Firmware 1.1.3 for the iPhone and iPod Touch adds a feature called Web Clips. Basically, a Web Clip is a bookmark of a web page placed on the home screen of the iPod/iPhone, so that you can just touch an icon on the home screen and be taken directly to the webpage, as opposed to having to open the Safari browser and browse through the bookmarks to find the site you want.

So, can FH/DN create its own Web Clip icon for display on the iPod/iPhone home screen? As explained here (http://www.tuaw.com/2008/01/22/wheres-the-webclip-icon/), the icon must be a 57x57 PNG named apple-touch-icon.png, and must be placed in the root of the server's web content directory. The iPod/iPhone will automatically round the icon's corners and apply a kind of glossy effect to the icon when placed on the home screen.

Any chance of this happening? I imagine it would take 10 minutes, 8 of those minutes spent in Photoshop.

Maybe there is too much going on right now for the admins with keeping the site up and all. But I think it is a good idea.
