Doubt that I'm the first, but this is sure early compared to last year when I was sitting in the bathroom feeling all rejected with a razor blade waiting to open a vein if that Google gift didn't show up the day before xmas.....

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 ;)

My kids got mine working for me, I like it. Something about putting the batteries in it and hooking it to the PC with that USB cable thing. I've got it on the mantle rotating pictures, quite a conversation piece and the batteries seem to be holding up, always a plus.

Got mine yesterday (tho the fedex guy tried to deliver it Friday). Very cool - I have it rotating pics of the family, and my new-born baby :D

Cheers Google!

My google earnings are alot lower this year sadly, so maybe there is no gift coming for me, I'm in the UK and see others have got their gifts?

I'm UK. I got one last year, though not the year before. My adsense earnings are pretty high, but I also put a few K through adwords each month as well... Dunno if that's got anything to do with it.

Two turned up together!

(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?)

I'd forget about sending the present back...i doubt they would ask you to do that but i would certainly clear up the misspelt name issue with them.
Just mention the name thing to them and leave all other questions to them.

I just received a Christmas card from Google today, but no gift. Maybe I do not earn enough to get a gift.

I got the gift today but i don't know if i will use it, it's a small screen that you can't really see from a distance but can't complain about something i paid nothing for so thanks to google.
Seems to be from China although i haven't examined it closely enough to check for marks but the "english" in the instructions shows it certainly wasn't made in the states!
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!
To clarify the opening post made by incredibill, it states it shows MP4 (M-PEG 4) video which means it should play all DiVX. XViD and possibly Nero H264 encoded movies, haven't tested it yet though!
Customs certificate states it is worth $ 75. A 1 GB SD Ram card pluggd into it should let you watch an entire movie on it in good quality so could be useful for travelling on the plane,train or ( if you are not a premium publisher as i am not ) , the bus!

I got an error when tried to load some JPG pics, but it was fixed when I use the software that comes with it to convert the files (really don't know what it does but the files remain JPG format after the conversion). The batteries ran out so quickly. It'd be nice if the batterries recharge itself when the frame plugged into the electric outlet.

I just got a card but no gift yet. Has anyone gotten a card and a gift, or does a card mean no gift? I got gifts the last two years.

I got a blue google unsigned card and the digital frame in one package . I think it is unlikely that they send you a present separately if you just get a card.

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)

I make about $1,500 per month, got a gift last year but so far nothing this year.
