Swift for Android? Fast Android emulators? Portable code between iOS and Android? I hope I never wake up from this dream . . . 
Sources tell The Next Web that Google is considering making Swift a “first class” language for Android, while Facebook and Uber mull their options

To all my sailing friends. Will you change your winter plans and visit Cuba?
 
Travel to Cuba now permitted by boat - NMMA reports that the White House Administration recently released new rules surrounding US travel to Cuba. As a part of the new rules, persons traveling to Cuba will now be able to do so by vessel whether for hire for recreation. This puts boating on parity with other forms of transportation, which initially was restricted to air travel only. Travelers must still follow all guidelines and travel purposes, however the announcement was a momentous step ...

A great interview with Steve Wozniak - one of my favorite Apple people. (And the reason for Apple computer's existence IMHO). Definitely worth listening to. He offers many great life advices.

Nice Caribbean music compilation. For those days when you miss some of the pristine water and the island atmosphere.

Dominica
Dominica is truly hikers paradise. I'm talking about the English speaking Dominica - don’t mistake it for the Spanish Dominican Republic - very different countries. The guide book calls it that Dominica is as close to the Garden of Eden as anyplace on earth...

Chrome custom tabs: smoothing the transition between apps and the web

Android app developers face a difficult tradeoff when it comes to showing web content in their Android app. Opening links in the browser is familiar for users and easy to implement, but results in a heavy-weight transition between the app and the web.

You can get more granular control by building a custom browsing experience on top of Android’s WebView, but at the cost of more technical complexity and an unfamiliar browsing experience for users. A new feature in the most recent version of Chrome called custom tabs addresses this tradeoff by allowing an app to customize how Chrome looks and feels, making the transition from app to web content fast and seamless. Learn more in our latest blog post.

Surfing "to" USA
We are making our way back to USA, and the wind is just about perfect. Downwind all the way. We left Dominica to a steady 20 knot breeze for a 240 mile journey to St. Croix (USVI) where I was hoping to make a phone call and take care of a few things back ho...

Definitely worth supporting getting this ridiculous charges dropped for Paul. 
 
Call of Action from Sea Shepherd Founder Captain Paul Watson!
"I need your signature.
Hi everyone, I can use your help with this petition to get the Costa Rican government to drop their bogus charges against me. They are trying to extradite me for stopping a shark finning operation in 2002 in Guatemalan waters. This was done at the request of the government of Guatemala. No one was hurt. Nothing was damaged. Sharks were saved. Costa Rica has a problem with that. The same courts that let the murderers of Jairo Mora Sandoval go free because the police and prosecutors conveniently lost the evidence now want to put me in prison for 15 years for saving sharks. We need to keep the pressure on Costa Rica to enable us to return to defend marine reserves, turtles, sharks, whales, dolphins and fish."

 ·  Translate
Los intereses de unos pocos que se enriquecen devastando la vida en los mares han convertido a Paul Watson, su principal defensor, en un fugitivo de la supuesta “justicia”. Y son nada menos que los tribunales del país que más alardea de “ambientalista”, los que lo persiguen desde hace doce años con una causa judicial inventada por aleteadotes ilegales de tiburones y apoyada por las mafias económicas que asesinan a mansalva y sin restricciones a l...
