Producers,

Your No Agenda Show is back "live" this week at the regular times.

The show lost money on the two pre-produced shows. But a few producers stuck with us,  and for those who enjoyed these special shows and contributed, thanks!

If you have never donated to the show or haven’t contributed for a while, please help us get back on track by clicking here and contributing any amount. This is your show after all.

And, while discussing being on track, you will get some real insight into the Spanish rail crash that the mainstream media has just blamed on operator error and a madman engineer, hell bent on speed. These trains are computer controlled (with redundant systems) and the train engineer cannot “hot rod” the things as if he was in his Tauro V8 on the back roads of Rioja. Why is he getting blamed in the media? You will hear analysis nobody else provides.



Adam has been roaming Europe and will be producing the Thursday’s show from another Air BnB landing spot in Amsterdam. For you, the producer and listener, a lot of effort is put into the show.
 

While in Europe, where Adam will be a bit longer, he has found some new insight into the condition of the EU and what people are really thinking. Unlike the mainstream media whose correspondents never venture far from the five-star hotel lobby, Adam is on the streets. He has more than a few shocking reports and some funny stories.

Do not miss the next No Agenda Show this Thursday.

Your hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry

When Customers Figure Out New Ways To Game The System, Everyone Loses [feedly]

In my opinion this is completely fine as the pricing is in the packaging anyway. The salad bar is using the cheese from a much larger bin, thus the pricing structure is different anyway. This is no different than buying food in bulk. If the person is willing to go out of their way to package it from the salad bar themselves, then so should the pricing be less.  If the store feels this is unfair then they should simply post signs stating so and move on!

Google Chromebooks Aren't Completely Dead: 20 Percent Of IT Professionals Want Them, Analyst Says [feedly]

I knew for the price I had to get one and since I was on the fence whether the MacBook air would be the way to go, since I already use the MacBook Pro (mid 2009 edition), I am quite pleased with my decision.  Considering you get all the additional storage online for 2 years, plus 12 free gogo wifi sessions it essentially makes the unit free of charge, so why not!

Despite Recent Crashes, Trains Are One Of The Safest Ways To Travel

Sounds like Train's Good, Planes Bad?  But this is debatable since Air travel still has a better record than trains. Just one more reason to listen to The No Agenda Show, to get the truth!

New iPhone with biometric fingerprint sensor seemingly confirmed by iOS leak

Not quite sure why this is something only now being brought back to mobile devices. I had it on one of my HP Pocket PC's and it was great. When I left it at Airport Security only to have it lost/stolen I wasn't too worried about my data since it was protected in this fashion.  This is truly something that should be on all mobile devices.

Nexus 7 finds Apple napping

I knew this was probably going to happen when I first picked up my original Nexus 7 followed by the Ipad Mini the following week. Comparing the two at that point I knew the Nexus 7 was on to something. Then with the news that it would be another year before Apple had a retina display ipad mini.. it was only a matter of time....Apple is falling further behind what used to be the 'bleeding edge' of technology.
 

Five Best Car GPS Units

I have a Garmin Nuvi and am constantly comparing it to the Smartphone "Waze" App.. truly no comparison as the live ability of WAZE makes it the best.  On maybe 1 in 10 destinations has the Nuvi been the best solution and once I entered the same coordinates in to the WAZE app, it too recognized the best time was that and from then on it would be the most accurate as well.

No Agenda Producers Update

Dear Producers and Supporters,

We are coming off the absolute best clip show ever and want to thank Ramsey Cain for putting it together. You'll get a fascinating couple of interviews tomorrow then back to our regular programming schedule on Thursday.

We want to remind you to continue to support the show by creating a unique and memorable donation amount by clicking here. Donating is LOVE.

You can be certain we will have plenty of news to discuss including the odd death of super-hacker Barnaby Jack in San Francisco. We’ll know more by Thursday. Look this guy up on YouTube and watch some of his outstanding presentations.

There was also the story of the two whole S.W.A.T. teams that were used to evict an old woman from her foreclosed home. She claimed she was fighting the foreclosure in court, which is quite likely and common. There was a case on the West Coast where the Bank of America foreclosed on a family even though the home was paid off.Plus the BofA never had a loan on the house in the first place. Quick action saved the family.

S0 you should make sure to catch the Sunday interview show and 
an all-newThursday show. Get ready for what will be a great report from Europe. This will be another show with me in California and Adam Curry in Europe.

Your co-host

John C. Dvorak
PS Make sure to visit the donation page here for special offers and fun ways to contribute.
PPS A lot of people are using time payment plans set up by their bank. You should consider this.

Newsletter
Producers,

As you all know tomorrow’s show is pre-produced and will feature a compilation ofimportant clips from the past five years. Anyone getting a producer’s credit for contributing to the Thursday or following Sunday show will get those credits, as usual, when the show is posted on the website.  All other donors plus the producers will also get a call out on August 1.

This same policy holds true for the upcoming Sunday show. That show will feature two very cool  interviews. Don't miss it!

People have been asking for occasional interviews and we try to do them as separate “specials” rather than No Agenda shows. This is an exception.

We hope to show you how much we care about continuing to produce shows, even when on short vacation. This tells you how much you , the producers, mean to us. So please continue your support of the show during this lone week with a generous contribution of any amount here, or on the donation page here.

Your hosts
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry
PS Read John’s blog post about how he turns a robocall into a plea to listen to No Agenda. You should  do the same thing too.

No Agenda Support Letter

Email not displaying correctly? View it in your browser.
Dear Producers and Supporters,

Last Thursday was a paltry day for donations and we’re coming up on some special shows. We needmore support for this Sunday’s showPlease click here and contribute. Any amount will help.

We will be broadcasting live on Sunday with Adam in Europe. The two shows that follow will be pre-produced. While these two shows will probably be shorter than usual, they will be excellent and interesting shows.

On Tuesday, we have a special clip show produced for us by our clip-meister Randy Cain of No Agenda CD fameOn Thursday, Adam and I will rollout a couple of in-depth interviews we each did. This should satisfy the cravings of the few producers who like that sort of thing.

One issue of importance will be crediting donors and contributors for these two shows. Everyone who contributes to these two shows will be mentioned as usual on the first show in August. This is slightly problematic for birthday call outs, though, as many will be belated.


If you want a call out in advance, get on the Sunday show with a generous donation by clicking here.

Thank you for your continued support and appreciation,

John C. Dvorak
PS If in doubt about donations, visit the support page here.

Would You Pay for Apps You Already Own Again in iOS 7? [feedly]

For me, absolutely not!  I have so many apps that I have paid for that I would be better off to give up on IOS and Apple and move to Android devices. Just as the Ipad 1 and now Ipad 2 are becoming extinct due to the limitations of the newer software, it would seem the only route to take, should they decide to make IOS 7 this way is to give up on Apple.

Producers,
What you hear on No Agenda on Thursday, you may hear in the mainstream media six months from now. The recent speculation about Hillary Clinton getting a facelift and a nose job are old news for you, the No Agenda listener.
We do it by looking for anomalies, actually reading legislation and listening to endless hours of Congressional testimony. The result is a perspective on current events that actually makes sense and explains away inconsistencies and incongruities that the corporate media tries to feed you. Think about how valuable this is to you.


You must realize that the corporate media (mainstream media, lame stream media, whatever you want to call it) is not representing the public-at-large. It represents large corporate and government interests which are minority interests.

Corporate interests are not your interests. Government interests are not your interests. The No Agenda analysis is far more mainstream and with a majority perspective.  That is why we are successful. We serve your interests and that is why we must be user supported and only user supported. And we thank you for that support.

As usual, there is lots of good stuff coming on the next No Agenda show. Includingdebunking some lagging propaganda regarding the Zimmerman trial. Hopefully this whole affair ends soon.

We also have an on-the-scene report from the Asiana crash by one of our producers who is an emergency worker plus other exclusives on the No Agenda Show. Tune in.

Your hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry

No Agenda Update

_______good bye lucy!
Dear Producers,

How is the No Agenda Show fitting into your weekly regime? No Agenda is the only show that continues to report accurately on the entire episode with the Bolivian President and the phony “forced landing.” You have to realize that the show is something special. You have to ask yourself, what is wrong with the rest of the media?You have to ask yourself, do I want to keep No Agenda going?


Please help maintain the show with a generous donation to support and continue the show on a week to week basis by contributing to the show today by clicking here!

And don’t miss Sunday’ show as we dissect the peculiar NTSB discussion about thefake names given to the Asiana pilots and the subsequent cover-up of which “intern” is behind this. Does this confusion reflect all of government?


And off goes Janet “Lucy” Napolitano. She quits DHS and goes to the UC system that we’ve identified as the source of recruits for the Intelligence community/cabal.


Also, you will get more on the mysterious Hastings death as well as the bogative train derailment and subsequent crude oil explosion. And what’s with the continual military “training” exercises over urban areas?

You must listen to the Sunday show and continue your support. We both thank you for that.

Your co-host,

John C. Dvorak
