Dr Karl Kruszelnicki — is there anything he can't do?

We're coming up to Christmas with tremendous speed, and that means you're probably busily choosing and shopping and buying presents for everyone special in your life. But don't forget yourself -- you deserve a special Christmas gift too. Here at Gizmodo, we want to give you a present. So we've teamed up with Sony Mobile to celebrate one of this year's best smartphones, the $999 Xperia XZ. We're giving you the chance to win one.
