Take off, eh?

When I bought my new phone, I opted for the "Phone as Modem" plan.  For an extra $25 a month, I can get high speed internet access on my phone and on any computer I plug into the phone.  Sprint installed a new tower nearby just a few months ago.  I was getting 100-200 Kb download speeds until a couple days ago when they must have upgraded the tower to EV-DO Rev A.  Now I'm getting 800-900Kb download speeds, only slightly slower than our usual ISP.

Anywho, because our usual ISP has been flaky of late, I've been relying more and more on my phone for my Internet connection.

Today I noticed that google.com keeps redirecting me to google.ca.  And when I tried to go to Google Maps, it redirected me to the Canadian version.

I switched over to Microsoft's Virtual Earth and tried using the "Locate Me" function.  It shows that I'm in Toronto, Canada, somewhere near the corner of Kennedy Road and Eglinton Avenue East.

Gee, I didn't know Canada had so many cornfields.
