    Has anyone else noticed that the GOOGLE bookmark icon sets to the google logo weather or not you actually zoom into it. (I am talking about the mobile page the classic page does not follow suit).

    Maybe this will be a way for big name sites to create custom icons for iphone users.

    i noticed this.. but then i didn't think THAT much of it... google works so close with apple and the iphone ...

    But i wonder if they'll announce how they do it and if other websites (like macrumors) will do it..

    From http://developer.apple.com/iphone/devcenter/designingcontent.html

    Create a WebClip Bookmark Icon

    iPhone and iPod touch allow a user to save a WebClip bookmark to your site on their Home Screen.

    To specify a bookmark icon for all pages of a web site, place a PNG image named "apple-touch-icon.png" at the root directory of your web server - similar to the "favicon.ico" for site icons.

    To override the site bookmark icon on a specific web page, insert a <link> element similar to <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/customIcon.png"/> within the <head> element of the page.

    The bookmark icon dimensions should be 57x57 pixels. If the icon is a different size it will be scaled and cropped to fit.

    Safari will automatically composite the icon with the standard "glassy" overlay so it looks like a built-in iPhone or iPod application.

    I set up icons for flightaware.com and macnugget.org tonight. It's much cooler that way. :)

    I made a really lame one for my website and than did the logo for a friends site. Its alot nicer to have the icon instead of a the web clipping. Lets home more and more sites do this.

    Not yet but it's in the timeline. We're holding off to see what the SDK looks like before we decide what direction to go. CIO and CTO are both iPhone users, though, so it's pretty much a given that we'll do something. :)

    Yes me. I am a PC user and need SLOOWWW BIG EASY words to figure this out. Okay, so I am sure one of you guys can translate to english for us :)

    I assume I make a small file on my computer save it somewhere and then like to that or something. It has to be easier then I think

    It took me a week to figure out the ringtones with XP but know that I know it is a snap. I am sure this is the same. Some kind person will chime in any minute now :)

    This is not information you need, then. This is information that can be used by webmasters and website operators to set a custom iPhone/iPod Touch icon for the sites that they run. It's not anything that can be used by iPhone/iPod Touch users directly.

    WebClip Favelet

    Yeah, I created a custom icon for iDecisive as well (I know, no one cares).

    You might care about this favelet I made though. If sites aren't adding apple-touch-icon images fast enough to suit you, you can take matters into your own hands:
