I love my clock....
I think this time, they will give out a box of diapers and a pacifier.
LOL to both!
The radio I recieved last year quit working but started again after I beat on it a little. ;-)
This year, I'd be happy with a big stress ball that says "Google."
I'd like to see a 5% to 10% bonus like people who work for real companies see. (Well that's what my wife gets). If they would do that I would promise to face toward the Google HQ and pray once a day to the great Santa Google.
Let's stick with really useful presents. How about an Ads by Goooooooogle T-shirt?
I got nothing last year.
I hope it's something better this year ;-)
I really like my Google radio. Having said that, I enjoyed my visit to the Millennium Dome (UK webmasters will appreciate the sadness of this thought!).
It has to be a little more than a T-Shirt . . .
I got the clock. It's great but my fascination with it has worn off. The year before people got USB thumb drives. I sincerely appreciate any gift Google wants to send but a thumb drive seems the better gift.
are we getting anything for christmass?
I need a new alarm clock. One that matches the mood radio I got last year would be nice. I hope the dials on my new alarm clock light up and it comes with a verbal countdown until time to get up. "Warning!", in a bright yellow glow, 20 minutes of rest time remaining. Then, "warning", in a bright orange glow, 10 minutes of rest time remaining. Finally, in red... get moving now or burn... kinda like the Google heat map.
I'll make a x-mas deal with AS. Stop this bogus smart pricing and I'll leave YPN. Take it or leave it, otherwise YPN is in.
I don't care what they send me... I wanna present!
P L E A S E :begging posture smilie:
(see other thread)
Last year they sent me a little pocket-sized spiral-bound flip chart entitled "8 tips to optimize AdSense" or some such, while everyone else was bragging on their radios.
I have no idea why I said clock. What I mean was the Mood Radio with changing colors.
If it will be a gift, when we will received?
2 years ago I received a card
Last year I've received a mood radio (like a brick), but I received on 15 jan...
I'm curious to see if I get anything this year as I jumped ship to YPN starting Dec 1. Still using the radio from last year.
(I already got a strange Christmas gift from a company in my industry this year--a custom branded version of the game Twister. Not sure what I'll do with that!)
So Jonkee, what we should now be asking is -
What is Yahoo sending out this Christmas?
Perhaps we can spark a present war!
As a small publisher I doubt I'll get anything :(
But it's always nice to dream :P
This morning UPS called me to ask for my personal details.
Some package is for me in the "DOUANE" area.
I dont expect any package and I think is the gift from Google.
I just got a Google "Holiday" card yesterday! Maybe that will be it this year...it's the thought that counts really!
( But who doesn't like a present)
The challenging part is, once they send a present it generally becomes expected that they will do it again. If they never sent the first one all would be well and we wouldn't be the wiser;)
I worked for a company that gave INCREDIBLE bonuses when times were fat, but when times were hard and they couldn't do it there were disgruntled employees crying for their Christmas bonus. Sad really:) (This is not to say that Google is having lean times mind you! Just that if we get something we should be thankful)
I agree with TammyJo. It wasn't that long ago that we were making $200 a month for advertising space on our websites. Adsense changed all that and I am thankful. I'll take part of my income this month and buy myself a new laptop :) Thanks, G!
