On this week’s podcast we discuss the possibility of larger (or smaller) iPhones, LG’s decision not to make another Nexus phone, a scare over the security of Sky’s Android apps and Intel’s concerns over slowing PC sales. Our hot hardware candidate is the HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook.
This was the original way to check for a database field being null before putting it into a label:
if not isDBNull(dr(“FieldName”)) then
Me.label1.text = dr(“FieldName”).ToString
Me.label1.text = “”
however there is a much better and more efficient way….
Me.label1.text = dr.field(of String)(“FieldName”)
On this week’s podcast: Yahoo gives Flickr a lick of paint; Apple is pulled up for tax avoidance; Leap Motion brings gesture control to Windows 8; and Microsoft unveils the Xbox One. Finally, Microsoft’s long-awaited tablet, the Surface Pro, makes its bid for hot hardware of the week.
