Do you live in or around Houston?

Because if so, I can see why you would think that Google is geographically aware of searches. I think that Houston area landscapes just happen to be the most pertinent Google results on that particular search, though. I don't think they know where you are searching from.

i worry when people think the fact that some web-application "knows where I live!" is awesome.

...I just highlighted "car," hit command-shift-G, and it knew my current make, model, and registration, knew what cars I had been considering buying, knew my last 10 major purchases, and knew my savings account number and asked me if I wanted to "buy now" using direct wire transfer! Awesome!
