the iPhone does not present itself to any computer as a block device, so you won't be able to mount it and access the file system. This is among other things a security feature. Depending on what you are trying to change, you might be able to use iTunes for manually uploading music, playlists and I think possibly videos as well. Additionally you can use ...
More likely it is a problem with the OS itself. I just received this message when I had just a few programs open and memory pressure was "green" in Activity Monitor - but my uptime is 106 days. As everyone know - no computer/OS can run forever without a restart although 106 days is not a high number if you compare with mainframes, but for a personal system ...
I found out that there is no more way to upgrade in terms of hardware since the last option would be a new CPU which cannot be replaced in the Macbook. Overclocking the CPU is no option either for safety reasons. However, upgrading Mac OS from Yosemite to El Capitan has greatly increased performance, so I guess I'm good for now.
According to everymac.com your MacBook Pro probably neither supports 16 GB nor PC3-12800 memory modules. There is one exception for the MacBookPro7,1 (MacBook Pro Mid 2010 13") which supports 16 GB. If you happen to have a MacBookPro7,1 get two 8 GB PC3-8500 modules or in all other cases get two 4 GB PC3-8500 modules.
I solved my issue! Click the apple. Click "force quit". Adobe reader updater was running. I force quit it. I also force quit my browsers and relaunched finder. Now, finder is super fast!
You could try AppTamer (not free, trial version available). From the AppTamer website: Some applications, particularly web browsers and older apps, continue running tasks or animating ads even when they're idle. That uses valuable processing (CPU) power, which leaves you with: Less CPU power for the application you're using, Increased heat and ...

If the two different sized RAM modules have the same specifications (e.g. latency), you shouldn't have any issues. The advantages - more memory - outweigh the disadvantages of different sized modules - no interleaving memory.
I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro, formerly with 4GB of RAM. A few months ago, I bought an 8GB stick and made the exact setup you're describing. With the exception of one issue that lasted a few minutes one day (and that I have no proof was even caused by the RAM setup), it's been working perfectly ever since I did the upgrade. So yeah, you should be fine. ...
I'm running VMWare on one now, the highest spec one and it's not usable - epic CPU usage in Windows all the time, currently unzipping a file and it's doing it @ 64KB a second! Disk IO is fast, but the brain is so small the Mac part seems to leave nothing for VMWare.
The core of OS X is not garbage collected; IOKit's libkern C++ Runtime requires developers to manage their own memory. Mac Memory Management From How does memory management work in Mac OS X? Apple documents the lowest levels of the Mach Kernel and the virtual memory subsystem fairly well on the web as part of it's developer documentation. ...
Here's my guess, assuming your Mac has an integrated GPU (eg Intel Iris Graphics). When you have your thesis open in Preview, graphics card memory is used to hold the image ("texture") of the Preview window, and perhaps also some off-screen-but-decoded pages from the thesis. With an integrated graphics card, the video memory is actually (partially?) ...
That's actually not a lot of memory for usernoted, Finder, or Dock. "usernoted" is a known process and is installed with OS X. Do you mind telling how much memory you have, as well as what OS version? Also note that you clicked on the Compressed Memory column, rather than regular memory, which is a more accurate way of showing memory usage. Don't forget to ...
I am having the same Possible memory corruption: pmap_pv_remove way too often. Is it bad RAM which servers avoid by having ECC ram?
It all depends on what type of usage your rMBP will be subjected to. It does help with the SSD and just cutting it off at 8gb(I had a similar setup but with the earlier 15" rMBPs) if you're trying to save some money but make sure you have enough storage on the SSD(you'll run out fast). Not to mention 2011 RAM speeds are significantly slower than today's.
