Road warriors, come out and play: Tower taps into Kiwis' competitive streak with SmartDriver Battle

Until the driverless car finally arrives to take over from us, we're stuck with humans behind the wheel.

Tower Insurance launched its SmartDriver app last year and offered up to 20 percent off premiums for safer drivers. Now, via its new agency Barnes Catmur & Friends, it's drawing attention to the app and its benefits by asking people to take part in a SmartDriver Battle.

You're dreamin': Sleepyhead, Slumberzone and Sealy's attempts to sell sleep

No doubt the bed makers were happy to see Arianna Huffington extolling the virtues of sleep, lambasting the burn-out culture of the corporate world and promoting the idea of nap rooms at work during her recent visit to New Zealand.

And it's backing itself once again, offering a $25 voucher to all passengers if a domestic flight during the next eight days arrives more than ten minutes later than scheduled.
