Super-cool Titanium iPhone re-news: Engadget vs.Gizmodo fight

When an Engadget reader Martin Schrotz posted cool images supposedly representing a custom back cover modification for his iPhone 3GS, Gizmodo jumped on the opportunity to publicly bash Engadget for failing to realize it was a fake.

According to Engadget, Schrotz crafted his modification out of a single piece of wested titanium, highly durable and ultra-light material that Apple used in the past for the enclosure of its PowerBook G4 Titanium notebook. Schrotz originally wrote in a forum post at Modmyi that he himself designed the mod in a CAD software because the plasticky appearance of his iPhone 3GS itched him enough to engineer a much more sturdier and way more pleasing casing.

Engadget and Gizmodo are no strangers to rapid fire exchanges over scoops and exclusives. The two publications have been engaged in a never-ending (albeit good-natured) fight over both the tech readership and crown of the most credible tech publication on the web since 2002, when Nick Denton’s Gawker Media launched Gizmodo as an all-encompassing tech blog. Soon thereafter, Weblogs, Inc. hired Gizmodo’s original editor Peter Rojas, tasking him to launch a rival publication that would become Engadget.
