Yahoo's (YHOO) startup M&A spree continues with the acquisition of GhostBird Software, developer of iOS photo apps KitCam (a camera replacement app with Instagram-like filters) and PhotoForge 2 (a relatively advanced photo-editing app). Not too surprisingly (given Yahoo's history), GhostBird has pulled the apps from the App Store, and says its employees will be joining the Flickr team. The purchase bears a resemblance to Google's acquisition of Nik Software (developer of the popular Snapseed photo-editing app). (Flickr overhaul) (Google+ photo updates)
