Sylvester Cann of Seattle might be the owner of the most powerful iPad out there!

No, it ain’t got a better processor and nor did he get it overclocked to insane speeds. He found a different way to boast about that claim – and believe it or not, he is actually being taken seriously!

So how did Sylsvester do it?  Well, all he did was to get his iPad signed by none other than US President, Barack Obama. This happened at a rally in Seattle, WA at the University of Washington.

While most of the people assembled there used the standard ways to greet the President, Sylvester stood right there holding his iPad with a sign that read;

“Mr. President, Sign my iPad”.

The request was duly honored by Obama who looked sort of bewildered initially seeing something very unusual as this.

Cann narrates his experience:

“At a rally in Seattle at the University of Washington, the President signed his autograph on my iPad using the Adobe Ideas app.

Generally, the President doesn't sign autographs along the ropeline because pens can be used as a weapon, so I thought I would try to hand him my iPad with a message on it saying, "Mr. President, sign my iPad".

He looked at it for a second and then used his left hand to sign.

It was kinda funny because he looked up and gave me a big grin afterwards as if he thought it was pretty cool too.”

Already an Internet celebrity, he has even made his own website that details how it all happened.
