It's nice to finally see this in Google Drive, particularly now that I'm basically emptying my Drobos into the cloud :) 

That said, I still don't have the multiple file selection features appearing in the 4.1 version of the iOS app... I'm guessing the statement that "These features will be rolling out in the app over the next week or so." means that something needs to happen on the back-end as well.
 
The latest update to Drive for iOS is now available in the App Store. This new version allows you to select multiple files to make them available offline, star them so they are easier to find later, or organize them into folders. Plus, a single tap lets you quickly share, rename, or view file details.

These features will be rolling out in the app over the next week or so. Get the latest version in the App Store here: https://goo.gl/EPzMs0

Pretty much. I think my six-year-old daughter is already chomping at the bit to tell all of her friends about all the new apps she downloaded and the new kids videos she found on YouTube.
 
Back to school with Millennial children. :)

Things that make you go hmmm.... 

Some of these actually are pretty profound, or at least interesting, thoughts.

The partnership with Sylvania has led to some nice enhancements to Belkin's original WeMo LED bulbs. I actually found I liked the ability to tune color temperature more than I expected.
 
The third new WeMo + OSRAM product to come out of Belkin's recent Sylvania partnership is the new Lightify White Tunable Starter Set ($100), a new kit that's reminscent of last year's Belkin WeMo LED Lighting Starter Set, with the key difference being Sylvania's OSRAM Lightify Tunable White bulbs replacing Belkin's own smart LED bulbs in the starter kit.…

Dear Canadian friends. Please remember to vote. It you don't vote, you can't whine about how bad your government is, and seriously, who doesn't love to have a good whine.

Really... Show up or shut up.

If you think your vote doesn't matter then vote for all candidates or mark something that makes your vote void. Show them that you're not being represented.

Select Multiple Files in Google Drive for iOS?

I was briefly excited to see this in the update notes for the Google Drive iOS app today, but I can't seem to find it. In fact, it looks like not much has changed other than the version number.

Anybody else seeing anything I'm not here?

Games capitalists play

This is actually pretty funny, although as I understand it they're talking about a financial/tax district division as opposed to a traditional electoral district. 
Oops! Missouri businesses attempted to gerrymander their very own, voter-free district... but they forgot a person, and she might just foil their evil plans.

Gerrymandering Explained 

This is a pretty good explanation of what gerrymandering is all about and how it can manipulate electoral results.

Social Media Editor for iLounge.com, Author, IT Consultant, Dad and other stuff
Introduction
I worked in information technology consulting and project management for 15 years primarily with enterprise and government organizations. Morphed my consulting skills, combined with a fascination with Apple technology, into a writing career about five years ago so I could stay at home and spend more time raising a family. 

I currently write for iLounge.com, covering tutorials, the weekly Ask iLounge column, and feature technical articles along with the occasional product or app review and handling of social media.  I have also written three editions of iPod & iTunes Portable Genius.  

In whatever spare time I have left, I'm a stay-at-home dad / house-husband and still do a bit of work with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets as a reserve officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, which I have been involved with for 25 years.

Its a Starbucks. Not much else to say. It used to be a nicer spot to hang out before it shrunk in size -- the former expansive seating area with local artwork on display is no more, having been overtaken by another business. This is now just an average small and cozy Starbucks.

Most of the reviews here seem based on the auto service department, which I can't comment on as I've never had my car serviced there. The rest of the store seems reasonably good to me, however. This is the Canadian Tire I regularly visit and it's well laid out, the customer service counter in the centre island is much more accessible than most other Canadian Tire stores I've been to, and the staff I've dealt with in the store are friendly and reasonably knowledgable.
