    Dick's Gadget Warehouse & How to Submit Your Viewer Video.

    Our video arrived with this email:

    Hi Dick & Chad:

    Dick, it was great meeting you at NY Comic Con. As promised here is my latest warehouse video.


    I know you want new videos and this will be my 4th one. I thought you might cut me some slack since I was the first viewer video back in 2013 :)


    Here is a link to the video https://youtu.be/QkDTZ2Kdr1I?t=25s


    I don't own this computer. The computer is owned by Infoage Science/History Learning Center http://www.infoage.org/


    As mentioned in the video, here is a link to the full presentation that you can share with your viewers.




    Thanks, Doug from NJ


    See or hear this show: www.gizwiz.tv/episode/1646 




    We’d love to include your video in an upcoming Giz Wiz Show, so 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 (favorite old, or favorite new): 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 us 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’ll a tiny amount of fame (hopefully), an autographed MAD magazine and a 35-year-old Alfred E. Neuman picture. So that's one more (so-so) reason to send in your video!

    IMPORTANT: We'll just shower you with praise for your video if you live outside the US or Canada since we can't afford to send stuff outside of those two places. (Thanks for understanding.)


    All show submissions go to mail@gizwiz.tv

    Thanks, Ed.


    The Giz Wiz found a commercial for them on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VazcyY4GTk4


    GizWizLink. Pay the as everybody else, but GizWizBiz gets a small credit to buy more stuff. (We'll spend more than twice as much the credit we get this year, but it's a great help. Thanks.)
