    Giz Wiz Show 1713 February 8, 2019 Independent Show #195 

    This month of February, The Giz Wiz Show starts it's 13th year of production, and the fifth year of Independent Production! (The very first Giz Wiz 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. 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!

    We start with a bargain priced device that will still be at that price when you read this! First, here's the info on the Joby GripTight Micro Stand.


    I recently bought the Amazon Fire 8 tablet, which I want to use on my boat to watch videos. I have a dozen stands for phones, but nothing for a small tablet. So when I got this info from BH Photo, it sounded like the ideal solution. “The black GripTight Micro Stand for Smaller Tablets from JOBY provides a compact stand for smaller tablets 3.8 to 5.5 wide with or without a case attached. Paired with the zinc-aluminum folding legs of the Micro Hybrid tripod this stand enables you to position your tablet in the desired viewing angle regardless of whether you're watching a movie surfing the web or setting up for a photo shoot. Tilt (degrees) +36/-36. Lightweight at 3.9 oz and with a slim profile you can easily take the GripTight Micro Stand with you.” Perfect, I bought one, not for the MSRP of $29.99, but for $7.95 with free shipping. It includes the micro tripod that I've seen selling by itself for $11 to $15.00. This deal was still $7.95 on Saturday, 2/9/19. (BH Photo is closed on Saturdays, but you should be able to order it online as I did. There's tax in NYC, but they shipped it free to me.)
