Despite the fact that Siri’s guts are in a billion dollar data facility in North Carolina somewhere, the iPhone 4S can actually be used to voice control an old Mac 512K.

The process is a little convoluted, but essentially, because a Mac’s email program can run AppleScript according to the text of received mails, it’s not too hard to use Siri to drive your vintage Mac.

Terribly neat. Now if someone could just figure out how to let me use Siri to control my Apple TV when I lose the remote between the cushions.
