NetNewsWire icon

For the icon for the iPhone version, I wanted to suggest a couple things:

1. It’s NetNewsWire, but it’s just the heart of it, not all the features.

2. It’s an iPhone app.

So I did the simple thing — launched Acorn, cropped the center of the icon, then turned the entire thing an iPhone-ish blue-gray color.
