  • EFTM Blokes Best 2017: Ford Ranger XLT

    Three years in a row – that’s something special for Ford. That’s the streak they have on the EFTM Blokes Best Award – first with the relaunched Ranger, then the Mustang and now the Ranger XLT Ford have taken it right up to Toyota’s Hilux in the tradie market,...
  • EFTM Best Tech 2017: BMW Driving Assistance Plus

    We could have given “Best Tech” to any one of 15 other EFTM Award winners this year, and then there’s the many things that haven’t been recognised here this week.  But what’s interesting is our decision to give it to bit of car tech over and above our “Best...
  • EFTM Best Car 2017: Kia Stinger

    Brand snobs, Holden fans and even Ford fans turn away. There’s a new kid in town and as far as we’re concerned it’s here to stay. The Kia Stinger as Chris Bowen mentioned in his review is not the most impressive car we’ve driven this year, but it’s by...
  • EFTM Best Lifestyle 2017: Netgear Arlo Baby

    Back in my day there were baby monitors that allowed you to hear what was happening in the baby’s room, perhaps even a small camera with a grainy black and white video too.  Today, things have moved forward, and just like they did with the home security space, Netgear...
  • EFTM Best TV 2017: Hisense Series 7

    Here’s a controversial one – Best TV.  Despite there being no stunning innovation in TV for a few years so we’ve been seeing incremental improvements in picture quality and advances in HDR and other image enhancing features. In reality there are three contenders for this award, the Samsung Series...
  • EFTM Best Gaming 2017: Xbox One X

    Nintendo Switch, Some great accessories, and the Xbox One X – all contenders for the EFTM Best Gaming award for 2017.  The winner though was a quick decision because the Xbox One X is the most powerful console out today and it’s amazing how they’ve packed it into such...
  • EFTM Best Family Car 2017: Kia Carnival

    As the member of the team with the biggest family, it’s my job to determine the EFTM award for Best Family Car this year. Now I got to drive a fair few cars you’d put in that category, but unlike some, I know full well that while a hatch-back...
  • EFTM Best Networking 2017: Netgear Orbi

    When we first started discussing Best Networking I almost overlooked Orbi, thinking it had been around for longer than a year – in fact, it was announced last August, but only became available in Australia this year. That shows how far we’ve come with networking, we now have Mesh...
  • EFTM Best Luxury Car 2017: BMW 740e

    The BMW 7 series has long been the absolute best the brand has on offer. Over the years it’s been a pioneering marvel, setting new benchmarks as each generation was rolled out. In 2017 we spent two weeks with the BMW 740e, a plug-in hybrid luxury barge. This is...
  • 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 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 Drop 2017: Handpicked Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
