Siri Can now Start your Car! [Video]


Right after the launch of iPhone4S, some crazy videos started hitting the internet featuring the most touted feature of iPhone 4S, the Siri voice recognition feature. Many of the hackers are still trying to figure out how to bring the Siri Feature and some getting as close as fooling the Apple servers to get recognized as a iPhone 4S user.

Now a recent video featuring Siri helping out to Start the Car has surfaced over the web,a developer used the proxy server and hooking  it up to his Viper Car system allowing him to turn the car on and off using Siri.This is how he did it.

The “Siri Proxy” plugin I wrote handles interaction with a php script that runs on my web server. The php script, which I developed months ago for personal use, allows me to send commands to my car which has a Viper SmartStart module installed.

Current commands accepted are: “Vehicle Arm”, “Vehicle Disarm”, “Vehicle Start”, “Vehicle Stop”, “Vehicle Pop Trunk”, and “Vehicle Panic”.

Siri is turning out to be quite a tool for the developers who are trying out many things with it,we can expect some more interesting Siri hacks in near future.

Checkout the video in Action:

NFC Based iPhone on the Horizon [Rumor]

Before the release of the iPhone 4S, it was rumored to be featuring the NFC chip which is now one of the most touted features on some leading mobile vendors but it didn’t turned out to be. As a matter of fact many were expecting a newer iPhone with a redesign but it was just a steped up version of the existing iPhone 4.

But according to recent  reports from Digitimes Apple is expected to bring the NFC(near field communication) to the next version of iPhone which is expected to hit the markets in 2012.

As Android, Symbian, BlackBerry and Bada have supported NFC (near field communication) functions and Microsoft and Apple plan to make Windows Phone and iOS support NFC in 2012, the proportion of NFC-enabled smartphones will quickly increase from less than 10% currently to over 50% in two to three years, according to Taiwan-based smartphone makers.

So with the competition getting intense with other biggies in the smartphone business try to get over each other this can very well turn out to be a real deal.
