    Dick's Gadget Warehouse & How To Submit Your Video.

    On a previous Giz Wiz Show where the viewer video was an old gaming system, Chad asked viewers to send in other viewer videos featuring old gaming systems like the Nintendo Entertainment System.

    Kevin in Ohio was watching and sent us a viewer video featuring his NES. He also offers a hint on how to make sure the cartridges played correctly - most of the time.


    Thanks for the show! -Kevin in Beaverdam-

    See or hear this show: www.twit.tv/giz1507 


    Get an autographed copy of  MAD Magazine and a 35 year old Alfred E. Neuman picture, plus a piece of crap from the TwiT Brickhouse if we show your video. Don’t you think you should make a video for us too? Details below. 


    We’re looking for more Viewer Videos! We’d love to include your video in an upcoming Giz Wiz Show, so let’s go going!  

    Here’s what we’re looking for: Your home shot video – 2 to 3 minutes long, in any of the following categories:  

    I bought a piece of crap: Did you buy something you ended up hating? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies.   

    I invented this! Did you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions. No professional ads please.  

    My Gadget Warehouse: Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget(s). When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it.   

    My Favorite Gadget of All Time: Show us what it is, tell us what it does and why you love, or loved it! It can be a new gadget you just bought too.   

    Post them on YouTube and send our producer, Jeff Needles, the link! We'll do the rest. (Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, videos should be just 2 to 3 minutes long! Low production value is fine, but we should be able to hear you and see you! If we select and show your video on The Giz Wiz you will now be awarded with some sort of prize. Like an autographed MAD magazine and some piece of crap. So that's one more (so-so) reason to send in your video!   

    All show submissions go to gizwiz@twit.tv   


    Letter of the week: 

    Name: Jeffrey Nehlsen aka Capt J 

    A few weeks back I wrote you about the wine featured on the Sharks Tank. My 75 yo Mother was thrilled not only to hear her son's letter mentioned on such a highly acclaimed podcast but you said my name correctly. Most people mess up a few times, Witness Protection always ends up asking and they issued it.

    Last night I was watching and at the end you were talking about 3D all in one's? And one for 2 grand?

    Go to Amazon, $799.99 Prime and if you wait a few weeks its will go from a one color printer to three color.
