It might sound a bit technical, but using GoogolPlex is fairly straightforward -- and you can try it today without jailbreaking your phone or downloading anything. After signing up on BetterThanSiri.com, you'll simply open your iPhone's Wi-Fi settings and change your HTTP Proxy settings to Auto with "http://totally.betterthansiri.com" in the URL box.
The Four Loop mentions that third-party app integration won't work until GoogolPlex hits the App Store, but you can try a few demo commands such as "GoogolPlex, tell me a programming joke." The Four Loop has ambitious plans for its Siri hack, as the GoogolPlex concept video shows a user interacting with Nest home electronics, opening specific Spotify songs and unlocking a car door all with voice commands.
Apple will likely beef up Siri for iOS 8, but it looks like GoogolPlex beat it to the punch.
