Why does my phone think I'm in Spain?!?

I'm currently visiting Boston from my home in New Hampshire. When I try to load www.google.com in PIE or in any browser on my tethered notebook, I get redirected to www.google.es! I haven't changed any settings that I know of. I never tether at home, since cellular service sucks there, but I noted this in PIE on the Mogul before I got my notebook tethered.

Any idea what gives here?

Well, at least I'm not hallucinating. I reckon Sprint've got something configured oddly in the Boston area.

Actually, you're in a coma and all this is an illusion. There are no such things as phones, computers, etc.

Might not be a Sprint thing. I've got Verizon and Opera Mini give me embeded ads in some odd language most of the time (Dutch, Sweedish, or something like it). PIE however gives me English ads.

google doesn't seem to redirect me, but Pandora seems to think I'm from Norway via an IP address, but I'm in Minnesota.
