1 Sonos ‘One’ OK, so the voice control feature is not available here yet – but it will be soon. Still, it’s worth the investment. The Sonos ‘One’ has touch-sensitive controls, a pair of Class-D amplifiers and custom-built drivers – it’s also humidity resistant so you can place it in the bathroom. Pair two together and it’s double the fun. Or, at least, slightly better sound quality. SONOS ‘ONE’, $299; SONOS.COM/EN-AU 2 Foxtel ‘Now Box’ If you’re sick of that big, clunky eyesore stuck under your TV, the Foxtel ‘Now Box’ might be the solution. Small, subtle and easily hidden, it brings you Foxtel through your internet connection with a free-to-air tuner – just in case you feel like living like it’s 1999.

What I see is more people taking greater responsibility to help make this world a better place for everyone. On a personal level, this year will be particularly exciting for a couple of reasons. The first one, you might have already guessed. It is a tremendous honour to be named the editor of GQ Australia, a title that is not only one of the country’s most prestigious publications, but that has…

running the show

Like all sports, running is a skill that needs to be learned – but plenty are guilty of assuming otherwise. Because anyone can just go for a run, right? Well, no, actually – that’s your first mistake. It’s a sport that needs constant refining and if done incorrectly can do more harm than good. Sports Medicine Australia claims that up to 70 per cent of runners sustain overuse injuries during a 12-month period. Then there’s the trap too many fall into – doing the same ol’ route, at the same ol’ pace week in, week out.
