
Alternative #1
Reset your network settings
Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings
and then restart your device.
Alternative #2
Go to Settings > Wifi > {YourWiFiNetwork}
Press on the blue arrow and choose Forget this Network
Restart your device and retry.
Alternative #3
Uninstall and then reinstall iBooks.
Alternative #4
Make sure date and time are correct.
Go to Settings > General > Date & Time.
If the option exists, turn off Set Automatically.
Verify the time zone and time are correct. If not, adjust them.
If everything was correct and the option exists, turn on Set Automatically.
Alternative #5
If your device is jailbroken delete the file /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist
And then restart your device.

How to browse a Page/Website that No Longer Exists or Unavailable by Google Cache

Some time our preferred websites are unavailable or are closed and we can’t access to their important information, but not all is lost: we can use the cache of Google!!

In fact, Google caches the most used pages in order to speed the searches and this cache remains many week in the servers.

There are many different ways to view the cached pages, but I report the most useful:

1. If you have the exact link of the page in the website, you can open this link and click on “Access a cached copy of …” .


Alternately you can add “cache:” before the link (Ex: cache:www.linkstreaming.com/streaming-flash-forward‏.html)


2. If you don’t have the exact link in the website, you can do a Google Search like this: “nameOfSite nameOfContents”. So, Google will search in our website a page with the contents those we need. The result will be a page like this:

Capture.2PNG Now you can open the result clicking on “Cached”.

Finally, if you use Firefox there is a extension ErrorZilla to view the Google’s cached version of every pages but, personally, I prefer the others two methods.


All comments are welcome.

Pwn2Own: game over for Apple

As usual Apple was crushed in the Pwn2Own, a computer security contest.

This year Cupertino didn't had to suffer long before getting powned: it took the attackers just 5 minutes to defeat iPhone OS defenses and Mac OS X lasted even less, the attacker was able to gain access to a remote shell in under 1 minute.

In both the case the attack exploited Safari flaws. That's why I use Chrome to browse the internet on Mac OS X and why I'd like to see this this countdown stop as soon as possible.

Of course the attackers already came to the competition with the exploit ready to run, but it is a fact that the Apple's device and computer resulted the most vulnerable.

Download video from MegaVideo and MagaUpload without limits by jDownloader


Today I talk, again, about MegaVideo and MegaUpload. In my previous posts I told about how to watch MegaVideo without 72 minute limit, but often I’m not connect to Internet (e.g. long travel by train or by airplane) and I download video.

Without a Premium Account download video from MegaVideo is not easy and you have find the MegaUpload’s link of video, but often this link is not available.

Recently, a friend told me about jDownloader. JDownloader is a small java application, therefore runnable on Windows, Mac and Linux, very useful. In fact, JDownloader can download file from MegaVideo and MegaUpload automatically without limits and without that you have insert manually the captcha.

How to use JDownloader:

  1. Install and open jDownloader.
  2. Find the MegaVideo or MegaUpload’s link of video that you wont download.
  3. Right click on link, click on “Copy link address” .


Automatically the link is imported in program:


4. Click on play to start to download the file.

The powerful of this application is that you can add many files and it automatically downloads they.

In particular, if you want download file from MegaUpload, the program automatically detects the captcha. So, you can add all files that you want and go out, when you return at home all files will be downloaded.


The program has many other features: management of pause and of resume of downloads, management of premium account,….In other you can use it with many other host sites.

Thanks to the creator of this program and thanks to the power of Java ;-).
