You’ll appreciate this. *updated with good picture

New picture added. Now you can actually see it!

If you have an iPhone.

As of the iPhone’s 1.1.3 firmware, one can make home screen shortcuts to websites. Pretty neat. The icons for these shortcuts are by default just a super tiny version of the page at the moment you make the shortcut. Lots of cool sites, like Gizmodo, BBC News, Woot, and Boing Boing have created super cute favicons for the iPhone. Shambot however, did not.

Until now!

Old on the left, New on the right.

Let’s hear it for Joel Gillman.

Thanks to Joel, now we’ve got a little bit of flair for the thousands of iPhone owners who no doubt have Shambot on their home screens.
And here’s an update, with a much better picture. You can see the old icon the let of the new one!

Here we go... You can see the old icon, and the updated one.

    As for the 2nd, I’ve got a full work week, but I’m sure we could work something out. Maybe dinner at Zoey’s Pizza or something!
