For crying out loud, people, stop trying to use my IP address to figure out my location. It doesn’t work. It never works.
 
Today I got a “helpful” text from +Gmail  that they had blocked my phone from accessing my email because of “suspicious login activity”. Apprently someone in British Columbia had tried to login to my account. It turned out that person was me. I hadn’t suddenly been transported to BC, it was just that Google’s geolocation was off by 4000 km.
 
This isn’t just a common problem, it’s a constant problem. My home internet address has been located in Montreal, Toronto and New York City – all wrong. Websites are always showing “local” ads for the wrong region, or in the wrong language, and any warnings about suspicious activity based on IP geolocation are 100% guaranteed to be incorrect.
 
IP geoloction just doesn’t work. I wish everyone would stop using it.

+Elon Musk  You must be joking. Did you really name your new rocket the V2?

Will it land only in London?

But life's forever dealing in hurt
Now life's like death without living
That's what life's like without you"
