Friday has finally arrived and we're in the mood to treat ourselves — on a budget of course. Luckily for us and you, iTunes is offering adventure game Horn for free, as Amazon discounts adidas baby sets to as low as $5.50. These deals and more are in today's list of five Editors' Choice deals that we found overnight and early this morning.
