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

    Our Viewer video of the week arrived with this email:

    Hi Dick & Chad,

    I am not the greatest of speakers, but I have this kind of strange, but useful gadget that I have been wanting to share with you for a long time so I finally broke down and made a video.

    This is a bluetooth audio cassette.  I use it in my truck that has no auxiliary input.  I have tried the FM bluetooth adapters, but they always seem to fade in and out.  This thing works flawlessly.  The only problem with it is that you need to charge it once in a while.  My power outlet stays on, even while the key is out, so when I remember, I simply plug it in when I park my truck.

    It's a little less than $20 on Amazon.  


    Here is the link to my video: https://youtu.be/VW9gQa_v6qY 

    Thanks so much! Love the show! Michael Stevens

    See or hear this show: www.gizwiz.tv/episode/1674  


    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 canemail 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

    This link works sometimes, sometimes asks me to update my browsers. I guess a workaround would be to
