Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Just kidding, I use an electric razor, and it showed up :)
Tonight, the knock at the door came and it was the Fedex Santa once again bringing goodies to all the good boys and girls that shoved AdSense in their visitors faces all year long.
Everyone knows I've been naughty, but this gift sure is nice!
The gift specs are as follows:
* 3.6 inch TFT digital photo frame
* 960 x 240 TFT screen, 16 mega-color
* Picture: JPG format
* Audio: MP3, WMA, WAV and records WAV itself
* Video: ASF only
* Media: Internal memory and SD card, comes with sample slideshow in memory
* USB 1.1 interface
* Power: 4 AA batteries or USB 5V or AC/DC power adapter
All I can say, in my best Borat accent, is...
"IT'S VERY NIIIIIICE! I LIKE! HIGH 5!"
Thank you Google, well done ;)
Happy Holidays to everyone at Google and especially AdSense Advisor, Matt Cutts, Adam Lasnik, Vanessa Fox, Brian White, Phoebe Ho, or as Santa would call her, Phoebe HO! HO! HO! and if I missed anyone I'm sorry, you'll just have to send me hate mail.
Oh yes, Happy Thanksgiving to all you turkeys too ;)

When I first opened the box, I thought yipee, Google have given me something useful again.
Then I waste an hour trying to get it to work.
Brother (fellow partner in crime) comments that after completely s£$£"ing us over this year, a picture frame is a bit of an insult.
I still have to remind him that big G send us 80% of our traffic, and without them, we don't have a business, so they kind of balance.
Now it works, I'm going to fill it with images reminding me of all the things I want to get done next year, and places I want to visit.
One nice thing about the low resolution is that photo-shopped images can look pretty convincing. So I've got one of a Virgin 747 taking off from Saba. For anyone in the travel business, I think it's a nice reminder about doing the impossible!
The Google logo might be a reminder that they are still a very important part of what we do, but the rest will be down to us....
(UK AdSense and Adwords Accounts started June 06. $10,000 on Adsense in October, £3,000 on AdWords in October)
It seems I appear in G's database twice - once with my name spelt wrong. Surname, Business Name and Address are all correct.
Now I'm getting concerned in case Google's error leads them to believe I have opened multiple accounts - which is certainly not the case.
Should I let them know? Should I send a pressie back? (If so how do I prise it away from my wife?)
It contained a european two pin adaptor which was nice but useless in the UK so if mains power is needed it will need a european to UK adaptor on top!
Mine contained a multi-country adapator that included a Uk Three Pin 13A plug and 2 different 2 pin plugs!
I've been unable to install the cd without errors, and haven't managed to save any new images successfully - but I'm still dielighted with the present. $75 sounds about right (assuming I can get it to work)
