    How awesome is that?! Gratz man.

    Just keeps getting weirder!

    Today I got this email:
    Hi RobA.

    My name is XXXXXXXXXXXX and I'm a single iPhone developer from Sweden.
    I'm a big fan of your PD Modern Compass Rose. So much in fact that I've made a small iPhone compass app using it.

    Today Apple called me and asked if they can use my app in a commercial, so I thought that you might be interested in making your name visible in some way. It's not 100% sure yet it will happen.
    I'm not receiving any money for this, just free publicity for my app. I have no idea what the commercial will look like, just that my app will be visible in it.

    Even though it's a public domain image, I want you to benefit from this as a designer.

    ...

    Looking forward to hear from you!

    Huh!

    Dude!! Is this site just the best or what! That rocks how such a simple thing as a mapping challenge can turn into a globally recognized object. Congrats!

    This is really amazing actually. I'm continually floored by how far-reaching this site is becoming.
