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.

Selfishness Set to Music

The collection of self-centered brats who were livid about not getting an iPhone for Christmas has creeped from the Twitter feed into our hearts (specifically the parts of our hearts that like to hate things). It's been so popular, in fact, that musician/comedian Jonathan Mann decided to set their tweets to music. If music be the food of laughter and/or hate, play on.

Video contains language appropriate only for foul-mouthed ingrates.

Etsy seller Will Rockwell made this "audio amplifier" from a trumpet. There's no electronics or circuitry - the acoustics of the victrola amplifies the iPhone's music on its own.

Check Out Katy Perry's New Single, "Roar"

'Roar' is the first single from the anticipated release of Perry's fourth album, "Prism". In this newest endeavor, Katy is shedding her sugary, outlandish persona and adopting something darker. 'Roar' does have the twitter-verse in a tizzy due to it's resemblance to Sara Bareilles' new song Brave.

Re-defining yourself isn't easy, good luck Katy.
