Confessions of a scooped journalist

by Giles Turnbull

I won’t deny that I was a little miffed a couple of weeks ago, when the esteemed writers at both TUAW and Gizmodo scooped me on the story I’d been following up just a week or so previously; that of Peter Green, talented Mac modder.

I went to see Peter at his home, about 40 minutes drive from mine, at the end of October. A month before that, in late September, I’d stumbled upon his Mk II modded Mac mini and emailed him about it; he replied saying:

I can do better than that! I’ve just completed the MMP MkIII - tablet edition!! I’ve only finished it the last few days, so I’d be looking to getting out into the world soon anyway - so your timing is pretty good here :-)

Well, I couldn’t resist. The result of our all-too-brief tour of Peter’s den/studio/office/workshop is now live on Mac Devcenter: Peter Green’s Modded Macs.

Anyway, I hope you find the article interesting and the video snippets worth watching. If you’re really lucky, I’ll post the out-takes here one day…
