Google's new _forced_ location aware search results - FAIL!

I'm often searching for (hardware) reviews and such. I don't want the result list biased for Toronto/Ontario/Canada. I want results from everywhere in the world, even ones in a different language.

Seriously, maybe I'm odd, but here's how I shop:
1. Search worldwide for all products meeting requirements.
2. Review worldwide the top candidate products.
3. Locate best place to buy chosen product - does not have to be local.

At least Bing still gives the option to get all results.

My top 3 current peeves where companies think they are doing the consumer a favour, but really end up making life more difficult:

1. Rogers Cable (Canada): 'new' menu that pops up instead of guide. Doubles the time to get to the program guide, which is what I want to do 100% of the time and quite frequently.

2. Google forced location aware search results.

3. MS following Apple and tethering Win7 Phone installs to marketplace.
...cmk

The idea that I can be presented with a problem, set out to logically solve it with the tools at hand, and wind up with a program that could not be legally used because someone else followed the same logical steps some years ago and filed for a patent on it is horrifying.
