SEARCHING FOR some cool stocking stuffers with a techy edge for under $30? How about a battery-enhanced toothbrush that sings like Justin Bieber, a protective case for a smartphone, or a vibrating magic "bullet" that turns a carton of eggnog into a loudspeaker? You may not have to go far for such cute stuff. Even stores not known for gadgets stack 'em high this time of year. Of course, goodies galore also await online for those who act fast. BEYOND BEYOND: A good example of living past its image is Bed, Bath and Beyond, notwithstanding the goofy "Dancing and Singing Rabbi" ($14.99)

Bieber started the show descending from the rafters equipped with a set of massive metallic wings, shedding them for a rave-up version of "All Around the World.
