Google has nabbed yet another software company. This time out, Mountain View has gotten its mitts on Clever Sense, the makers of Alfred, a location-based restaurant / bar / club recommendation app for the iPhone and Android handsets. No word yet on exactly how Google will integrate the app maker, but the software giant said in an official statement that it plans to "provide even more people with intelligent, personalized recommendations for places to eat, visit and discover." If it can help us find a good burrito in New York City, we think we can get behind this deal.
