Here’s The First Ever Echo Dot Discount, Plus $40 Off the Full-Sized Echo and Tap

Amazon Echo, $140 | Amazon Tap, $90 | Amazon Echo Dot, $40

The new Amazon Echo Dot is a brilliant little smart home assistant that you can hide in every corner of your home, and Amazon’s taking $10 off the base price for Black Friday. If you’re struggling to think of a gift idea for anyone on your shopping list, this is sure to be a hit with nearly everyone.

And if you were holding out for the full-sized Amazon Echo, complete with its booming speaker, it’s $40 off again right now, while supplies last.

In addition to being a pretty solid Bluetooth speaker, the Echo can check the weather, turn on your lights, read you the news, trigger custom IFTTT recipes, order food, and—my personal favorite—read you Jeopardy questions like a robotic Alex Trebek.

The battery-powered Amazon Tap is also $40 off, but it doesn’t feature the always-on microphone of its plugged-in siblings. So unless you really want to take Alexa on the road, you should probably skip it and get one of the other two.

Remains of the Day: Steam Kicks Off Autumn Sale

Just in time for Black Friday, Steam is kicking off their Autumn sale of PC games. It’s not a huge blowout in the grand old tradition of surprise Steam sales, but you might want to pick up a discounted game for the long weekend. That and more in the news.

Transport Hot Dishes In Your Car With a Towel-Lined Box

If you’re heading to a potluck dinner or on making your way to a big family meal, this spill-free transport technique will keep your hot dish nice and warm.

You can have somebody hold your dish, or set it on your seat, but when it gets dropped all over the floor of your car all that hard work you put into goes right out the window. That’s why Sheela Prakash at The Kitchn suggests a better transport alternative. Get an empty cardboard box, line with thick bath towels, then rest your dish inside. The food will keep warm sitting all snug in the towels, and it will be almost impossible to spill anything on the interior of your ride. If there are any spills, they’ll be safely contained in the box.
