Showerheads, chopsticks, condoms and a vast array of other Star Wars-related products have hit the shelves recently in an effort to tap into the hype around the new film.

Tech sweeteners: Xero, TradeMe and Vend's guide to staff engagement

There's a battle for talent happening in the tech sector, as evidenced by the massive salaries and various perks being offered by big tech companies like Facebook, Google and Apple.
