Imagine a future when you can tell your coffee machine to make coffee with the sound of your voice or tell the lights to switch on in any room of your house just by talking.

That kind of automation once required hundreds of dollars of investment in new gear, but Google is bringing that future to everyone.

The recent release of the tech company’s first open source hardware project is opening doors for ‘makers’ the world over looking to create their own voice assistants, just like Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri. Google’s Voice Kit comprises a natural language recognizer powered by a Raspberry Pi that can be paired with the Google Assistant to create your own personal Amazon Echo, all in the size of a small cube.

Never Miss an Email Again: Gmail Notification Extension for GNOME Shell by http://bit.ly/2qvWajl

Looking for an easy way to get Gmail notifications on the GNOME desktop? Well, you needn’t look any further.

The Gmail Message Tray GNOME Extension does exactly what you want: shows you notifications of emails in the GNOME message tray (aka ‘notification centre’ aka ‘date/time indicator’).

One of the main reasons I use a desktop email client such as Thunderbird or Geary is the ability to receive notifications on the desktop as and when new email arrives.

Firefox 54: more multi-process content processes by https://is.gd/7xLhyI

firefox-multiple-content-processes

Mozilla plans to increase the number of content processes of Firefox’s multi-process architecture to four (from one) with the release of Firefox 54.

Some Firefox installations are still not eligible for Firefox’s multi-process architecture. This includes systems with accessibility tools or settings enabled. Multiple processes won’t be enabled for users with extensions either, regardless of whether those are legacy add-ons, or WebExtensions.

Mozilla ran its memory test again to determine the right number of content processes. An increase in the number of content processes for the browser always goes along with an increase in memory usage.

Hands On With Google And Microsoft Authenticator Apps by https://is.gd/74oK1a

One of the primary vehicles used by bad guys to access our systems is stealing log-in credentials in order to impersonate real users. All the security processes and tools in the world are circumvented when someone has your username and password.

That’s where two-factor authentication (2FA) comes into play. 2FA works by adding another authentication challenge to the equation. It’s not just about what you know – your password, it’s also about something you have. That’s where the authenticator apps from Microsoft and Google come into play.
