@kfield: What was the text of that tweet?

Possibly something along the lines of "Feast your eyes on my 3D globes!" (LOL)

it is pretty funny that the thing that got them the most attention is possibly the one thing that shows off the fewest features of the display. The deathstar just happens to be the absolute perfect item to showcase the shape (aside from a globe).
