Google has begun giving out their AdSense gifts for the 2006 holiday season. WebmasterWorld senior member, incrediBILL, said he received his two days ago. The gift appears to be a digital photo frame, he posted the specification:

How much do you have to earn to be on their gift list? $500/month? $5000/month?

Anyone figure out what kind of crazy JPG format this uses? Nothing I export from photoshop seems to do the trick, and the manual conversion program is too much hassle to do 1 by 1.

Yes, cool gift, plugged mine in, played around with the interface some. Then started to smell burning plastic. Screen turned all white and then turned off. Can't get it to cut back on. Oh well, at least my mouse etc from last year still works.

I got one of these and tried to copy pictures to it with no luck. I also managed to delete all the photos on it and now get a no file found error. Unfortunately the mini cd that came with it won't run. Is there software for this. None of the photos formats that I would expect to work does.

I can’t get images out of Photoshop or Picasa to work either. I can only transfer the original photo from my digital camera. Lame! I found a software product called TVwriter which got it to work… but its not free and is over US$50! Anyone…?

Just read here: http://www.googlecommunity.com/about15484.html that you can use the Windows XP Image Resizer PowerToy. I haven’t tried… but I will soon!

Folks, I just received in the mail what I believe to be a Google digital photo frame, but I'm not an AdSense advertiser, and I have no reason to believe that they would have a valid reason to be sending this device to me. I believe that this probably was intended for someone else and somehow mistakenly delivered to me, and I'd like to try to find out what the contact address is for the folks at Google who sent them. Do you have any information that might help me track down the appropriate people at Google that I can talk to about this?

Quoting Vincent: How much do you have to earn to be on their gift list? $500/month? $5000/month? ---- I don't know what the threshold is, but I spent around $90K this year and I got one. It’s a neat-o device, but at first it was a bit puzzling. You need to use either MSPaint, Imagicon or the crappy SunPlus transcoding software that comes with the frame to ensure the device will accept your JPG files. Oh, and turn it OFF and ON after you transfer the photos, or it will still display an error.

I got one of these too. I spent over $200k last year on Google and all I got was a stupid digital photo frame. How much does one need to spend to get an Ipod.
