NBA point guard Deron Williams just signed a $100 million contract with the Brooklyn Nets — with his finger.

That’s because he did it on an iPad. Gone are the days of obscenely thick paper contracts. Everything’s digital, touch sensitive and tactile now.

Below is Williams’ tweet showing him inking (figuratively speaking) his eight-figure deal.

Officially a Brooklyn Net! Signed my contract on an iPad Just thank God for this wonderful Opportunity #HelloBrooklyn — Deron Williams (@DeronWilliams) July 11, 2012

We’ve already seen how the iPad’s transforming the way we conduct businesses. But this just elevated the stakes.
