Rebel 2Phone iPhone 4 case, two lines active at the same time [jailbreak]

Rebel has developed an iPhone 4 case called the 2Phone that has the ability to add an additional line -- and SIM card -- to an iPhone 4. Rebel has been around for a while and offer quite a few unlock solutions for iPhone. What makes 2Phone more interesting is the fact that the two lines can be active together.

The Rebel 2Phone case has a SIM Card slot which accepts normal size SIM Cards. The case has its own battery to power the additional SIM Card and quad band cell radio; it can also power the iPhone 4 should, you run out of juice.

You need to have a jailbroken iPhone 4 to use the case as it requires some software to activate the additional line and calling ability. The case is available now, direct from Rebel but comes at quite a high price of £149.99 ($244). Shipping is currently free worldwide.

Take a look at the video after the break. Would you consider picking one of these up? Let us know in the comments!

Jesse Jackson Jr. claims the iPad is killing American jobs! [video]

Jesse Jackson Jr. is pointing the finger firmly in the direction of Apple and Steve Jobs, claiming they are responsible for killing American jobs.

It's simple: Because everyone can download books and newspapers, everyone who works at bookstores (he notes Borders going out of business) or the publishing industry, or for textbooks, will lose their jobs to the people making iPads in China.

It seems Jesse Jackson Jr. hasn’t taken into account the amount of jobs Apple has created in many other business areas. Take a look at the video after the break. Then make sure you pop back here and let us know what you think in the comments!

White iPhone 4 landing April 26?

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/styles/400w400h/public/images/stories/2010/12/white-iphone-4-ifixdirect-4.jpg" alt="White iPhone 4 landing April 26?" title=White iPhone 4 landing April 26?" width="266" height="400" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-47985" />

iPhoneItalia claims the long-delayed white iPhone 4 will finally start shipping on April 26. We've heard "this spring" confirmed by Apple multiple times, and recently heard it was "weeks" away, but if this date is accurate, we'll finally -- finally -- see the white iPhone 4 by month's end.

...Or not. Personally I'll expect it only when it hits Apple.com. How about you?

Adobe to adopt HTTP Live Streaming for Flash Media Server

Adobe is adding support for Apple's HTTP Live Streaming technology to Adobe Flash Media Server, which means live web video using that platform will soon be compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Currently this type of live video is only available via Flash plugin, which is still inching its way towards mobile, and which Apple is still not interested in for their devices.

By offering HTTP Live Streaming on the server side, no Flash plugin (or any other type of plugin) is required for iOS -- it just detects Safari or the embedded web view and serves the supported H.264 format. (Which sounds similar to what Microsoft did for SilverLight video almost a year and a half ago.)
