Alfred is hungry and thirsty. He wines and dines millions all over town(s). He’s also just been bought by Google.


Google has acquired Clever Sense, creator of the “Alfred” app for iPhones, which launched last July. Alfred works like a digital butler by recommending restaurants and bars based on the user’s location, tastes and preferences.


Since buying Clever Sense, Google has launched the Alfred app for Android smartphones, as well.


Does Alfred escort you around town? Or do you pick your own hot spots? We’re just curious if algorithms beat good old trial and error.
