Siri Proxy Can Be Used for A T.V. Remote
We've seen Siri doing some crazy things before...
The Siri Proxy has made it possible for Siri to do some crazy things. For example, we can play with our thermostats, start our cars, and now we can use it to tell our television what to play. It seems like the capabilities of Siri are endless. How amazing is it that we can use our iPhone to do just about anything with something that Apple built into the iPhone themselves? Usually to get any kind of awesome functionality that is outside of what Apple intended it for, we need to jailbreak our iDevice. Ironically enough, the iPhone 4S does not have a public jailbreak yet and because of this, hackers are finding their own ways to play around with Siri on the iPhone 4S.
From the video above, a hacker uses the Siri Proxy to play different episodes of television programs such as Mythbusters and Seinfeld. He does this by telling the iPhone to, "Play Mythbusters [insert episode type here]" or by saying, "Play Seinfeld [insert episode type here]." Obviously, if you have downloaded the episode, then Siri will be able to find it and play it. If you have not downloaded it, it will give you a response somewhere along the lines of, "Sorry, couldn't find that."
How would you like it if hackers were able to start our microwaves or stove ovens using only Siri? Wouldn't it be cool if we could cook a meal from the comfort of your couch? What is the need to get up anymore? This is the true
modern American dream.
What kinds of crazy things do you think Siri will be able to do in the future as hackers continue to play around with the Siri Proxy? Share in the comments below!
