So am I the only one who it took a few tries to figure out how to turn it off and on? ;)
Very cool that it included battieres. Thanks Google :)

Yes thanks, we got two for some reason! I only got to keep one of them though. :(
FWIW: We spend very little (practically nothing) on adwords and do OK on adsense, but some way off fed ex club.

Gues what.. I got two :-)
| 3:06 am on Dec 23, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Was this a adwords or adsense gift?
I got one to my adsense address

>> For high Adsense volumes we probably should be sending Google a gift.
I don't like this kind of philosophy. Google are making money FROM your website, they just happen to be sharing a large portion of it with you. But remember this, without our content, they wouldn't be making a dime on AdSense.
That's not to say we shouldn't be happy - I am... but I don't feel like I owe them anything. They provide me with some checks in exchange for advertising space (which I bet converts very well because my site sells items and it in itself converts well.) But it's good business, not a free favor.
That said, I'd share a glass of champaign with them any time! :)

Recieved mine several days ago. Must say like it better than the towel last year. It did change my mood right after the lights quit working about 2 hours after I got it. Mood light worked for me!
| 6:00 am on Dec 23, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I got mine yesterday! My adsense account was disabled before 45 days and its good to still get the gift.

Got mine today here in the uk....Dinky little radio, could become a collectors item in the future?
| 6:43 pm on Dec 23, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I got only one :(
And I have both, Adsense and Adwords accounts :))
| 10:14 pm on Dec 23, 2004 (gmt 0)|
So some UK peeps are getting these then, if I don't get one im going to cry :¦
| 10:37 pm on Dec 23, 2004 (gmt 0)|
theres a couple on ebay already
| 1:15 am on Dec 24, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Nothing here .. but then again, I'm fairly new to AdSense.
| 1:17 am on Dec 24, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Yep....I see bids over 80 dollars for google radios on ebay.
| 1:40 am on Dec 24, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I wouldn't trade my radio for a pot of gold. Man alive AdSense has been good to me. I love their present, I love their service and so does my family!
Thank you Google for the wonderful present, but surely it is I who should be sending you a present.
Best wishes and happy holidays to all at Google and WW,

These puppies are going to be future antiques....I'm storing mine safely away in the loft between the regency chaise longue, and the Jackson Pollock.

Got mine this morning. Though made in China, the instruction booklet bears no Chinese. It is the most innovative present I have ever received.
| 4:03 am on Dec 24, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I haven't received mine yet :(
And yes, I see the irony in that ;)
| 8:58 am on Dec 24, 2004 (gmt 0)|
80 $ but it is a waste to sell it. I wonder what the UPS club got Google branded LCD :-(. Also I have heard Tribal Fusion send Chocolates etc.

Have we had an answer in this thread yet about the minimum adsense earnings required to receive a radio?
Has anyone earning < $1000 per month received one? How about < $500 per month?
| 11:19 am on Dec 24, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Thanks GGL, Nice touch
got mine in the post this morning (UK)
Merry Christmas all
| 11:34 am on Dec 24, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I can confirm that one UK account earning less than $4,000 (not me) got the radio.

I just wanted to say I got mine here in Canada today - Shipped on Dec. 17 according to the waybill.
I'm pleased as punch to get it! Wish there was a phone number I could call to thank someone personally for it. Awesome, brilliant little gift.
| 9:32 pm on Dec 30, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I also received the gift today. Western Canada.
| 10:49 pm on Dec 30, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Ditto here in Canada. Two of them for some reason.
| 12:19 am on Dec 31, 2004 (gmt 0)|
Haven't gotten mine in New Zealand yet :(. Starting to think I won't get one :(.
| 2:59 am on Dec 31, 2004 (gmt 0)|
I think the present likely has to do with annual total. Since Google loves round numbers I would guess that the UPS club is $10,000/mo and the Christmas-present club is $100,000/yr.
The mood light is cute but better than that is the 30" Apple Cinema Display I'm currently working on... which was the real Christmas present Google bought me. ;)
| 11:19 am on Dec 31, 2004 (gmt 0)|
"...the Christmas-present club is $100,000/yr."
Definitely not the case.

I read all y'all's posts and since I am still out of town for Christmas, i called my home town and was told by a neighbor I had a box from California that was left at my gate. She had it at her house and I got her to open it for me. She was amazed that I was so excited about a clock radio. I told her that it could have been a rubber banana and I'd have been just as excited to be so honored to receive one from Google. Yes, I agree....the gift is not just for those w/ over 100K annual for 2004.
I do have an Adsense account that has done better and better every month as I read and learn here and elsewhere. My Adsense code is on about 5 sites that I own, with 3 of them responsible for the bulk of the earnings.
Anyway--in my excitement over the GoogleGift, I went to the Amazon homepage and did a chunky 'one-click' contribution to the Red Cross in honor of Google.
Thanks Google for the gift and the recognition.

|I got mine, and I'm not in the UPS/FedEx club.... yet. |
Anyone mind telling me what the UPS/Fedex club is?
