No Agenda-The Saturday Memo

Dear Producers,

Support for the show decreased over the past three shows and we’d like to see some of our regular producers and contributors help out with upcoming show 692Tomorrow’s show looks very thin again insofar as support is concerned.

A STORY FOR YOU
Once you lose something. It’s gone. Every few days I receive a tweet from someone demanding I bring back Cranky Geeks. This was an online video show that featured famous techies discussing the news of the day. It was an upgrade from Silicon Spin that was on TechTV. It too was shuttered.


Cranky Geeks was a very well structured show but it had a following that would not support it. I made almost no money for doing the show. It was not time well-spent. Nobody wanted to advertise on it. In the end it was abandoned for lack of support. Anyone thinking that the show should be revived ignores this fact. This is what happens when support dries up.

There is zero reason to believe that a revival would change anything.

WE DO WORRY
Adam and I constantly worry that out-of-the-blue your support for No Agenda will just dry up. People will get bored and just let the show die. Since your No Agenda Show is 100-percent listener supported it will not be difficult to spot disinterest. At that point the show goes away never to return. Leaving behind a unique family of producers – an actual milieu of smart people.

 Every year during the winter a certain malaise creeps into the audience. When we ask you for support, we mean it. It’s no joke. Most support from the newsletter appears with the first two or three hours of its receipt. During this critical period last Thursday we got a total of $13.33 ($10 and $3.33) from two donations. This is out of around 14,000 who are sent the newsletter. Some more dribbled in later but was a poor and disappointing showing.

This is despite bringing you news analysis you cannot find anywhere else!

I personally attributed this to the January doldrums and to the show being too long. I hope it’s not that you all are losing interest in our news deconstruction as we head to show 700.

Please vote yes to No Agenda with a contribution small or large by clicking here.

Sincerely, Your Co-host,

John C. Dvorak

No Agenda Thursday Show

Fantastic show tomorrow

 

Dear Producer,

On Thursday we roll out show 691 which is only five shows away from Valentine’s day and your chance to call out your Valentine and receive double producer credit. And it is only nine shows away from show 700, which is an accomplishment for any podcast.
None of this is possible without your continued support. With no advertising and pure listener support we can discuss news and cultural items and trends that literally are not allowed in advertising supported media that is always worried about “brand safe” discussions with enforcers making sure the advertiser is satisfied. TheNo Agenda neutrality should be important to you. Please help this continue by clicking here and giving any amount you can afford.

Visit the support page too.
On tomorrow’s show, John will roll out his theory about the origins of the modern hugging phenomenon that has taken root in American culture. It all becomes clear after this.
Also, we’ll talk about the questionable worst blizzard in the history of the country that turned out to be a dud in much of the east coast and little more than the typical Nor’easter in Boston. Another computer model that failed.
Oh the horror! Shut down the city. Stay home. Declare martial law. Institute a curfew. What could be worse than this?
Then there is this, [graph below] solid evidence that when it comes to propaganda and re-writing history, the USA is number one. While this is good and beneficial for the prospects of the country it does not benefit the general public who have been suckered into believing government propaganda too. You hear the conversations around you, and you should be aghast at what people think and believe.
The only beneficiaries of the propaganda are the elites who know better. Your No Agenda Show is your bypass route to the truth which should benefit you in untold ways. You join the milieu of the elites and get the health and spiritual benefits of seeing the media for what it is: a mechanism trying to scare you to death and steer you into an addiction to the entertainment industry to “escape.”
False choice. Choose one. Dancing girls? Or Isis coming to kill you?
This is not a good thing and you must keep No Agenda supported to fight this trapContribute today!
Your co-hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry

PS  And you can always send checks to Box 339, El Cerrito, CA 94530. Make checks payable to the No Agenda Show.
If you want real analysis based on research and digging deeper into a story, No Agenda is your show. To keep it alive please support No Agendaany way you can. There are excellent ideas on the support page here.

Marissa Meyer wants to make Yahoo the default search engine in Safari; calls it one of the premier search deals [

You have to give the girl an "A" for effort, even though nobody uses safari anymore (do they?) so I guess it really doesn't help or hurt Yahoo!

Google's Waze is a 'stalking app,' claim US police

Seriously!! This is nothing more than a way for these cops to try and keep their money flowing in from those that don't obey the speed signs. How is this any different than being on the phone with a friend as you drive and mention you just passed a speed zone?  Give me a break... WAZE is by far, one of the best apps available, especially for serious drivers. It not only gives you notices of objects on the road, traffic, as well as weather issues causing possible driving conditions to change.

No Agenda-The Saturday Memo

Note from John C. Dvorak

Teasers for the Sunday Show PLUS some great pics

 

Producers,

Please continue to support the show especially if you have not contributed recently.
Tomorrow's Show

On tomorrow's show we’ll discuss a number of breaking stories including the coup in Yemen, the death of Abdullah, the idiotic annual Bill Gates “Letter,” further discussion of the phony Jihad John video whicheven Fox is catching on to.
In the meantime, I’ve been sorting though the photo archive and thought you would like to see some of the graphics and pics that have been sitting around for a moment like this. Enjoy!
Keeping things in perspective when we talk about the military budget.
Really?
Cripes.
Few people realize that right after the battle of the Monitor and the Merrimack, during the American Civil War, the waterways became clogged with ironclads.
Does not listen to No Agenda
What's wrong with this picture?
Promotion!! Have a use? Ask for the Original.
There is not enough of this anymore.

Apple targets Watch battery life of 2.5 hours heavy use and 3.5 hours standard use; pure standby battery life likely to be 2-3 days; CPU said to be A5-caliber (Mark Gurman/9to5Mac) [feedly]

4 Hours of active use!   Are you kidding me? Who it their right mind, knowing they would have to remove this thing from their wrist after 4 hours just to charge it up again, would ever use it?  Hasn't Apple learned anything about the sealed battery on the iphones?  Oh, that's right, they like this as it adds to the market place for 3rd party chargers and portable power storage devices.  This is just one more bad flaw in the latest hardware/design from Apple which in my opinion, is going the wrong direction--ever since Steve Jobs has passed away.
