OK, if Google knows so much about me, why is it giving me all result pages in Spanish this morning and taking me to Google Mexico? After all, the cookie on my machine hasn’t been erased. They have all my history. Have I ever done a search in Spanish? No. Have I ever translated something from English to Spanish? No. Have I ever visited Google’s Mexico site at http://www.google.com.mx ? No.

So, why, when I want to go to google.com, does it redirect to google.com.mx and give me everything in Spanish?

Hey, Matt Cutts, can you tell the various teams around the world to PLEASE pry into my privacy details somehow and figure out that I speak English, that I want to go to the real Google site (search results are different on the Mexican site than on the English one)?

Oh, and Google isn’t alone. Yesterday I attended a workshop where they were using MySpace. It switched to Spanish too, even though the computers were all setup in America and had English operating systems loaded.

Same thing happened when we were in Germany and Switzerland too.
