Top Google Adwords Buyers Get Flip Camcorder

    December 25, 2007

While the rest of us were stuck with a cheap 1-gig USB card, Google’s top AdWords advertisers and search engine marketing agencies received the Flip Video Ultra Series Camcorder.

This is a pocket video camcorder with 1-gigabyte of internal storage and a 1.5-inch LCD screen. The camera costs $115 at Amazon, so it’s a pretty sweet gift, showing how much Google appreciates their business.

One wonders why everyone else got the USB drive, a huge step down from last year’s photo frame. These days, USB drives are about as ubiquitous and special as floppy disks were ten years ago.

I’d rather have gotten a tiny stuffed Google bear, or something cute, than a USB card that doesn’t measure up to other USB drives most people already have lying around.
