Yahoo! on Tuesday said it acquired the startup behind an iPhone application that lets people know if nearby venues are like places that suit their tastes.
Yahoo! did not disclose financial terms of the deal to buy Alike, which will work with the faded Internet pioneer's teams in San Francisco and at its main campus in the Silicon Valley city of Sunnyvale.
"The Alike team created an app that focuses on personalization -- using the restaurants and places you like to find the ones you'll love," Yahoo! said in an email confirming the takeover.
