    if you go online in bermuda, do you have access to the same sites as you would in the uk? is google google and youtube youtube or do they change depending on where you are?
    apart from censorship i mean. strange question maybe but i find it hard to believe that if youre big on youtube youre world famous all of a sudden

    Some things change depending on your location.

    Youtube will try and serve you local crap.

    Ad sites will tell you that hotmissybitch23 comes from Rzeszów (a dreary place in Poland - no hotmissybitch23s there).

    Google has a different homepage (well the language changes, nothing else).

    Nothing really significant except if you go to a fucked up country - where censorship starts playing a role.

    Weirdly, because my companies data centre is in Zurich internet sites always detect me as being in Zurich - unless otherwise stated it takes me to Google Switzerland, MySpace Schweiz, Swiss Facebook etc... It's pretty annoying...

    Also because it they see me as being in Switzerland the advertisements are different - when I log onto BBC News home page, there's always ads for really expensive Swiss watches on it - that certainly don't happen in the UK!

    Swiss watches aren't cheap in the UK, I just mean you don't get the ads when you log on in the UK...

    I like the sound of your deal though, I'll take one, maybe I'll just I'll send them the address to send my lady-watch to and see what happens...
