Yeah you get all this crap, except the handshake, or
maybe my test scores weren't high enough to get the
handshake... who knows.  Almost every cert i've gotten
has sent out similar crap though, cards and pins and
such, it wasn't just MS.  

CompTia is charging for that stuff in a round about way
now.  I got the A+ back in 1997, and they give me all
the extra crap.  A friend of mine just took the exams
the other day.  They sent him his cert but the wallet
card was paper.  Within the package was a form he could
fill out and send in (along with a decent sum of cash)
to be a member of the CompTia Professionals Group.  If
he joined that he would then get an A+ pin and a
plastic wallet card :)  What a bunch of bullshit the
certification industry has become.
