GeoGearHeadsFor the one-hundredth edition of the GeoGearHeads The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 handle a packed agenda of random topics. First was feedback from [Team D]Benignsource (through his blog post), subwaymark, KristaWalks, Nighthawk700, CodeJunkie (through his post on a regional forum), wolrab (through his blog post), and BananaForce about their promotion of the GeoGearHeads. Next was the announcement of the "2013 GeoGearHead Audience Survey," where one lucky entry by the end of the year will receive a Magellan eXplorist GC (listen to the show for more information). "Giz" called in about a premium activity at the Greenbrier Resort which lead into discussion of Geoteaming. ds8300 contacted DarrylW4 about getting a GeoGearHeads Show unique. Geosphere 3.1 was the next item on the agenda. Then The Bad Cop got into the modular phones with the announcements from Motorola and ZTE. They also talked a little about GPS Tracklog's First looks at the Android-based Garmin Monterra. Next was articles about new mobile devices – "The Verge: Spec Sheet: Motorola shakes up low-cost smartphones with the Moto G" and "Android Central: Tegra Note 7 review." Some more information about T-Mobile's 200MB of free data for tablets came out. Engadget and The Vergewrote about a Google Glass Explorer who received a ticket for wearing Glass while she was driving. Finally was some discussion about the rule changes to flights in the U.S. and the E.U. allowing personal electronics in all stages of flights. Here are some links to articles on The Verge for more information:

GeoGearHeadsFor the ninety-eighth edition of the GeoGearHeads The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 discuss geocaching and space. This discussion was prompted by the "Geocaching in Space" events and hype from Groundspeak marking the return of Geocaching to space (Rick Mastracchio carried "International Space Station Travel Bug II by the 5th Grade Class of Chase Elementary School-Waterbury, CT" to the International Space Station). The Bad Cop attended the "Geocaching in Space - A Geocaching HQ Event!" event at the Pacific Science Center, hosted by Geocaching HQ. The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 talked about ways for civilians to get into space through Virgin Galactic, Novaspace, XCOR Aerospace, Armadillo Aerospace, and World View Enterprises. None of those options will get you to the "International Space Station" (GC1BE91) cache, and only seven civilians have flown to the ISS. There are geocaches and traveler here on Earth that have been to space. On GGH Beta.27: Orbiting Cache I we spoke with e6c about his caches launched into space – "PINELAND: Sputnik 2010: A Geocache Odyssey" (GC2JPJJ) and "PINELAND: LEIF MMXII: Geocache From Space!!" (GC3P578) – and some travelers (including our own Cache-A-Maniacs in Space!). Also mentioned was Gogo's partnership with Glympse for in-air location sharing and Gogo Text & Talk.

Thanks to Listener "Giz" for his voicemail on how he promoted the GeoGearHeads.

GeoGearHeadsThe Bad Cop and DarrylW4 revisit geocaching with a smartphone for the ninety-seventh edition of the GeoGearHeads. Smartphone geocaching was last featured during "GGH Beta.13." They tackled feedback, tips, and questions from iHam, JerseyEric, and Wet_Coaster. For iHam, look for the new epsiodes of "Caching In The NorthWest" each week. Wet_Coaster might be interested in the Trimble Juno T41 Family and Trimble Juno 5smartphones built for GIS. The list of some geocaching apps was also updated from that last show;
