A pair of domestic animals put Apple’s latest creation to the test

After baby meets iPad come the inevitable dog and cat videos.

The first, featuring Eric Rautio’s cat Iggy (3 million YouTube hits and counting), is the most interesting, especially when Iggy starts fiddling around with Smule’s Magic Piano. You never know when you start playing Magic Piano duets with strangers in cyberspace who’s banging on the other keyboard.

Will Smith’s Corgi Chloe (just under 1 million hits) isn’t quite as much fun, perhaps because, like so many Apple (AAPL) skeptics, she doesn’t see the use case.

The videos, via Geek System, are available on YouTube here and here — and pasted below.
