I don't know if google ran out of scarfs, but I was fortunate enough to get a google 32MB USB thumb drive in the mail today.
Thanks Google:)

Are these freebies? rewards for advertising? Genuinely puzzled - can anyone enlighten?

Got one of those here as well. I think they were feeling guilty about taking out my site in the florida update :)

I'm getting a bit suspicious now ;)

Come on, you must know why you're receiving this stuff - why the secrecy?

(assuming it's not a wind-up :) )

There is no secrecy from me.
I am an adsense publisher and I assume that the present you get is related to the amount you earn. I am guessing that it is nothing -> card -> scarf -> Thumb drive ->?

what, no towels this year?

A thumb drive is TOO spiffy of a gift. I bet my boss steals mine.

Yea, I got the towel last year and the 32mb thumbdrive this year. I think it is because we are big Adwords spenders. I want a scarf to though LOL

Thanks Google :)

I got a towel last time but I got it way after everybody else did so maybe it will still come. They must send them overseas first.

Two years ago I got an Umbrella, which was useless to me in California, then last year was the towell, which made all my buddies jealous beachside, then today I got the thumbdrive. Nice but, you can get them at Fry's for $15 (minus the Google logo). I was hoping for some swin trunks!

Hey wait a minute. That was supposed to be internal only!

what Was supposed to have been Internal?

The thumb drive or the new Algo, that escaped and went on the rampage.

Sorry couldn't help that ;)

Still jealous, got nothing, not even a card so i am expecting a few shares instead, for free of course!

Got mine today. It is very nice. My parter took it. He said because I already have a gig usb drive on my keychain he should get it. I could not argue with that. I have the beachtowl.

Well I don't do adwords, but get a pretty good check in adsense, and got my thumb drive today as well. Thanks Google!

Gee, and all I got from Adwords was a bill.

I must be missing something.

I got a card. Nice, but I thought I spent enough this year to get a Thumbdrive.

AWA, what's the threshold for those things?

Heh, it didnt help.

I dont even know who makes this drive. Do all usb drives use the same generic driver for windows 98?

I have a Google blanket :-) Looks nice folded up on the parcel shelf of the car.

And weblamer, if something arrives at work with your name on the box, you hide it as soon as possible, and never let the boss see it. Of course, if it didn't have your name on, you're done for, it's fair game then ;-)

I keep reading this thread, feel pangs of anticiption at my G presents, and I can't wait for my January travel week (business meeting w/ clients). They all keep telling me I have stuff from G waiting at their offices (G stuff is sent to billing address as there's no contact address form in the account). Makes me want to move up meeting times...
