    The video above shows off the silliest (and perhaps funniest) method for activating Siri ever. We will let you decide if this is a clever or crazy way to get your various digital assistants to work together. Perhaps he could have added Cortana to this loop, somehow? :D

    A little clever and a little crazy at the same time, but effective. He must have a lot of free time to set up all of that.

    Am I nuts, or was there no sound on the video? What fun is a video about hacking voice activation in a crazy way without sound?

    There is sound. It's confirmed you're nuts.

    I just played it for a co worker and had sound. It's not loud, but Audible. Maybe your phone is broken?
