Brooklyn Nets' Deron Williams signs five-year, $98 million contract on an iPad

People are signing near-$100 million contracts on iPads

But, there are now people signing near-$100 million contracts with their fingers, on an iPad. NBA team Brooklyn Nets' latest player, Deron Williams signed his new five-year, $98 million contract on an iPad using the SignNow app. Yes, $98 million, using his finger, on an iPad.

 

Williams' took to Twitter to capture the moment:
