An app that lets you connect an iPhone to an iPad and play it as a full-sized ukulele, because there's nothing rich people with an iPhone AND an iPad love more than singing tropically-influenced Elvis covers.

I wonder why they didn't call it "Fukulele?"

A Smartphone Plays the Piano

We already know that Siri can rap, but its musical talents don't end there. In this video, Craig Knudsen shows how he hacked Siri to play the piano. His iPhone is stocked with MIDI song files which, when prompted by Siri, are sent wirelessly to a Yamaha Disklavier, a piano able to receive MIDI commands.

As a neat touch, when you say "If you can play it for her, you can play it for me. Play it again, Siri," Siri will play the iconic Casablanca piece "As Time Goes By," so you can have both hands free to drink your gin and moon over your bittersweet memories of that one time you were in Paris.
