    The Giz Wiz Show 1708, January 3rd 2019 Independent Show #191

    Soon The Giz Wiz Show will finished it's 12th 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!)

    And now on with our Picks For Worst Gadgets & Gizmos of 2018!

    We start with a new camera that really isn't 'the worst of', but it certainly fits “MOST BIZARRE” new gadget. At CES 2018 Kodak said that their Super8 Film Camera, yes FILM camera with a MSRP of $3,000 would be on shelves by spring/early summer. A year later and it seems all you can do at the Kodak website is sign up for updates about buying one. (As of 1/04/19) And I should mention a cassette of super 8mm film with processing & digital disc is about $100, and that is for under 3 minutes of film/video.

     

    Here's the story from CES 2018: https://tinyurl.com/Kodak8mmFilmVideoCamera

     

    And the Kodak website, where the camera is still not listed as being available to buy, as of 1/04/180

    Black & Decker WiFi Slower Cooker.

     

    Chad found the cooker was okay, but the app was totally under-cooked and needed a lot more work before it could be called 'well done'. The show on Chad's Crappy Corner and his full review is here:

    It was $59.99 on Amazon on 1/4/19, but it was $49.99 at Walmart.
