Swag from Google Checkout

In what could be interpreted as a shameless bribe or merely an attention-seeking gimmick, Google is giving free T-shirts on Thursday to anyone who uses its new Google Checkout online payment system to buy something for $20 or more.

"People always ask, what makes Google tick? There are two key elements: our ongoing commitment to building great technology that empowers people like you--and of course our passion for free T-shirts," product marketing manager Dror Shimshowitz wrote in a posting on the Google Blog. "So find something you want to buy, enjoy faster checkout online--and make room in the drawer for your new apparel."
