Is this a new tactic? Are the wanting new publishers that badly?
In a business world money comes first so they can allow a few not so perfect reults once in a while
Well we can dream cant we
I wouldn't have parted with mine, though. I thought it was pretty neat (and the guys at the googleplex were thinking "See how easily we manipulate these fools. We need only mail each one a simple artifact from a taiwanese plastic factory once a year and all their misgivings about their earnings will be quickly forgotten. Mu-ha-ha-ha!"
A couple of years ago my better half opened a bank account just to get a George Foreman grill. He still has the account but rarely uses the grill. Men!
I use the foreman grill almost DAILY, as a matter of fact it's our second one as we wore the first one out.
The foreman grill is the perfect webmaster grill, cook lunch in 5 minutes flat so you can get back to obsessing over AdSense without getting withdrawl. I use the foreman grill for one pot cooking - throw 2 slices of bread, a slab of onion and a patty of your choice (beef, turkey, salmom, veggie) on and cook/grill/toast them all at the same time. Pull off the bread first, add condiments, slap a piece of cheese on the patty and top the cheese w/grilled onion slab and grill for 10-15 seconds to melt the cheese. Toss it on the toasted bread and eat this and think you've died and gone to heaven.
Not to mention I also make tuna melts. hot pastrami w/swiss and quesadillas on the grill all the time.
It also does a mean job on eggplant too!
If the teflon isn't destroyed I'll pay for the shipping :)
google picked up the phone and call me
I didn't get a phone call, but I did get a card in the mail pitching to put AdSense on one of my domains. I thought this is odd because the domain is parked.
Google must be starting an aggressive program to contact domain owners.
By the way, is it a clock radio everyone got or a mood radio? I got a mood radio with a light that changes colors.

4 years without any ads and still alive :-)
My rules: No ads, No popups, No emails
And guess what. It works!
No prior relationship with Google.
Seemed like a nice guy, it was to bad I had to tell him that afaik the corporate entity we are owned by feels that google takes away space from local advertising.
Last Christmas, I didn't get the clock or indeed any gift despite the fact that my Adwords expenditure was still well over $30,000 for the year.
At the time my Adsense earnings were minimal - seems Google has moved from thinking that Adwords spenders were the most important to thinking that it is Adsense publishers that they should be looking after.....
Fortunately my Adsense earnings are now pretty reasonable so hopefully I won't miss out on any Christmas gifts this year :-)

If I don't get my PIN by Friday, I will cancel my AdSense account. I don't need to wait eternity to get damn check from Google.
Shall we start a campaign for Google Ipods?
