Check if device is online or offline

I have hunted around, but can't seem to find an answer to this.  I am
working on an app that will be using local storage through the SQLite
DB, but will also be syncing to a remote server.  If the device is
online, I would like to be able to sync to the remote server, and if
it is offline, I would like to store an event that indicates there is
data to send once the device is online again.  But I can't seem to
find in the API how to query for the current online/offline status of
the device.  Is there something like this available?

 See ConnectivityManager and getActiveNetworkInfo().

1. notification bar improvement

It would be nice to have a long-press option for notification bar
items, allowing for archive/reply/delete/etc for gmail, and other
functionality for native apps. Long-press to clear individual items
from notifications would be handy as well.
