    The Giz Wiz Show 1703, November 30th 2018 Independent Show #186

    The Giz Wiz Show is far into it's 13th year of production, and the fourth year of Independent Production! (The very first show was February 20th, 2006.) Thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters we continue on! If it wasn't for them, the Giz Wiz Show would be gone. If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: http://www.gizwiz.tv/.  You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help. Thanks from OMGchad & DickDe!)

    This week we check out three more unique gadgets --


    Did you buy something on Black Friday?


    I resisted, but then around 10 PM, I gave in and bought an Amazon Fire HD8 with Special Offers for $49.99. And ebates had an 8% cash back offer which dropped the price even further. But wait, there's more. Even at the price there was free one day shipping for Prime Members. It was amazing. Ordered it about 10 PM Friday night, had it in my hands by 1:30 PM Saturday! As you'll see in the video, that low price includes ads, tons of ads! I finally paid $15 + taxes to remove them on Amazon. The new Show Mode is nice since it lets you see notices from pretty far away. The new version offers a better front camera and can take a larger SD card. I thought it was a bit odd that everything is at the top edge of the tablet; charging port, headphone jack, volume and on/off tab.  As of this writing it's back to it's normal price $79.99 with Special Offers, or about $95.00 more ad-free. There are more details in this week's show.
