I haven't found a topic yet about christmas presents from Google, so maybe I'm the first one (Netherlands).

It's a Mood light AM/FM radio... If you rotate it, you can select: radio on/light on/both on/off.

Pretty nice, but also a bit useless.

Is there any truth to the rumor that keeping the radio mood light next to your computer increases the CTR by 50%?

Well, the word "Google" in discrete grey print is a bit of a tip-off...

I think it's a very nice gesture; thanks, Google!

Counting the days until we start seeing them on ebay... :-)

No package here yet but I assume it's fair play since the checks get here so fast from where they are shipped, this would be coming from the other coast...

Doesn't Google usually reward the Adwords people for spending?
I've never heard of the Adsense people getting gifts of any kind...

I've read these forums plenty of times before but never posted. So Hello everyone and nice to meet you.

We received the mood radio today from Google. I can see that no one wants to be specific about their income and I do understand that it's against the rules to share specific information like that, but I don't think we can get in trouble for sharing very general information. We get between $2000-$3000 each month. I'm guessing only the people who make in the thousands get a gift. I wondered if everyone else gets a Christmas card? One person said they did. I was very surprised to get a gift, and such a neat thing too. I wish it had a CD player on it (greedy!) lol, but I like the mood radio. It's cool. I'd like to know if you get a better gift if you make a LOT more money than what I make. Maybe Google will buy you a car? lol.

I got a card last year, and I just got the light/radio AND a card this year. I must be moving up in the world! ;-)

Thanks Google... very cool gift.

Oh how I love my little mood light,

Oh how I love my little light,

It so subtle and slight,

My little light shines colors so nice,

My little light doesn't belong to Heidi Fleiss,

My little light is so soft,

My little light looks like it has frost,

My little light has wonderful tunes,

My little light will be on in the afternoons,

My little light has a nice word,

and that word is not slurred,

but oh....oh that word...,

Is not sad or bad or terrible,

But the word that starts with a "G",

so nice and color plenty,

And I will remember the days only making twenty,

But those days have come and gone,

To days making serious braun,

Now this song will end, and I must move on,

So say THANK you big "G" and thank you for my quality deposited.

Thanks again

When I got my mood radio I set it to my favorite radio station. The first song to come on was White Rabbit by The Jefferson Airplane. I turned off all the lights and got into the groove.

My wife looked at me like I was insane.

To anyone from Google who reads this forum, thanks for the great gift and have a happy holiday.

If any of you have seen "A Christmas Story". I feel like I just won a "major award", I got really excited when the DHL truck came by today. The lamp went right in the front room window! I can feel my wife plotting it's demise already. Love it. Thanks Google!

Thanks Google, but I got one already.

For us people with seasonal businesses, I hope gifts are based on total yearly revenue instead of recent months.

Hey guys - it's Christmas. The time of giving?

It's not really the time to analyse who gets a Google present and who doesn't.. you lucky things! :-)

Season's Greetings to you all, and have a safe one.

Is this present for publisher or advertiser?
Google send me the gift using my billing address in my adword account instead of the address for receiving AdSense check.

Just got mine yesterday. It had to be based on our Adwords volume - which makes sense since we are spending a lot of money with them.

For high Adsense volumes we probably should be sending Google a gift.

Just received 2 radios from Google via DHL. I have 2 accounts with adsense and 1 with adwords.
This is for adsense as the names correspond to my adsense accounts
