Cool signaturs on the iPad, President Obama, Michael Blake, Soeren Kjaergaard, Vijay Ayer ....

I was exited to see our President sign an iPad. I have asked the jazz musicians I have painted on the iPad to sign their images. (Well, not all of them, just he ones I was able to catch after the performance). Here's an image of President Obama scribbling his name on the iPad, and images of some of the signed iPad paintings I have. Note, no pen, pencil or stylus needed, your fingertip works fine!
And the ArtStudio app works just fine too - and all the other drawing and painting apps I would think.

At a recent rally in Seattle, Sylvester Cann had President Obama sign his iPad. Running the Adobe Ideas app on the tablet since "the President doesn't sign autographs along the ropeline because pens can be used as a weapon," Cann was able to get what he claims to be the first Presidential autograph under these conditions.

"Secret service was leery about the idea, but they warmed up to the idea and the President thought it was cool," Cann wrote "He looked slightly surprised, but proceeded to use his finger to scribble on the iPad."

Cann has set up a Google webpage to showcase the signature and a video from the signing as well as to track media mentions of the event. It's named, simply, "I figured, 'Why not ask?'"
