In this recurring column, we'll highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Google+'s photo search, SimpleImage, VueScan and a 3D printer that could save you a trip to the refrigerator.

  • Artem Russakovskii (who has one of the most HDRed portraits we've seen) explains why Google+'s best new unadvertised feature is Photo Search With Visual Recognition.
  • The $19.95 SimpleImage 6.0 [M] now features 64-bit support, Retina display support, full screen mode with resizable images, full screen browsers, non-modal slide shows, better snap-to sizing of images, redesigned movie and slides how controls, Rule of Thirds image selections and more.
  • Hamrick Software has released its $79.95/39.95 VueScan 9.2.19 [LMW] with fixes for Epson scanners, Brother scanners, Silverfast HDRi files and Canon scanners.
  • Christopher Mims reports that Anjan Contractor's 3D food printer, which prints in layers with nutritious powders, has occasioned a $125,000 NASA grant. We'd love to tell you we have a review unit en route, but we're on a strictly liquid diet of dye and pigment inks.

More to come...
