Yahoo's latest acquisition is Incredible Labs, the company behind personal-assistant iOS app Donna. Most of the seven-member Incredible Labs team will stay on with Yahoo, though the iOS app will no longer be available for download. Donna, for those who aren't familiar, has been providing traffic updates, weather information and other tips to help you through your daily schedule à la Google Now. Yahoo will likely use Incredible Labs' technology to create a similar app of its own -- we can definitely see it pulling in data from Yahoo's much-loved weather service, for instance.
