    It's worth remembering that the internet is not flat, or the same everywhere in the world.

    I've seen that when I'm in Vancouver Canada at my brother's house, using my laptop from the U.S. It drives me a little nuts. As soon as I get back to the states, it fixes it self. I suspect google is looking at your IP address and thinks you are in Canada.

    Perhaps you should figure out your internet address and try to inform Google of their bad ways.

    Is it possible that you inadvertently set a cookie that Google is using to determine your location? Just a thought.

    If you haven't already tried, I'd recommend you purge cookies.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Im in Ireland and sometimes I get Google in German (im not the only one). I think my problem has something to do with the location of my ISP's equipment or partnerships.... thats what I have come up with?
