The recognition systems improves the more people use them, but they are closed systems so no one other than Apple, Amazon, or Google.
The project named Project Common Voice website includes an option to donate your voice.
If you opt to do so, a number of sentences will be popped up in your web browser for you to say. Once recorded, you can play them back to check they are acceptable before submitting them to help the voice recognition engine learn.

Fedora 26 server 64bit - tested VM.

I install Fedora 26 into simple way with the Netinstall Image (64-bit 484MB ) from here.
I used the last VirtualBox to test this Fedora 26 net image.
It took some time because the hardware used is without the dedicated video card and an I5 processor. The basic idea of this test was to see how to install it.
It's interesting to watch: the number of packages installed per time unit, the startup steps for the base installation and the work environment.
The other steps are more complex because it matters what you want to do with this linux. It depends on how much you want to adapt it to your hardware machine or whether you will make it a web server, ftp, sftp or a graphics rendering or video rendering station.
The total installation time in VirtualBox was one hour and seven minutes. The resulting video was modified by changing the number of frames for a faster viewing, (from 72 to 172).
The reason was the first steps to install Fedora not to set a specific linux server.
I use linux command under root account to install and set Fedora 26:
#dnf update 
#dnf upgrade 
#dnf grouplist 
#dnf grouplist -v
#dnf install @cinnamon-desktop
#dnf -y group install "Fedora Workstation"
#dnf install setroubleshoot
#sestatus
#sestatus -v
#getenforce
#dnf install clamtk
#echo "exec /usr/bin/cinnamon-session" >> ~/.xinitrc
#startx
Let's see the record video of this test install :

News: Send files on WhatsApp.

The WhatsApp software lets users share multimedia content, but you can't send files directly to other users.
If you wanted to send unsupported file formats like .apk, .zip etc, you had to rename the file to a supported file format.
For example if you wanted to send the apk for your favorite app, you’d rename it such that it ends with .txt. I tested with Whatsapp™ For PC extension - Opera add-ons and works great.
I send a document file (.doc) with an approximate size of 5 Mb, without any interruption of the connection and a fluid transfer to the application.

Note:

You need to know also, there’s a limit of 100 MB to any attachment.
The executable file is not allowed ( like: .exe, .dll).
Meanwhile, messaging app Telegram is still leading the pack when it comes to file size restrictions — it has supported 1.5 GB files since its launch.

Best password management tool.

This suite of tools come with many features free and one good premium option.
The Password Tote tools provides secure password management through software and services on multiple platforms and work very well with software downloads for Windows, Mac OS X, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Android.
You can download this from downloads page.

Features OutlineFreePremium
Website Access

Mobile Software
Password Sharing
YubiKey Support
PriceFree$2.99 a month or 2 Years at a 16% savings
DescriptionThis will allow you to use the website version completely free. It also gives you access to fill your passwords from the browser extensions. It does not provide access to the desktop software or mobile phone software.Premium gives you access to your passwords from all versions of Password Tote, including the desktop software and mobile phone versions.

Synchronization between browser extensions and utilities is fast and does not confuse the user in navigation. Importing files is fast for the csv file dedicated to dozens of passwords.
A very good aspect was the compromise solution for custom import with a generic csv file.
The utility generates this file and you can fill it with the necessary login data for your web sites.
The other csv import options did not work for me, I guess the problems are incompatible with the other files exported by the dedicated software.
I used it with YubiKey and it worked very well. It's the only utility that allowed me to connect with YubiKey, the other utilities demand a premium version.

How to enable YubiKeys and password tote.
  • First log in to your Password Tote account. 
  • Click Account, then Manage YubiKeys. You will arrive at the YubiKey Management page. 
  • Click Add YubiKey to register your YubiKey with your Password Tote account. 
  • Fill in the required details. If successful, your YubiKey will be displayed in the list as shown in the screen shot below.
