The Moto X Pure “does Android better than Google,” and Amazon will sell you one today for an absurdly low $350. For context, these were on sale for $450 with $30 in Amazon credit on Black Friday, so if you couldn’t quite pull the trigger back then, I wouldn’t hesitate today. [Moto X Pure, $350]

Note: As our friend Jason Chen points out on Twitter, these aren’t really designed to keep your pet safe in a car crash.

Unlike an unsympathetic traditional alarm clock, the Philips Wake-Up Light eases you awake with a gradually-brightening light that simulates a natural sunrise, which is how humans are designed to wake up anyway. And of course, it will still nudge you awake with a gentle beep when it’s really time to get out of bed. It also doubles as a very warm and pleasant reading light as you’re getting ready to go to sleep. I’ve owned this thing for nearly a year, and I can definitely tell the difference when I sleep away from home and have to rely on my iPhone alarm. [Philips HF3500/60 Wake-Up Light, $48.

Thermos’s stainless steel can insulator uses vacuum insulation and thick walls to actually provide a barrier between your beverage and the outside world. They go so far as to claim that it will keep a can cold for up to 3 hours, and even if that’s a little bit of marketing hyperbole, what could possibly be in that can that takes more than an hour to drink?

What’s the most important thing you can do with your money this holiday season? FALSE. The correct answer was not give any more of it than you have to to airline companies. This travel-sized luggage scale is just $7 today, and will alert you if all those gifts you don’t want but have to carry back home are going to put your bag over the weight limit.

Many newer Android smartphones support a technology called Qualcomm Quick Charge, which allows them to charge up to 75% faster than usual when plugged into a certified high-power charger.
