this is probably more fit for the Foo section, but only hard core adwords advertisers can truly sympathize with me...

I got the Google Fridge about 1.5 years ago, and the damn thing stopped working! the power cord still works, but my fridge aint getting cold anymore. I love this thing...how do I fix it? I'm assuming sending it back to google for repair is not an option:)

Did you try searching "appliance repair" (on Google, of course!)?

Hubie, are you still here in town? Call MasterTech. It's in the phone book.

Of the 5+ fridges that I know of via various colleagues... all have broken. But, personally, I got so used to the darn thing that I kept the Google one as a souvenir which sits right next to the "real" mini fridge I bought to keep my bevs cold. :)

I'll sell you mine for $50 bucks plus postage, never plugged in.

I was renting this house and was going to buy it but the owner got foreclosed on. Well I didn't have the time to get the deal together and moved out and bought an even more expensive house (that was a better deal). Well I bought a new stainless $1,200 for the rental and when I took the new digs it had a $1,500 refrigerator in the kitchen.

So now I have a full size $1,200 beer refrigerator in my 1,000 sq ft office on the lower floor.

On second thought you can't have it, it's kinda just an art piece now and I have gotten attached to it.

If i get pissed at big G I can just kick it an get out my frustration, it lives under my desk.

May be next years gift should a boxing bag. Maybe they can screen Larry and Sergei's face on one site and the logo on the other ;)

Funny this topic came up. Ironically, I just got a Fridge from Google yesterday. Guess I'm about 2 years behind or a really slow delivery service.

I think it's a fridge dump.

That was cold!

And no Hubie you can't have it, I have become too used to yelling profanities at it.

Besides that is where I keep my big bottle of Jack.

What a high opinion of your nephew. I hope he doesn't visit WW. :)

Got my new mini frig. yesterday. Hope it last at least for one camping trip this fall! Like the cigarette lighter plug option. How long DID it last for you?

I got two mini-fridges a couple years ago, before we got out of PPC. One still works and the other seems to have a faulty power supply. If you want to buy it (the latter one), I'm open to offers.

You'd think that given my 3 Million Clicks Google certificate, I could have gotten something better than two puny fridges.
