Is there a way to avoid google to redirect its main page from 'google.com' to 'google.<geographic domain>'?

I've been browsing configuration settings for iGoogle and couldn't figure out how to do that.

Apparently the trick is to visit http://www.google.com/ncr (No Country Redirect)

This writes a cookie to your browser, so you won't be redirected to your country-specific Google until you clear the appropriate cookie in the future.
