Late last night I set out with the goal of getting the much talked about Siri Proxy server running on my iMac and iPhone 4S. After a couple of hours of tinkering, I could finally report success.

We’ve all seen the videos, but actually using it yourself is a whole different experience. It’s really amazing what Pete “Plamoni” Lamonica has been able to pull off with Siri Proxy.

What’s even better is that there’s all sorts of plugins available to take advantage of. Check inside as we go hands-on with the Twitter and IMDB plugins for this wonderful Siri enhancer…

And here’s the initial test where I first got Siri Proxy working:

To pull this off, I created an Ubuntu virtual machine using Parallels 7 for Mac OS X Lion. It’s actually a fairly easy setup to pull off with the right instructions.

In no time I was asking Twitter to tweet, and asking IMDB who starred in my favorite films. Siri was definitely up to the task, and I came away mighty impressed.

Now this question remains: Would you like a tutorial that shows how to install Siri Proxy on your virtual machine? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

    Please post a video or how to on how to get this running on a virtual machine

  • Yes Please please please please please please o.0 ? 🙂

  • Yes! show us !

  • tutorial

  • It could be awesome to have more info, I don’t have a iPhone 4s, but I’m so naive to trust in a santa this year or Siri is getting released to all other Devices 😀 I hope to get a video! 😀

  • Tutorial please!!!:)

  • Yes definitely

  • YES!!!!

  • Please PLEASE post a tutorial. I would love to have this ability at home and the “project” of getting it up and running would actually pull me away from CoD for a while 🙂

    The possibilities for this are absolutely endless, and I’m excited to see what anyone else can get working with it also!

  • i’d most certainly like a tutorial! great videos as always Jeff, thanks!

  • yes, this would be great. I think this is the first time i am actaully regretting not having a 4s just so i can use siri proxy. Hopefully it will get ported to the ipad2. A vid would be nice since i have ubuntu running on a laptop, and a virtual ubuntu on a desktop.

    • Also, if you are using windows, you will NOT need a virtual pc client like vmware or virtual pc. Ubuntu can be installed on windows as if it was just a regular program like itunes or google chrome.

  • hahaha there ar so many tuts on web and everybody asking for one 😀

    • Yes, but this will be very straightforward and simple.

  • Question, why did you do it on a virtual machine using Ubuntu? It seems like a lot of unnecessary work when you could just set it up on using Lion. Just curious.

    • Because in my opinion it’s more straight forward on Ubuntu. It’s really just a matter of copying and pasting a few commands. It’s insanely easy to setup, as you will see in a few minutes.

  • yes plz

  • yes of course ,,,,,plz if u can as soon as possible …tknx…

  • if you wont post a tutorial, other blogs will.

  • Doesn’t the iPhone 4s already have Siri?
