Siri, a 512K Mac & Technology Magic

| Cool Stuff Found

Can an ancient 512K Mac and an iPhone 5 work together? Turns out the answer is yes, if you bring Siri into the mix, and Niles Mitchell made a video to proving just that. He used a stock 512K Mac, the Speak app, a little AppleScript with a modern iMac, and iCloud to get folder listings from the old Mac, and even had the 512K use Siri to tell the iMac to shut down. There may not be any practical real world use for this particular tech mash up, but that doesn't stop it from being wonderfully cool.
