A 32 MB removable disk drive. I hope that makes sense but it is about the size of a chapsick and works on the USB port. It is very cool :)

oh and best part, it says Google on it.

Nice!

As an Adsense Publisher, I probably won't get such a nice device. ;-)

All I got was a Google Christmas card --- and when I opened it up, it didn't say anything at all! Just an embossed 'Google' at the bottom of the card!

aka USB Flash drive. Very handy device if you haven't used one before.

My Adwords clients get to keep the Googlegoodies. :)

I only got a card too. Last year I was worth a blanket, and I spent about 5x more this year. Negative reward system? :)

Last year I got a coach luggage picture frame. This year zip. Of course we saved about $3200 when Google lowered the minimum bid & we increased out clicks by about 12,000 too.

So let me say thanks Google & Don't worry about a card...

ouch...

I would still have faith though, another 3 possible working days for your delivery to arrive.

maybe you should have done some adsense on your sites, as they seem to have got theirs some time ago :)

I wouldnt feel too bad, I'm still waiting for mine, and have full faith in G on delivering.

Not sure about anyone else, but I just got a couple of rather groovy Mathmos balls (mathmos.com). Very google-cool!

That's extra nice as I thought they'd missed me out - wahey!

feeling your pain on that one, but we still have a few days until xmas, so I havn't lost hope.

The only gift I've gotten from any paid search place was from LookSmart and considering they are drowning like crazy while the others are apparently making money hand over fist makes you go Hmm...

Glad you all are enjoying the gifts! :)

And to those who have not yet received one, well, I sincerely hope something arrives in today's mail. Or tomorrow's.

I don't know the details of the gift giving 'algo'. The only thing I know for certain is that it doesn't extend to AdWords employees - so you all are getting some Google stuff that I have never even seen. Cool!

Now, about those Google swim trunks, mentioned in another thread...

We got some T-shirts a while ago. We demanded them as compensation for a billing error. ;)

I thought most people in the office would like baggy so I ordered XXL. Holy Moley - those things are big enough to wrap a cow in! I'd been reading there was a weight problem in the states and that there will be law suits, but I never imagined anything on this scale :o

Bah, humbug!

A few thousand dollars in adwords and I've yet to even get a lump of coal from Google~

Obviously a conspiracy...

Hmm I think we would be in the 100k range - so it's right up there with a good ole fashioned military hammer. If they would only put down a deposit on my new car then I might add some more search terms :)

Heh heh. About 100 cubic metres of air!

Mind you, they make excellent camping gear. This year I will not need to rent a tent!

What is X-mas? I know everyone trying to be "pc", but there is no such thing as "X-mas". You could use "holiday" in the title or better yet, just skip the descriptor and call it a gift.

And cash registers are ringing all over the world because "X" was born.

Thankyou - I got a scarf.

I am very proud of this and have not taken it off for a week.

It made me remember that I had nothing last year, and I have 60 websites now - and that google make me a lot of money.

I actually thought I should have sent them a present - not the other way around - lol.

Thankyou

Lady Lea

ps I now have 4 redundant scarves, go to ebay and start bidding!
