Few extra Friday tidbits

A couple of extra bits I thought should be shared today:

Free stuff for bloggers. I’ve just had an email from my friend Chris (LG Blog) that Berocca are sending out a load of freebies to bloggers to help us de-stress. The Blogger Relief Pack includes:

  • Stress ball
  • USB “stress” button
  • Bubble wrap keyring (these are cool 🙂 )
  • “Dead Fred” pen holder
  • Pack of Berocca

You can sign up here.

We have our first Coolest gadget of the week poll going, if you vote and comment you have a chance to win $50.

I thought this was cool, with the release of FireFox 3 this week the IE team at Microsoft sent them a cake, sweet, who says Microsoft hasn’t got a sense of humor.
