You vs. Your Cat. Game On!

If you haven't seen the dozens of videos on YouTube of pets playing with their owners iPad, both in humor and to show the durability of the screen, companies are joining in to bring you games for you and your pet to play. Such as Friskies. The cat food company.
No surprise there. They demoed it at SXSW festival in Austin. It's a simple game. You throw a digital piece of food (aka a Friskies can!) on the pad and your cat needs to swat it before it reaches the goal.
Cute, maybe. Definately a marketing ploy. I would not be surprised to see Puppy Chow, Purina, and the other companies jump in on this. What a great way to get owneres involved in their pets and technology, with the message that they should buy more crap for their pets. Just like us humans.
