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.

Yep, Google (Adsense) sent me this.

I think I'm not allowed to post an url with information about the radio, but a picture:
[shoplifestyle.com...]

And a review:

Turn down the lights. Turn on the mood music. Now, let the light show gently take you on a journey into 7 vibrant hues and passages of soothing relaxation. This AM/FM Radio with precision quality sound, LED technology, and rotating gravity switch helps you choose just the right mood. It even has a 60 minute timer.

Rotate the radio to one side and the AM/FM turns on. Rotate again, for the LED mood lights to start. Rotate one more time when you want to turn the music off but keep the light show on. One more time it shuts off completely. Equipped with DC jack. (3) AA batteries, and adapter (not included).

Is this only for the big-hitters or do us little guys get gifts?

I'm not a small-hitter, so it might be only for bigger publishers.

Or maybe they will send it next week to publishers from the US.

Hey, I just got mine! I wonder if this means I'm a mid-range earner? Anyone get anything bigger?

Maybe next year I'll get the Google-colored Hyundai. ;)

A gift from the big G. Hope you guys are not from the UPS club? I had got a christmas card last year. Or are the gifts only limited to the US :-(

Can the ones who received a gift give us any idea about how much they earn?

More than $1000, $2000 , $5000?

I only use Adsense. I just got this special gift today. I actually feel a little uncomfortable talking about it because how often do people say, " I got a gift from {friend} did you get one too?".

Not in the UPS club (yet), but did pretty well annually.

I got mine yesterday too. I'm also from the Netherlands.

Did you had an invoice with it? I'm not sure if I have seen that.

also got mine in Virginia. we thought it was a bomb at first, since the DHL box did not indicate that it came from Google - just a San Francisco address.

I absolutely thought the same thing when I opened mine. Since the return address was the bay area I kind of assumed it was from Google. I was hoping that I qualified this year to get a gift. But I was a little wary as I opened the box.

I am ogling the horizon and most definitely see an empty space where my radio should be ;)

Hi Colintho, I'm from UK (Liverpool) but so far haven't had anything. Having said that, I've not yet managed to get a cheque either because I only just started using Adsense after signing up ages ago :-(

Does anyone know if all Adsense Publishers will be getting a free gift from the Big G? I've had my account for about 8 months...

mine claims to have "mood" functionality. I've sat here and watched the lights and they rotate completely at random.

Oh...okay...I see...the lights are to set the mood, not indicate your own mood (ala mood rings back in the 70's)

Mine's for sale... 2.00
