Are these freebies? rewards for advertising? Genuinely puzzled - can anyone enlighten?
| 1:03 pm on Dec 22, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Got one of those here as well. I think they were feeling guilty about taking out my site in the florida update :)
| 1:31 pm on Dec 22, 2003 (gmt 0)|
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 ->?

Thanks Tufty - finally cleared that one up!
| 3:07 pm on Dec 22, 2003 (gmt 0)|
what, no towels this year?
A thumb drive is TOO spiffy of a gift. I bet my boss steals mine.
| 3:15 pm on Dec 22, 2003 (gmt 0)|
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!
| 6:34 pm on Dec 22, 2003 (gmt 0)|
WOW! I got my drive today and it contained the entire G search algorithm!
| 6:39 pm on Dec 22, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Hey wait a minute. That was supposed to be internal only!

|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!
| 4:22 am on Dec 23, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Gee, and all I got from Adwords was a bill.
I must be missing something.
| 9:52 am on Dec 23, 2003 (gmt 0)|
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?
| 3:10 pm on Dec 23, 2003 (gmt 0)|
We spend about $5500 a month.
| 5:50 pm on Dec 23, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Heh, i got one of these drives.
My boss promptly stole it form me.
now he wants me to find a win98 driver for it. <G>
Anyone have a download site?
| 6:13 pm on Dec 23, 2003 (gmt 0)|
windrivers dot com
Hope it helps.
| 6:26 pm on Dec 23, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Heh, it didnt help.
I dont even know who makes this drive. Do all usb drives use the same generic driver for windows 98?
| 6:54 pm on Dec 23, 2003 (gmt 0)|
OK, i found it.
if anyone else needs it, here is a driver for it.
| 6:55 pm on Dec 23, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Oh, now this is cute.. once i had the drive installed i noticed on the drive was a 'google card' and on the google card was the link for th 98 software!
| 1:57 am on Jan 3, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Yep, towel last year, thumb drive this year. I spend about $6,000 a month with Google. Nice drive.

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...
