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.
