Apple Patent Tips System for Autographing E-Books

“Though e-books are all the rage, they still lack one essential component: a place for the author’s John Hancock. But Apple may have a solution, according to a recent patent application. The application, published today by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), allows for “embedding an autograph in an electronic book.” That is, you can slide your iPad in front of your favorite author at their next book signing, and walk away with a souvenir.” (via PCMag.com)
