MSN Messenger has a healthy 255 million users round the world - possibly something to do with Microsoft bundling it with every copy of Windows. Not being one to miss a trick, Logitech's come up with a webcam and headset bundle to take advantage of its video calling abilities.Looking alarmingly like a Cyclops robot puppy, the QuickCam's clinging forepaws are designed to stick doggedly to monitor top, while the moveable head is adjustable for optimum view. It'll capture a reasonable 640x480 pixels and promises to handle even the darkest teenager's bedroom.The headset is fine for those who like the call centre look – at least it manages noise cancelling and stereo sound.Logitech hope it'll be a hit with those looking for a no-fuss solution and at a penny shy of fifty notes, it's not going to break the bank either.
