Pull to Refresh Share

I really like how Luke Wroblewski has made use of the new space created in the 'Pull to Refresh' feature of touch phones. Opening up this area for brand awareness or to increase visual identity is such a novel and impressive adaptation of technology. I can see this one catching on really quickly. www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?1643
