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

    Our viewer video this week came with this email in which the sender (Doug) says we'll love his video within the video --- and we did! It's pretty impressive and done with a really cheap gadget.

    Hey Dick & Chad,

    Here's a warehouse video for you of a gadget you didn't cover when you did spy gadgets. The keychain camera.

     

    You'll love the video I made with it.

    I'll be here, Doug from NJ

     

    +++++++++++++++++++++++

    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 earn a tiny amount of fame (hopefully). And if you live in the US, you'll also get an autographed 35-year-old Alfred E. Neuman picture and a MAD surprise (most likely the current issue of MAD.) But no matter where you live, I can email an autographed to you Alfred E. Neuman photo if we show your video. Just print it out, frame it, or just hang it up and no one will know it's a copy. We've tested it out and fans say they look terrific!

     

    All show submissions go to mail@gizwiz.tv

    Letter of the week:

     

    From: Dan Wakerhauser

     

    Subject: interesting gadget announced from Nintendo

     

    I hope you two had fun at CES. Since you don't usually cover video games, you may not have seen this product announcement from Nintendo this week . But it seems like it would be right up your alley since you cover a lot of tech toys. I'd love to see your reaction to it.

    From the Giz Wiz: Thanks for sharing, Dan. This is a great idea. And a lot of people think so too. The video already has more than 12 million views.
