    I got my gift on Monday. For the moment I can't use it but I'm planning to get a Yonah-based notebook in January/February 2006 so these little gadgets may become quite handy :)

    I think you to be an adwords advertiser to get it. I could be wrong. Any strictly adsense people get the same gift?

    I am strictly an adsense publisher.
    My revenue average's, approximately doubling each month.
    First month (Sept): approx: 2500
    Second (Oct): approx: 5000
    Third (Nov): approx: 10000
    Fourth (upcoming for Dec): approx: 20000

    (Oh how I hope this pattern continues lol)
    I've only been with adsense since Sept. 2005. Received my first check I believe Oct 31.

    I guess you need to spend quite a lot with Adwords to receive such nice gifts ;)

    DHL, why do you ask?
    We (the wife and I) missed the delivery and had to call up to get it re-delivered which they were not happy to do. But their depo was next to a courier the wife uses at work so she got them to pick it up. We had no idea what it was, just that it was international.

    I hope I get one of those, I've been using Adsense for long enough (over two years now). I doubt I make enough money for Google to be considered worthwhile sending freebies to though. :(

    Hey,

    What countries are you guys in?

    I've received nothing but have made over $3k this year and am based in UK.

    Have I been a bad boy?

    I'm based in the UK, haven't made enough to get a cheque though since Google changed their policy of paying out the balance at the end of the year no matter how little you'd made.

    I am in the UK, and I would guess the gifts are for the $12k+ people to limit the number they send out. Maybe even $24k+ I have no idea what the cut-off is.

    $24k is only $2k a month or $65 a day or £37 of our English pounds :) When you think about it that way, any less and they would be sending out millions of gifts.

    And yes, you have been a bad boy (nothing to do with adSense) ;)
