On the "DuckDuckHack: Toward Better Instant Answers!
" page it gives the examples of using a query "currently in theaters".
When I try this I get movies being shown in California whereas I live in New Zealand - a long way for an evening out.
Does this work in the USA or is the whole feature a bit defective ?
More generally I'm interested to know to what degree DDG uses your location in making search results. I've noticed that search results seem less aware of where I am than those from Google and I assume this was because DDG was deliberately not taking my IP address into account for the purposes of privacy but if that's the case how is "currently in theaters" ever meant to work ?
tl;dr ? To what degree do DDG search results take account of ones location ?
