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

    Our email is from a fan of the show who sends us his second video. He explains how great it is that technology helps him do more things even though he is wheel chair bound. Here's Dell's email:

    Good afternoon dick and Chad, this is just my little video on my Google mini, which I really like and I heard that you like dick. Now dick you may not remember this I sent you an email many years ago, I was in a nursing home, could only access the computer for 1 hour per day, so I would burn stuff back then on DVDs and bring them back into my room. Well now I've been in my own place for 3 years now. And I watch you guys every week, and I spend more than one hour at a time on the computer now LOL. Keep up the good job guys love the show

    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




    Letter of the week:


    Subject: Dick's gadget wearhouse


    Dick, you stated that you were unable to find the cell phone gadget on line. (The cell phone holder that Angela Newhook showed in her warehouse video.) I found it on Amazon for as low as $6.20.


    I hope that this helps. Brandon Hanke
