Video: Cat Vs. iPad

Eric Rautio's cat Iggy goes paws-on with the iPad and discovers he loves the Noby Noby Boy app almost as much as we do. Time to add an entire new species to the list of who Noby is for? [via TPHD]


    1. what? you don’t remember how long cory’s article was repped up top? what with the upside jobs holding an iPad image and all…

    2. It’s obvious that the cat is an iPad hater. True cat owners will recognize Iggy’s paw action is that same instinctive action used in burying waste in the litter box. Thus, Iggy, symbolically, is making the statement that he thinks the iPad is a piece of cat poopie.

    3. Oh my god…. can’t we all just enjoy a cat doing something amusing? I hate Jobs’ little power games as well, but this is friggin’ awesome!

      Just enjoy it and shut yer cake hol.

  1. not warner crocker’s cat, it is mine :/

    i even e-mailed this to the bb tip line. i guess random blog posts get precedence!

    1. Woop — sorry about that! Duly edited!

      @ChrisGiarmo: how much do I want to live in a world where Steve Jobs calls me up to say “I’ve got a hundred bucks and a YouTube of a cat: you know what to do.”

    1. It doesn’t use its claws when it plays with the screen, my cat does the same with my Ipod during i’m watching videos, there’s no danger !

  2. My favourite part is when the cat looks at the camera with that “Stop making me do this…can I go yet?” expression.

  3. The iTunes store has a free App called “Cat Game” that is a game for cats, as you would expect. It is a laser pointer on a floor background (or other background) for the cat to tap. Turn it on, give to cat, watch! It is too funny.

  4. I’m considering buying an iPad just to piss off all of the people b****ing and moaning about the iPad and the iPad posts on BB.

  5. I loved the little look up to the camera. “You made it boring, bring back the green snake.”

    @1, 3: Your diatribe is boring and contemptuous. You may not touch my monkey.

    Hey, buy 4 of them. That will REALLY piss us off!!!

    1. Break it in half, in a postmodern statement about technology and the destruction of the natural world. We’ll just think it’s angry at its clumsy, non-human hands, though, so the message won’t get through.

  7. I cant wait for the time, when technology advances to the point when we can increase cats intelligence to human level, I’d love to talk to cats :)

  8. This cat was totally going to be a maker or a software engineer, but now? No more.

    Look at the evil the iPad hath wrought. JUST LOOK AT IT!

    1. That is what the look to the camera meant! “Where the f*** is the C compiler??”

      (or, to put it in kitteh, “I can haz C++?”)

  9. Pah! Kittens these days! Back when I was a youngin’ our yarn was made of thread! THREAD y’hear?!

  10. Very cute, but be careful — I’ve seen that scratching/digging motion before. In conjunction with a litterbox.

  11. Is that cat not SCRATCHING that thing???? Kind of expensive to become a cat toy – cute vid, though.

  12. Hmm. I think I need to upload the video of my parrot playing “Blowfish” on my iTouch. He seems to have a better grasp of the game strategy than this cat.

  13. Does anyone else see the danger of ipad fail with a pawing cat and cup of coffee an inch away from the machine?

  14. Clearly there is a market for apps for cats. Imagine say a big bug that walks around slowly. If you tap near it, it runs away. Tap on it, and it’s “pinned” for a bit and wiggles. As soon as you let go, it runs away again.

    Also as perhaps eluded to above by another poster, there is also a need for a “My cat rates your app” website.

  15. Is it insured for cat scratches on the screen?

    Give the cat an iPhone, then it can ring and torment the dog.

  16. My cat does the same thing when I show him YouTube videos of little animals. My netbook casing has permanent scratches from when he dug in his fangs, to try to get at the birds he thought were ‘inside’ the computer.

  17. My stupid owner thinks thinks I am so cute, but I’m really just trying to cover up after iPooed.
