Stumped on a tough decision? New Web sites are there to help.
Hunch, a site that launches for the public Monday, will consider your quandary by getting to know you, asking you a series of questions and then spitting out three decisions.
Caterina Fake, co-founder of the photo-sharing community Flickr, says she created Hunch not because people need help with emotional decisions but because it’s too tough to find smart information online. You often have to replicate someone else’s research, which is a waste, she said.
Tech bloggers seem to be pleased with the effort.
“For the most part, I was impressed, though it quickly became clear that Hunch isn’t capable of magically making up your mind for you,” wrote Jason Kincaid, a reporter at TechCrunch, a technology blog. He called the site “very clean and unintimidating.”
