  1. Sorry for the late comment, I am way behind in listening to your podcasts.
    Android phones since at least Android 11 have had the Google Lens app that is integrated into the camera app that does what you call visual lookup. It does a pretty good job of identifying plants and automobiles. I have not tried it with landmarks.
    Lyft uses passwordless login.
