Good stuff I found this week:
Skitch – Mac program that allows you to annotate, edit and share photos and screen shots very quickly – worth noting that it used to be $19.95 but Evernote bought it and made it free (great tie in with Evernote use)

Stylebot – Chrome browser extension that allows you to edit the CSS view of any page and save the new style – this can be a great tool for a site you interact with frequently, like Google+ for example, but you want to create your own look and remove things like ads. (There’s also a sharing site where you can find lots of styles for common pages already done.)

Clipik – video editing service that allows you to upload video, music and images and have them edited by a professional for as little as $49. Could be an inexpensive way to add a little professional zip to your business videos.
