All Blacks did just fine against Scotland which is more than can be said for the Wallabies against England....and the world's biggest sore loser, the Wallabies coach Michael Cheika, did the wild thing again.

All eyes go to the All blacks who must be feeling the pressure as they face a nothing to lose reinvigorated Scotland side that would think nothing of trouncing them while they fumble for the ball like a rat caught in the headlights of a Scottish terrier driving a B-Double truck with racing stripes.  Game on!

Some iphone 5 batteries have been recalled.  You may want to look into it.

My iPhone5 is almost 5 years old and the battery still gets me through the day.  I'm not a heavy user any stretch so that sort of performance is fine for me.  I reckon getting 5 years from a mobile phone is ok.

I think smartphones are a mature technology and are so good already that a lot of the new features strikes me as gimmicky and as such, I don't feel any of these new phones are a compelling purchase.  I mean it's all very well that it has facial recognition and you just look at the phone to unlock it - but some of us, like me, don't lock our phone in the first place.  And on those few occasions when I do, inputting a 4-digit code is hardly a great ordeal!

I'm still happy with my iPhone 5.  It's 5 years old and whole the battery life isn't what it was, it still works perfectly.  I'll stick with it for the time being.
