With Siri's protocol recently cracked, iOS-savvy hackers and developers are sure to start tinkering with everyone's favorite virtual assistant. And that's exactly what developer Plamoni has done. By using a "very extensible proxy server," Plamoni has enabled Siri to work with his Wi-Fi thermostat. Using his own custom commands and code, the hack appears to be working flawlessly. Although Siri is exclusive to the iPhone 4S, this is still very good news for the future of Siri. Adding Siri integration into third party platforms could be a huge game changer for Apple. Imagine using Siri to preheat your oven, open your garage door, or even set your home's alarm. There is so much potential for Siri if Apple agrees to open its doors to developers allowing them to use Siri with their applications and products. What do you think? Will we be talking to all of our gadgets and appliances in the near future? Let us know in the comments.
