Googly froogly

According to this article...

http://wired.com/news/business/0,1367,62858,00.html?tw=wn_tophead_8

...the Froogle link is supposed to be above the text widget. I'm just seeing the Web, Images, Groups, News, and More links though.

I can't even get to froogle from the 'more...' page. Is this because I'm in Canada?

Anyone else seeing the same thing?

Yeah, I'm in "Canada" (because my ISP is) and so I don't see Froogle unless I click "Go to google.com".

Cool. Didn't see that link.

Blame Canada, eh.

Blame Google. They "force" you to go where they think you should go based on where they think you are sitting (assuming that where you are sitting is where you want to go). So I always end up at a German Google regardless of the fact that I typed google.com. If I had wanted German Google then I would have typed google.de or .at.
