Having a Tech YouTube channel often provides a great opportunity to try out some of the latest fun and exciting technologies. Some I pay for, some are provided. The goal is to always provide honest feedback, details and information to help you determine if it’s something you might find helpful or enjoy! I have a number of guides available for the primary topics I cover.
Having a giveaway is something new to the channel, but one that has brought me the most satisfaction. You enter the giveaway, follow the rules of the game, if selected and win… I ship it to you. Pretty simple.
You’ll find in the weeks, months or perhaps years ahead that some of the stuff I show on this channel will be given away to those that watch my content. Just a small way to give back to the community. Along the way, I may enhance whatever is shown, to some extent. You’ll just have to wait and find out what I mean (subtle hint for the next giveaway that is forthcoming). Stay tuned to the channel if you want to enter! It will make a great Christmas gift for someone, rest assured.
Below you’ll find all of those who have won something from Wagner’s TechTalk and if they decide to share a comment and/or photo about the item they received -it is always optional. All the Best and Good luck on the next one! –Jon

Congratulations to Bill from WA who won the Asteroids Replicade! The original review video may be found here. In that video, towards the end I show an alternative way to still find the machine. It was at that time I decided to order (and hold on to) the machine until the channel reached a specific milestone. For the backstory, see this video.
Bill’s winning comment:
“My favorite arcade game was Atari Sprint, the old black and white arcade game.”
Below is what Bill had to say after receiving his new Asteroids Replicade:
11/17/2021 – The Replicade arrived today!! I have opened and have given it a go. It works great! Thank you so much for this! I missed out on the Dragon’s Lair but have ordered the 1942 game. I enjoy your videos. I have a couple Raspberry Pi 4 that I use, one CanaKit and one PiBoy. I have found your videos very helpful for those and I thank you for that help!
