Tag US Only Features


Historically readers of blogs or websites from outside the USA have looked a US based tech journalism and realised there was little global perspective. Personally I think this is a general problem in the USA.

One particular problem is Microsoft. Most of its products are either specifically locked in to the US market, have US only features, dribble out slowly internationally or require non-US users to select inappropriate regional settings to get things to work.

Cortana is a great example of a US centric AI that knows less and less when you leave the USA.

What would help would be stories tagged for readers. Tags could be.

USOnly – not globally available

Limited Globally – essentially only the US but some availability elsewhere

Key markets – available in most markets that Microsoft release to

Global – available everywhere

I suspect “global” will be the least used but tagging would help non-US readers.
