The middle of March is already upon us and another week comes to a close as many parts of the country continue to have Old Man Winter huff and puff his way, unwilling to give into the coming spring season.

Judging from our Twitter feed, last night's debut of iTunes Festival SXSW was a rousing success, with Apple executives among the ranks of those attending in Austin.

Was anyone else impressed by Apple's ninja-like skills with Tuesday's release of the iPad mini with Retina Display? Aside from one or two last-minute rumors the night before which were largely dismissed, everyone was focused on later in November, allowing Apple to pull yet another rabbit out if its hat.

Welcome to the last of our series of posts about Google's Command Line Tools (next week, we'll continue our regular series of Terminal 101s).

Google Docs is a great service that lets you stow all of your documents in the cloud, and even edit documents like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. In this Terminal 101, we'll show you how to download, edit, upload, and delete your documents stored in this Google service. Let's get started.

Happy iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c Day! We have to admit, it's been quite a week around MacLife.com, what with the release of iOS 7 on Wednesday and now new devices to drool over, savor or enjoy.
