The hacks of Apple's Siri to use with other programs and purposes are running amok. And if you thought Siri could do better than her new trick to update a home thermostat remotely, here it is. Siri has been hacked to lock and unlock your car doors and trunk, and even start the vehicle.
PC World has more:
Siri will currently respond to commands such as "Vehicle Start", "Vehicle Stop", "Vehicle Pop Trunk" and the slightly more conversational "Start my car", "Lock my car", "Pop my trunk".
Of course this won't work for everyone's car--Brandon's vehicle has Viper SmartStart installed so it can be controlled remotely. Therefore, models without any form of remote controlling won't be able to benefit from the tech. If you can remotely control your car, though, this could in future be good for those who frequently forget their car keys, or perhaps can't reach their keys at the bottom of their bag.

The hack was first performed by Brandon Fiquett. Check out his site for more info on how to get the hack to work.
