Our thirty-ninth beta show is another Randomize edition with hosts The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 covering a number of issues. The first item was feedback from xpunkx about using GSAK to load images into the Magellan eXplorist units. Next was a topic submitted by CraigRat -- distracted driving. We talked a little about AT&T's new "It Can Wait" site and "DriveMode" apps for Android and Blackberry. We also mentioned the "Griffin Drivesafe" app for iOS users which contains information about driver laws in various locations. Our hosts moved to discussions of Munzee including the new NFC Tags for Android Users, the dfx.at Munzee to GPX converter, and the CacheMania post "Garmin Will Buy Munzee.com." The new HTC 8X and 8S Windows Phone 8 devices were mentioned, along with the new Nook HD and Nook HD+. The hosts also talked a little about some of the tear-down information on Apple's new Lightning Connector and the chips required in the cable.
