EtherTen / Siri hack by Marcus Schappi featured in the Sydney Morning Herald

Marcus Schappi (from Freetronics reseller Little Bird Electronics) recently demonstrated a neat little hack where he intercepted DNS requests from an Apple iPhone 4S to send Siri queries to a proxy server, allowing it to hand off the event to a Freetronics EtherTen and control house lighting. This morning it was picked up by journalist Ben Grubb and featured in the Sydney Morning Herald!
