Now you can have the ultimate personalized font – your own handwriting. Formula Solutions, from Ilford, UK, has released Personal Font so your typed letters will print out as though you had taken the trouble to write them by hand. It may only be a 140 pound (about $200) package – but it could have a mighty effect as software has a strange habit of not always being used for the purpose intended. No longer can graphologists appear in court to testify that the accused wrote the incriminating letter when the defense can argue that their client’s writing was impersonated by a machine. People wishing to make a fortune out of gullible Sunday papers by offering Hitler’s secret diaries can now produce the documents in the dictator’s handwriting. And for those intent on an early retirement, all you need is a copy of Bill Gates or Larry Ellison’s signature and a chequebook.
