Windows 8.1 May Become A Freebie OS

I'll believe it when I see it... so far the Microsoft marketing staff have been far from perfect.  With the initial $39.99 upgrade option (and even less for IT support staff getting it as low as $16.95) as an upgrade before they raised the rate to the 'typical' $100+  In my opinion this is where Microsoft went wrong. If they were to have left it at the lower price they would have had a much smoother integration from those using previous o/s's. As well, they would not have faced such a rash of ridicule over the windows 8 issues like a missing start button but when people are forced to spend over $100 to upgrade their operating system, they don't expect to be learning from scratch. It's unfortunate but true.. money does speak volumes!

No Agenda Newsletter

A short newsletter highlighting some recent discoveries and initiatives of the No Agenda Show. Listen live every Thursday and Sunday at 9:00 AM PST. Always available for download at the show page here.

Newsletter
Producers,

With only two executive producers of any sort last Sunday, the producers have to step upas we head to the show 600 and the March doldrums. Please go to the support page as soon as you can and contribute to tomorrow’s show. So far this week, it looks grim.

 

Grim? What happens to me?

The Thursday show is promising to be phenomenal because the news is getting more interesting by the day. Too bad the mainstream corporate media is not digging deeper, there is gold there. But they get their gold in other ways, right? Advertising.
 

Advertising. Mmmmmm. I love it.
 Screw No Agenda!
A few items of interest tomorrow include some tech news coming out of Barcelona; and what’s the real deal with Netflix and Comcast and you?

Meanwhile, action in Ukraine continues as its President flees to Crimea. Your No Agenda Show was the first to tell you that the little Republic of Crimea will be the centerpiece of some International action.

 

Ever heard of the Crimean War?
John has a weird tidbit from the Economic Hitman. Chuck Hegel wants to shrink the Armed Forces? Or does he really? The Egyptian cabinet walks out and quits. Why?

The early Red Book prediction that Piers Morgan would not be a keeper on CNN has come to fruition, but is it too late for the network?

One of the great things about your No Agenda Show are the resources the show does for you. This means show notes. This is a collection of the documents used to deconstruct stories. There is nothing on the web that comes close.

Instead of random people prattling on expressing what they think is going on based on what others tell them is going on, your No Agenda Show has the goods. Actually, the documents, pdf files, links to sources, videos and more. This is all found here.

A lot of high school and college students use the No Agenda archives to develop essays and papers using this data. It’s very difficult to argue against popular opinion that has been molded by mass media nonsense and government lies propagated by radio and TV. Unless, that is, you have the proof. We provide that free-of-charge as part of your No Agenda Show.

 
Please continue to support these important efforts by contributing today.

Your co-hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry
PS If you cannot become an executive producer, you still get Knighthood credits for a subscription.Click here for the popular $33.33 a month subscription to your No Agenda Show.

Chicago PD Believes It Can See The Future, Starts Warning Citizens About Crimes They Might Commit

This is what is know as 'pre-crime' and is something Adam and John on the No Agenda show have predicted many years ago. Far ahead of the typical news media, these two do an awesome job at discriminating what is real news!

BlackBerry said to be replacing Microsoft in Ford's new cars

What I don't get about this news is why Ford doesn't just buy out Blackberry altogether if they are serious about making the switch from Microsoft to Blackberry. That would make a lot more sense to me, since Blackberry is a sinking ship anyway.

Man Bites into Birthday Cake, Finds Dead Rat

Here is just one more reason why you should be getting your news from The No Agenda Show.. in this article they mention 'the grocery chain' without revealing just what chain it is.. why? Most likely because they are advertisers for ABC and ABC News affiliates!  It is just so sad that the general public put up with this garbage!

No Agenda-The 600 Club

Dear Producers,

Show 600 is approaching and we’re looking for more 600 Club Special Producers. You get two producers credits and you’ll become very important to the success of the upcoming episode. Click here and contributed to your No Agenda Showtoday.

 

There are plenty of things to talk about on the Sunday Show and encourage you to listen to the most important news analysis show done by anyone. Ukraine is now at the forefront, but so too Mexico with the curious capture of the head of the Sinaloa cartel Joaquin Guzman. Since the Sinaloa cartel was believed to be in bed with the US Justice Department, you can be sure that your No Agenda Show will have some new angles to consider.

There will be more about Putin, Obama and the EU of course, but we have to be looking for a six week cycle event. Again these are things you will hear discussed no place else. Because commercial interests do not allow such discussions to take place. It is just that simple. And that is why you support the show. You also support the show for the deep knowledge and insight you gain from our analysis. Please continue to do so with a contribution of whatever you can afford, no amount is too small byclicking here.

Thank you for your support.
Your co-host,

John C. Dvorak
PS. Yes, the support page needs love to. Dvorak dot org slash NA. Find something you like.

Report: Mac users 4x more 'engaged' than Windows users

This only makes sense, considering upgrading to the latest O/S on a Mac is generally less than $30 and in the case of Mavericks, it was free, so yes, upgrading is a no-brainer to those using a Mac.  Windows users are still using XP only because they hear the horror stories of the next O/S, in that case, Vista which was terrible for upgrading, quite simply because the Vista O/S required so much more memory (RAM) and to a Windows XP user, that had 256mb or maybe 512mb, they required a minimum of 2GB and preferably 4GB of memory.  This is generally never the problem with the Mac O/S when it comes to upgrades.

New Flash vuln exploited (again). Adobe posts emergency fix (again)

Did you know if you use Chrome you do not need adobe reader? Chrome has the ability to read adobe pdf files. In fact if you use Windows 8, it now ships with a pdf reader so the Adobe Acrobat Reader is NOT required.. Do yourself and your computer a favor and just uninstall Adobe reader!  If you have to use the adobe photoshop program then be sure to turn off the automatic updates and manually go and get the latest update from the adobe website.

Drone strike may have killed 12 civilians

The USA and their 'DRONE STRIKES'.. someone should really do some research on just how many civilians have died due to this and compare it to the 911 disaster, in numbers.. since the USA places so much of the future of WAR and REVENGE from the falling of these towers, it seems to me that a few killed here and there, in the past 12 or 13 years would likely come close, if not more, than the numbers lost during the 911 tower incident.. yet Americans continue to not care about DRONE STRIKES simply because it is not happening on their own soil (yet).

As a Canadian I believe Obama should not be pressuring Harper with Global Warming issues and be more concerned with keeping the peace between our two countries over more serious concerns like Global Drone Striking by the USA!

Why The Facebook-WhatsApp Deal Is Bad For Users


Of course this is not good, if Facebook owns it, how can it possibly be good. This is just one more notch in its belt that will eventually smother the entire internet social community if more strict regulations are not put in place, with regards to internet companies on a global market, not the restrictions to the internet itself.. Please do not associate 'restrictions' with the internet at all as the internet should NOT be regulated whatsoever as it was never intended to be 'governed' by any one party!

'Piers Morgan Live' Hits Second Lowest Adults 25-54 Rating Ever

The fact that CNN continues to air this pathetic program is proof that the network is truly suffering.  When you read stats like "total viewers (274,000) and adults 25-54 (64,000)" what does that really mean? It seems like either people with small children and babies are using CNN as a sleep tool, leaving the tv on CNN just for the sake of the moving pictures. The true statistic is the 64,000 adult viewers.. for a network that is truly seen globally, there are more followers/listeners on any basic podcast!

Facebook buys WhatsApp for $16 billion, suddenly Instagram's $1b acquisition looks like a bargain

Ok, I do have a Facebook account and I recently signed up to instagram, even though I have yet to send anything through it, but whatsapp?  This is my first visit to the site just to see what all the commotion is about. Obviously facebook is going in a direction which I already knew was one I wouldn't be heading!

Dear Producer,
When the story broke that certain meaty Hot Pockets products were filled withdiseased and unsound meat from some large meat factory called the Rancho Feeding Corporation, it was the symbolic time to make the comparison between large carelesscorporate meat packing operations, large arrogant corporate food processing operations and large corrupt corporate media corporations. They all feed you diseased and unhealthy products. 

 

You should probably be surprised that the corporate mainstream media even covers this sort of story since it is not in their best interests to remind the public that they are under attack from every side. 
 

Kill All Humans!

This is exactly why your No Agenda Show is more important to you than ever. It is your healthy solution to understanding the news and the current events around you that will affect your life in unknown ways. It is so important that you continue to supportthe show with your kind and generous contributions. Click here.
 

When you hear about the Hot Pockets tainted Philly Cheesesteak recall, have you ever wondered about the food scandals that always seem to stem from trying to cheat the public by disregarding standards, careless processing or a lazy disregard for cleanliness? Have you ever noticed that a company can recall sometimes millions of pounds of meat without blinking an eye? How can anyone afford this? They breeze right through it. Sometimes more than once. Are they gouging you so much in the first place that these companies can afford this?

Think about how that works by comparing it to what the phone companies were doing to the US Public in the 1990’s by “slamming” the public and subscribing you to long distance services you never ordered. By the time they were busted and fined they had made millions. The government oversight did nothing as every $100 in fines resulted in better sales. It was actually profitable to continue the practice while paying the fines.

 

This is the way the world works now. The public (you) be damned. And this is why yourNo Agenda Show is more important to you and your like-minded friends than ever before. Please keep this show alive with continued contributions. Contribute whatever you can afford or choose an option from the support page here.
 
Stop eating the diseased news fed to you by corporate media and support No Agenda.

Microsoft makes OneDrive transition official, gives away free storage [

Oh Microsoft, please don't feel any obligation to give away too much free space. I am sure, much like your Internet Explorer service it too will get hacked and those using it will have wished they hadn't.  The nickel and diming of additional free storage if you use the camera uploads and referrals is pathetic. When will these people realize if you are going to use a cloud service you don't want to be limited whatsoever!

Your 60-Hour Work Week Is Not a Badge of Honor

This is a great working theory but seriously, if you own your own business, keeping it alive you should not be thinking of just how many hours you put in each week but odds are 60 hours is probably nothing but normal.

No Agenda-The Pre-Show

Dear Producers,

You can count on your No Agenda Show to deliver actual news tomorrow. This is despite everyone in the mainstream media being gah-gah over the Olympics despite the US State Department’s best efforts to belittle the event because it is in Russia. That didn’t work and all you sports fans can get your fill of exciting moments in the various sports such as women’s curling, ice jumping, ski flipping, snowboard stunts, ice pole dancing, snow trampoline and hockey. It’s riveting.

 

The ice crab race

That said the show does need some Sunday support and I personally want to remind you to visit the support page here, or you can contribute any amount directly here. Please do so.

One of the interesting news items this week was the harsh rejection of the UAW Union by the workers at the VW plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The giant union, of which I was twice a member, wants to unionize the so-called transplant companies who build “imported” cars here in the USA. It may mark the symbolic end of major labor unions in the USA as they may have simply out-lived their usefulness. As a person involved in Unions most of my life, you will want to hear my thoughts about this.

 

Ok, now just stand still.

Celebrity news is big this week (and every week) as Ellen Page, in a blatant effort to get more Twitter followers came out of the closet as gay. (Does anyone come out of the closet as straight? Or ambivalent? Why not?) This revelation was all over the news because it is so important to everyone, especially Page who needs more followers. Your No Agenda Show will have none of this nonsense. Follow @adamcurry and @therealdvorak instead.
 

Guess what? I'm GAY!!
 Follow me!

In more important news, apparently the big Beluga whales have been infected by Toxoplasma Gondii, the weird cat parasite that makes people actually like cats. This has been blamed on Global warming, of course. I blame it on cats. This is an omen that says “Support No Agenda” in the morning.
 

You will OBEY!

Make sure to catch the Sunday show and contribute today.

Your co-host,

John C. Dvorak

RCMP arrest woman allegedly involved in BASE-jump from Whistler gondola

Again with the word "allegedly" in a news report.. in this case there is video so there is nothing "alleged" about this! As for the fine-yeah sure ok fine the girl for helping but to spend the time hunting down the jumper--give it a rest! If the guy were to have landed in a tree and required medical attention and/or evacuation then fine the guy big time, otherwise--nothing to see here!

No Agenda Newsletter

 No Agenda
Newsletter
Dear Producers,
Reminder, No Agenda reaches show 600 in a very few weeks and supporters can get two producer credits for any $600 contribution. This credit includes the stand-alone title, “Special Producer.” Click here to take part. We welcome any contribution for anyamount here. If you have never contributed to the show, please do so today. Please.

In the weeks ahead your No Agenda Show will be looking closely at the Heroin problem, where is the future of poppy growing in the world going to move, the health of Bill Clinton and will Hillary be able to get by without him, global cooling and the lies in the mainstream media.

 

Similar if not identical growing conditions of Afghanistan and Myanmar
found in Africa. Note Central African Republic (CAR) right in the middle. 

 
On the Thursday show look for a discussion of the new $250 million Scahill-Greenwald-Poitras website/blog that has gone live with a very questionable article and a lame photo essay.
 

Another High Budget Flop

If you’ve been reading recent news items you’ll find eye-rollers.  The one that will get your attention is the "discovery" that crocodiles can climb trees. You have to wonder how long the civilized world has been observing this creature without noticing this fact. After thousands of years of observations, someone finally notices? This sort of thing seriously makes you wonder when someone says “the science is in” or “scientists agree.”

And when it comes to the news media, its story usually changes from minute to minute as these people jump to conclusions, make illogical comments and often talk incessantly about nothing to fill time.

 

 
And the one thing missing the most is serious deep analysis. This is what your No Agenda Show does best. Many of the facts we uncover using both government and non-government sources present conclusions that make sense and are seldom if ever accomplished by well funding over staffed corporate media outlets.

Our budget is provided by you, the producer/supporter. Please continue to help your Show by contributing today. Click here.

John C. Dvorak and Adam Curry
