http://screenrant.com/star-wars-8-luke-skywalker-confirmed Does he or does he not look like Sir Alec Guiness (as Obi-Wan Kenobi) in the original #StarWars   #Episode4 ?!? Related trivia/factoid: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2488496/trivia?item=tr2503017 Says Mark: "Intellectually, I know I’m the same age as Alec Guinness. Emotionally, I’m thinking, 'Are you kidding me?!? I still like The Three Stooges and the Rolling Stones. How could I be old?'" #touche  
Mark Hamill confirms his return as Luke Skywalker for Rian Johnson's Star Wars: Episode VIII and is regrowing his beard for the part.

Want to learn about how to programmatically upload & download files to/from +Google Drive using #Python  ? Check out my holiday gift to you, a video that shows you just how to do that in addition to introducing +Google Developers to the new API. There's also a bonus interview with a Drive engineer on the thoughts behind this new release! #GoogleDrive   #GoogleAPIs  @Google http://goo.gl/EySSQV
 
Google Drive: Uploading & downloading files plus the new v3 API redux

The latest episode of the Launchpad Online (http://goo.gl/kFMUa6) developer video series introduces developers to uploading and downloading files with Google Drive. In addition, viewers will hear about the latest Drive API (v3) and its improvements over the previous version (v2). Finally, the code walkthrough will also include a sample migration of a simple script from v2 to v3. Take a look:

This episode features #Google engineer +wesley chun walking you through the code sample and giving a migration how-to that will get you started in building or upgrading your own solution with the Drive API. New to the video series? We share technical content aimed at novice Google developers… current tools with a little bit of code to help you launch your next app.

ICYMI, a new #GoogleDrive  API release happened on Monday that streamlines the service and gives better default performance. http://goo.gl/cR151b
 
A leaner and faster Google Drive API

Today, version 3 (v3) of the Google Drive API is available, providing developers with a leaner, faster by default, and more consistent interface to Google Drive. This latest update is designed to be easier for developers who are integrating with Drive for the first time.

Thought you've seen all the #StarWars trailers? You may have missed this one from Japan that was released yesterday(!) (http://youtu.be/SdAUiyeJMFQ) as well as this Korean TV spot (http://youtu.be/wo5NtTMzsIY) from a few weeks ago, both of which have new scenes not previously seen before.

Sigh +Björn Petersen ... so bad! :-) On another note, no need to keep looking out for material as people quickly mashup combo super trailers, like this one (http://youtu.be/PP9L_ChhmYI) which unfortunately leaves out the one big First Order scene in the Korean TV spot.

Our first real rain... hopefully a sign of things to come. I wouldn't mind all the traffic if we lose the (current) reason why we're called the "Golden State." #droughtbegone
