Have Google switched of location settings in Search Tools?

The 1st thing I do when searching is use Search Tools to set my location (generally set it to UK)

This overrides  Google using your Internet address when displaying results, or I should say, it did override your Internet address.

This morning it doesn't matter what I set my location to Google is still using my Internet address.

Have Google switched of location settings in Search Tools or is something broken?

Note: doing the same thing on IE, Chrome and FF whether signed in to Google or not.

A Brief Intro to CLV (And Why You Should Measure It)
/by +Adam Singer for +ClickZ  #analytics   #marketing  

"It seems simple enough, but is CLV is one of the most misunderstood or ignored concepts in marketing because it's inherently a long view, and our industry has suffered from shorter and shorter term tactical thinking as we rush from campaign to campaign. To adopt CLV is ultimately to take a more strategic method of measurement because it's considering the future, not simply tracking results of the past."
Customer lifetime value (CLV) is one of the most misunderstood or ignored concepts in marketing. But if given careful thought, it's a concept that will totally transform customer perception and sales.

Most lawyers know that referrals are among the best sources of new business. On the other hand, most don’t recognize the interplay between referrals, social media and search.

No matter who your clients are and how they begin their lawyer decision-making process, at some point, for some purposes, they’re going to go online.
 
As the local on-demand economy presses further into the realm of professional services, #lawyers who earn attention in these micro-moments will be best positioned to win new clients.
No matter how they begin their search, more and more legal service consumer decision-making is being shaped by micro-moments. A married couple has been goi

An extremely impressive "structured data search result here".

The trigger term "menu" seems to initiate such a result!!

Curious if others are seeing some rich & structured SERP displays here?

This is the original query I entered: "Studio Savvy menu"

Studio Savvy is a local business and a hair salon with a menu of services, etc.

As a heads up, I posted this in the "rich and structured snippets" category, but it is possible a "structured SERP" section or something (Structured answers)  may be more accurate ... ???

Primo's (Mo's to many) is the source of a lot of great memories. I grew up less than a full block away. Needless to say, I've had more than my share. If you have the opportunity to order a few hot, fresh slices, that's the way to go. Be sure to ask when the slices came out. If you're in the market for a full pie, my recommendation is square with pepperoni. You can't go wrong with a round pie either, but square is where the magic happens, particularly at the corners.

I've tried 5 of their pies: PARTY BOI, BENNETT’S BEAUTY, LEW-WOW, MR. SANCHEZ and DA DUBA. All good. Party Boi is great. Great decor too. You can tell they put in the extra effort.
