Question of the day

Our last question asked: News media have just picked up on the fact that a certain voice command will trigger the iPhone's Siri to do what? That would be beatboxing -- although The Verge asserts it isn't very good!

Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to get that right. Honorable mentions go out to these wonderful people for also answering correctly: Carrie GrayKen WalkerPaul SnyderCarissa Marie RyanFabiola CamachoMaureen MacGregorTim Farnsworth (who adds "With the help of @april_brady's iPhone, there's an a cappella group in the office"), Francesca DeAnda and Ron Casalotti (who adds "not going to pussyfoot around this, 'worlds worst beatbox' (cats and boots)?"). Shout out to Mark Gibbs for guessing "'Hey Siri' will cause Siri to wake up and listen for a command ... which she still won't understand."

As for today's question, here it is, in honor of today's loss: The iconic actor Alan Rickman's last official "work" was a short film with an altruistic angle that befitted his philanthropic nature. What was it?
