  • EFTM Best Wearable 2017: Apple Watch Series 3

    Perhaps a sign of how fast the wearable space is moving, in 2014 for our first EFTM Best Awards the winner was the Jawbone Up 24, a fitness tracker that at the time I couldn’t take off – loved it. Fast forward to 2017 and Apple has now won...
  • EFTM Best Grooming 2017: Braun 9-in-1

    As if summer isn’t reason enough to lose the winter coat, we found a single device in 2017 that met our grooming needs entirely. We don’t need to go into specific details here but as blokes we tend to have hair in very many places and they’re not entirely...
  • EFTM Best In-Car Tech 2017: Audi Virtual Dash

    The Audi Virtual Cockpit is the coup de grâce to all other instrument clusters. It turns what the driver sees behind the steering wheel into a stunning display of Google Earth mapping. It also provides for a very practical, user friendly interface. Customisable and unique readouts are available when...
  • EFTM Best Innovation 2017: Apple’s Do Not Disturb While Driving

    This is something that deserved to be recognised with an award from the moment it was announced.  Back in June Tim Cook and his team were announcing new features for the software running on iPhones, and one quick mention went to “Do Not Disturb While Driving”. Having now used...
  • EFTM Best Event 2017: Meatstock

    Australia has been turning out some fantastic events in 2017 and in particular is around the food and beverage industry. We’ve attended so many food and wine shows this year but nothing like this event. Meatstock is a one of a kind. As you approach the gates you can...
  • EFTM Best Internet of Things 2017: Gogogate2 – your garage door opener

    The internet of things isn’t just about being connected, having a WiFi connection. For an item to be a great addition to the Internet of Things it should serve a purpose and do great things. Fitting that bill is the Gogogate2 – a garage door controller that connects to...
  • EFTM Best Drop 2017: Handpicked Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    At EFTM we’re quite fortunate to be able to try multiple wines, beers and spirits throughout the year. We’ve also been through formal industry training to ensure our opinions are valid. We’ve tasted some fantastic wines, some excellent craft beer and made cocktails.  We’ve also travelled to the Hunter...
  • EFTM Best Entertainment 2017: Anki Overdrive

    So you’re looking for entertainment. Netflix?  Stan?  Amazon Prime?  The Movies?  Well, we reckon if you want an hour or so of great entertainment dust of the iPad or iPhone and pair up with your Anki Overdrive one for the kids and the parents without question. So good, we reckon...
  • EFTM Best Destination 2017: Tasmania

    We’re pretty lucky here, we get to travel the world – In fact I’ve stayed in hotels 86 nights of the year so far, so when it comes to destinations we’ve seen a lot. There’s Geoff’s favourite Vinyards, there’s the spectacular areas of Germany Chris visited a few months...
  • EFTM Best Home Theatre 2017: LG SJ9 Soundbar

    Last year’s Home Theatre winner was a soundbar featuring Dolby Atmos, this year it’s another win for a Soundbar, and another that includes Dolby Atmos. LG’s SJ9 Soundbar was announced at CES as one of a family of Soundbars offering a range of features and quality. The SJ9 doesn’t...
  • EFTM Best Wireless Sound 2017: Sony WF-1000X

    So this was debated quite extensively among the EFTM team. Geoff was keen on seeing the new Voice assistant integrated Sonos One being awarded Best Wireless Sound. I thought the great little JBL Kids were deserving of recognition, then I stopped and couldn’t get past the new Sony in-ear...
  • EFTM Best Gadget 2017: Sphero Lightning McQueen

    Looking back on 2017, the Sphero Lightning McQueen stood out immediately as an Award worthy release. Not just a toy though, this combination of robotics, interaction and movie merchandising is one hell of a gadget. For that reason, it was a shoe-in for the EFTM Best Gadget award for...
  • EFTM Best Family Car 2016: Kia Sportage

    What is a family car?  That’s the toughest part of categorising all the vehicles available today and trying to pigeon-hole every one of them.  In our mind, the modern family car is likely an SUV, and is big enough for a family of four and solid boot space....
  • EFTM Best TV 2016: Hisense ULED

    I don’t think there’s ever been a tougher year to judge TVs and recommend TVs to people in the market to spend their hard earned on that iconic part of the lounge room....
  • EFTM Best Luxury Car 2016: Jaguar F-Pace

    Starting at just under $75,000 plus options and on-roads, the Jaguar F-Pace is not an overpriced SUV but it’s not the cheapest either.  One thing it does exude though is luxury. It’s a Jaguar after all and they don’t just let second-rate run off the production line....
