A geek with a DIY passion and a 3D printer has created a iPhone case as dangerous as it is cool. The thing has the handle of a revolver certain to get you shot whether you use it in front of a cop.

An analyst claimed late last week that the iPhone would be landing at Verizon in November. We additionally heard last week that Sprint would be getting the device in September. I will believe it when I see it.
