Barack Obama Signs iPad; Meets With Steve Jobs

The POTUS, Barack Obama, often makes public appearances to greet the citizens. People often go crazy and confess their love to the leader of the USA, seeking handshakes, photographs and autographs.

This one man, Sylvester Cann, wanted a new type of autograph – made from Obama's finger to his iPad.

 

And this is what he ended up with:

This is what Cann told TechCrunch about the event:

At a rally in Seattle, WA at the University of Washington, the President used the touchscreen on my iPad to give me his autograph. Secret service was leery about the idea, but they warmed up to the idea and the President thought it was cool.He looked slightly surprised, but proceeded to use his finger to scribble on the iPad using the Adobe Ideas app.I have a video of the event as well. This HAS to be the first time an iPad has received a Presidential autograph.

In somewhat related news, Obama stopped by the Bay Area last week to meet with those in the technology sector. The Mercury News reports that Obama met with Apple CEO Steve Jobs at the Westin Hotel in San Francisco for around 45 minutes. The two supposedly discussed technology, education and job creation.

Obama also spoke at a $30,400 per plate fundraiser at Google executive Marissa Mayer home.

    They'd have to pay me $30,400 to have dinner with him, not the reverse. Then again, our government doesn't have the money anymore.

    I'm not sure how this is news, though. Why wouldn't he sign it? I'm surprised Jobs would meet Obama though. Most business leaders prefer conservative leaders.

    wasabiman123Jesus, our president is too retarded as to not encourage actual technological advancement for the US by supporting a company that still uses core 2 duos in their labbies...I swear I need to move to japan one of these days...
    I think he has other things to worry about than what processor Apple uses in their computers. Could be wrong.

    @wasabiman123 good riddance, you and the rest of the japanophiles GTFO

    This signature looks like a toddler did it compared to the others I've seen.

    Wonder if any of these ravenous tools will even vote in the midterms.

    Wow, that's gotta be a record. Not even past the first post and somebody has stood up on the political soap-box. Just don't slip and break your neck.
