Quick Consensus

Apple's iPad platform may or my not yet include the technology disclosed in Patent #7,653,883. If it does then the product could be the ideal device to act as a proxy for signed documents in everyday transactions. For example, signing a contract. The signee first reads the document by interacting (and therefore touching the screen) to run pages, scroll etc. These gestures are recorded along with finger geometry and speed to use as an identification protocol. At the end of the document the signee acknowledges that he/she has read and understood the document and then does the signing gesture by signing with a finger or stylus (wherein he/she is positively identified). the iPad or other device encrypts the message and sends it to the cloud for secure storage and access by appropriate interested parties.

The above is not fiction as in other blog entries here, it is an invention public disclosure.
