There are so many people on Google at the moment looking for “iPhone 4G Recall” – Did you search for iPhone 4G Recall or Apple Recalling iPhone 4G before getting to this site?
If you did, please don’t be worried as Apple are not doing an iPhone 4G Recall. The whole recall alarm was sparked by a fake Twitter account with username “CEOSteveJobs”. The tweet read “We may have to recall the new iPhone. This, I did not expect.”. So many people thought this Twitter account was real and was owned by Steve Jobs – I did too (I recently stopped following CEOSteveJobs when I found out this was a parody account)
The iPhone 4G was released on June 24 and will stay released – no recall pending. There are small theething problems as with all pieces of technolofy, mainly Reception issues and activation issues but iPhone 4G is due for a minor software update before the year is out according to some sources which might help with the initial issues.
The real Steve Jobs responded to the fake Twitter post and also to the iPhone 4G complaints and advised users to avoid holding the iPhone in a way that blocks the antenna. “Avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases,”.
There is now evidence, perhaps from the FIFA camp, (who knows) that the ball did not cross the line during the German match.
As you can see from the photo below, taken from the goal line video, the ball was not fully over the line as the shot came in and beat the keeper.
Really at this stage FIFA need to introduce video footage into games – if they don’t they are stupid and behind the times.
Apart from Englands disallowed goal, In the Mexico game the first goal was clearly offside again, everyone could see it was offside.
Who needs to mention the cheating which was clearly visible on the Thierry Henry “Hand of Frog” incident.
FIFA – Get the finger out and don’t let this crap continue!
With the last of the World Group Matches today there are some matches which could have the possibility of an upset.
North Korea v Ivory Coast
No chance of an upset here, I can’t see North Korea doing anything only losing.
Ivory Coast need a good few goals to stand a chance of qualifying.
I think Ivory Coast should win this one by 3 or 4 clear goals.
Portugal v Brazil
This is where we might see an upset – Brazil looked good in the past few matches and if they take Portugal lightly I think it could end a draw or Portugal might even edge it.
I’m Sitting on the fence ; 1-1 draw.
Chile v Spain
Spain, favorites at the start of the World Cup, need to win and I think should win if they get on top of their game.
Chile 0 – Spain 2 (or 3)
Switzerland v Honduras
Switzerland need to win to stand a chance. They could put a few past Honduras and if they win by 2 more goals than Spain, they will qualify even if Spain win.
Switzerland 3 – 0 Honduras
Just a quick post today on what I think will happen today in the World Cup Matches.
Looking at yesterdays post, it wasn’t too far off the mark (scores not 100%) but the Win Lose Draw was 3 out of 4. I didn’t think Australia would have won yesterday. Great to see USA topping the group also – England v Germany should be a cracker on Sunday and on last nights performace England have to do a lot better to get past Germany (great goal from Worzel last night – he had his scoring face on last night!)
Todays World Cup match predictions are ….
Paraguay v New Zealand
Would love to see New Zealand win this one and that might just happen. Most probable outcome is a draw or 1 goal.
Putting neck on Line I think New Zealand to win 1-0.
Slovakia v Italy
Easy … Italy 2-0 (Unless they do a France, have a big fight and can’t play for sugar!)
Cameroon v Netherlands
Netherlands are through but I think they will keep the pressure on – probably a Holland win 2-0.
Denmark v Japan
Tough call – Both have weaknesses that the other can exploit … Both need to win to be certain of qualification!
Maybe Denmark to win 1-0.
Slovenia v England is the big match today. England must win and they probably will have enough to get past Slovenia, if they don’t then heads will roll as they should be up for this game, with all the hype and the past performances being highlighted within the camp. If they are ready, then they could do well today – if not, they may just scrape past Slovenia.
USA v Algeria could have an impact on England should England draw with Slovenia. USA look good so far and seem to have a good game plan. This could be another USA draw but if they keep the concentration and get an early goal they could win by a goal or two.
Australia v Serbia is a tough one to call; Australia have to bounce back after the German Hammering, but need to win today, Serbia might be too much for them. One goal will probably decide this game, most probably in Serbias favour.
Ghana v Germany is (or should be) a no brainer. Germany should have no problem in winning this game, unless they do a France and just fall apart which is 100/1 unlikely. Could be 3 or 4 in this one.
Score Predictions for todays games:
– Slovenia 0 – 2 England
– USA 1 – 0 Algeria
– Australia 0 – 1 Serbia
– Ghana 0 – 3 Germany
