Google's PhotoScan app, Snap's secret IPO plansToday we're looking at Google's PhotoScan image preservation app, Snapchat's hush-hush IPO filing and Apple's ultra-expensive coffee table book.
This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now. Google has released a brand new mobile app that essentially turns your phone into a scanner, allowing you to preserve printed photos. The app, called PhotoScan, takes a series of photos of a printed image and then removes any glare or other imperfections. The photo is then stored in Google Photos. PhotoScan is available now in Android and iOS. We heard rumors about Snapchat filing for an IPO but now it appears the company may have done it confidentially. Businesses that generate less than $1 billion a year are allowed to do so and in the same move Twitter update for when it went public is well. Finally in celebration of it's fortieth year, Apple will be releasing a coffee table book titled Designed by Apple in California. The book catalogs the last 20 years of products complete with detailed photos and just like in typical Apple fashion, the book comes at a premium price of $300.
