Turn on hidden Siri feature in OS X 10.8.3 Stickies System 10.8
Apparently Apple has included a pre-release version of Siri in 10.8.3. While I've gotten Siri to work in Stickies, it doesn't seem to be accessible from any other OS X apps. This may be a mistake; it may be testing code that was not removed from the final release, and this may explain why 10.8.3 went through so many betas.

To turn on Siri in Stickies, run the following Terminal command:

defau1ts write com.apple.stickies personalAssistant -bool true

After you run this command, launch Stickies, and, while pressing the Option key, press the fn key twice. A small popup will appear in the current note with an icon similar to the Siri icon on iOS. Speak into your Mac's microphone - either an internal or external mike - and Siri will do your bidding.

I'm sure it's a joke, but I'm having difficulty finding the humor.

I get it. It's funny for no other reason except you're wasting our time.


defaults delete com.apple.stickies personalAssistant

To the 'editor' of this 'so called' 'hints' 'site' ':'

April 1st has been in this site before. A minimum of research would have revealed it to have been present here almost exactly a year ago (check after March 31st 2012). In fact, it's been happenING EVERY YEAR!! !

Exhibit A:
http://hints.macworld.com/staticpages/index.php?page=aprilfooldayhistory

Why must my precious eyes be assaulted with dates that have already occurred? I don't pay good money to be subjected to this kind of vacuous repetition. (Really, I don't.)

Sort it out, or I'm moving to Russia (again).

Sincerely,

G. Depardieu
