    Adwords only...

    I don't see what the big deal is- these little gifts are kinda cheap anyway.

    I don't undestand why people go so crazy for this crap. :rolleyes:

    Are your accounts setup as individuals or businesses?
    I just wondered if it was a corporate thing.

    What if I took a dump and slapped a Google sticker on it...would anyone want that?

    I'm just trying to see if there's a demand for such an item. :p

    Say it's Matt Cutt's poo, and you'd be sure to move the decimal point to the right a bit. Just read the comments in his blog, and you'll find there are plenty of people desperate for a little...

    I got one (only the cheapy, no headphones)... but I'm still chuffed. Great psychology. Better gift than I would ever get from the company I used to work for.

    I got the 'royal' treatment - And yes the mouse works. Last year was the Radio-LightShow.

    I don't do adwords, only adsense.

    With a small gesture, and a small investment, they can put a smile in their advertisers and publishers face, feeling that they work with the right company. Excellent marketing move!!!

    I think that just goes to show the difference in class between the two organizations. Or maybe just the difference in size.

    I did, but it is a wild one. A bit crazy speed wise. It's all over the place.

    To ge it working I suggest the following: RTFM, or press the little button on the USB transciever while holding the mouse near by.

    I didn't read the manual and it took a good 5 minutes to figure it out. It was like a little puzzle. It is a craazzzzy mouse man, the pointer goes all over the place.
