external Yahoo! Absorbs Yet Another Startup to Help Improve Flickr —Ptch Blog

yahoologoYahoo is on a roll. First it was IQ Engines, then LookFlow, and now movie-making app Ptch has been picked up by the Marisa Mayer run company.

This acquisition is a bit different, however. Whereas both IQ Engines and LookFlow are apps specializing in image recognition and will, presumably, be used to improve Flickr search and organization, Ptch is a movie-making app. Ptch users have until January 2nd to pull their Ptches off the server before the app goes down.

    I’m sure Marisa and Ptch (who thinks of those retarded names?) will find many new and creative ways to ruin Flickr some more.
