This week's gadget is the iTech Deals Tech Mystery Box, which for $20 gives you a box of technology accessories. Most of it is old technology, but it's fun. The downside is that the photo they use is fairly deceptive. The mystery box of tech is not always available, but if you sign up for their mailing list, you'll know what the next one takes place. Dick has bought stuff from iTechDeals in the past, and he likes them. But this Tech Mystery Box does them a disservice.

This week's gadget from the Giz Wiz is the Weems and Plath SOS Distress Light! It's the first and only LED Visual Distress Signal Device that meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements to completely replace traditional pyrotechnic flares. Unlike traditional flares, this electronic flare never expires which solves the big and annoying challenge of flare disposal. This floating electronic flare can be hand-held, tethered, or hoisted aloft. It's visible up to 10+ nautical miles and lights for up to 60 hours unlike traditional flares which last minutes or less.
