Obama signs iPad

At a rally in Seattle on Thursday, Sylvester Cann decided, like many, to ask the president for his signature.

Unlike hundreds of other clamoring supporters, Cann asked President Obama to go digital. He asked him to sign his iPad.

Using the Adobe Ideas app, Cann scrawled "Mr. President, sign my iPad" onto his screen.

Obama obliged.

Check out the YouTube video of the electronic signing.
