Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

Google has acquired Jetpac, known for image recognition and processing.

Jetpac wrote on its website that it’s joining Google, and would be removing its app from the App Store in the coming days. The company will stop offering support on Sept. 15, it said. Google confirmed the deal but had nothing to add to what Jetpac wrote, a spokeswoman said via email.

The San Francisco company’s Spotter app can identify objects captured via a smartphone camera. It is also known for its City Guides app, which creates lists based on how often a subject shows up in public Instagram images.

The bitcoin system is widely acknowledged as the most successful attempt yet to create a digital currency operating outside of, and therefore bypassing the fees of, the traditional banking system. Additionally, the limited supply of bitcoins is an excellent feature that differentiates it from fiat currencies, sparing it the vagaries of inflation and deflation caused by government manipulation of the money supply.

Home is Where the Heart is with @carolinavd

For more photos from Ana Carolina’s new home, follow @carolinavd on Instagram.

“Sometimes I feel like I don’t belong anywhere, but if it’s true that home is where the heart is, then my home is now Finland,” says São Paulo native Ana Carolina Vieira (@carolinavd), who moved to Helsinki after falling in love 10 years ago. “Although I’m now officially a Finnish citizen, I often still feel as though I’ve just moved here. The midnight sun during the summer and the snowy landscapes in the winter still amaze me every time.”

As a decorator and merchandiser, Ana Carolina believes her visual aesthetic has evolved in her new home. “Long winters take up the vast majority of the year, making things naturally monochrome. Apart from that, life is slower here which translates into a clean and peaceful aesthetic,” she observes. Still, images of São Paulo’s hustle and bustle often make her homesick. “Pictures always remind me of the people and places that were part of my life back home. I start dreaming of everything I would do if I were there. To cope with being homesick, I spend time with my Finnish loved ones and try to see and enjoy the best of my new home. My dog Emma helps me a lot, too.”
