Do you know which location is correct? Geobytes shows freeside to be
in Glendora,CA with certainty 90% and when i use it as my exit node,
news.google.com shows stories for Canada.

Last month i had an exit node which ip2location put in New York, while
geobytes thought i was in Norway and gmail just couldn't tell.

None of these database are 100% right unfotunately.
