I probably wouldn't have guessed it was a 2GB flash drive if the customs declaration didn't have it printed on.
The usb attachment is pretty unconventional, but it works. Comes in a nice wallet and with a card in just about every language.
I may never use it, but shown it to a few people and get a couple of responses - 'Why did Google send YOU that?' and 'That's so cool'.
If anyone is looking for a school to donate their gift cert to, the biology department at my old high school is in need of a new computer, sticky me if you want the permalink, they would really appreciate it and so would I.
I'd much prefer something that had some quality and usefulness, something that reinforced Google's brand image, rather than something that feels I like bought it from eBay for $2.
The USB drive they sent me, might work if I can be bothered installing the software on each PC I use, but being an internet professional, I already have a Cruzer.
Give me a mousepad, stress-reliever, mini-dairy, calendar any time - I have no use for 3rd-rate electronics.
(I wouldn't say no to a bar fridge!)
There is always that nice feeling when you get something. On another side, this is something to take space on your desk for some time, then in some drawer and that’s it. The laptop kit from couple of years ago was better. Little Google mouse etc… Even mood radio did it for many people I am sure.
Finally, a gift you can donate to somebody else is really cool idea.
I did $100 in cash to a local school. I'll ask them if they need 2GB usb drive. ;)
Also, I got another $100 gift cert for donorschoose.org from Yahoo today.
Great job by both G & Y!
