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

    This week viewer video is from Jason Peddicord. It arrived with this email:

    I took this video while waiting in my semi. Along with the link I have included two pictures of the box. I did give the wrong company name in the video and the correct one is Bracetron.

    Company website:

    UPDATE: I thought I this device on Crutchfield for just $25.00 - (As of 5/18/17) But although they show the device we see in the warehouse video, when the product number on the company website, it is for a 3-way USB charger add-on that fits on the Bracetron device. I'll leave the link so you can judge for yourself

    We’re looking for more Viewer Videos!

    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.)

    Letter of the week:

     Hi Dick and Chad,

     I really enjoyed your segment on the magnetic USB cables, Chad.  I have a few that I bought from a different vendor several months ago and really like them.  Today I found an even better solution at Indiegogo.  They are adapters that change your current cables into magnetic cables.
    Steve Miller - Tardisrider in the chat room when I remember to tune in when you are live.
    I’ve been a Gizwiz listener/viewer since the third month Dick and Leo started the series. 
    Also a proud Pateron supported since the beginning of your independent Gizwiz.
