"Each day brings new, stressful situations we must deal with in our business lives and our personal lives [sic]" - and let us not forget the bullying. That said, you may either breathe diaphragmatically, enter a deathmatch with your monitor (only applicable for "Computer Rage"), fantasize about starting the countdown on the the edifice/entity of your choice, or simply do yourself in (but for heavens sake, do the job correctly).

100& safe? I don't think hitting a flat panel with ANYTHING (yes even a foam axe as the handle is still plastic) is a good idea. Especially because you're most likely going to be doing this at work, and chances are, you don't use your personal machine in the office. You crack a LCD, you now own a 10 lb. paperweight/art piece. The panic button on the other hand, meh, I'd fool with it for awhile....

I'd love to have the panic button for those moments when a client is armchair designing over my shoulder. "Screw it! I'm blowing your design up!"

Oh, I'm not arguing against its cool novelty factor, I'm just thinking of the reaction from Management/IT when they hear "realistic breaking sounds" and see you whacking away with a object. Also, like many Wiinjuries, since you're doing this because your pissed, you may end up doing it too hard and hitting the screen with the handle. Still, I guess you could just sue the company who makes it. 100% safe, my ass!

Debaser: I'm thinking that the reaction from Management/IT is exactly why I'd buy that product.
