The MacJury convened for the first of our Holiday Gift Guide shows to help you decide what to give and what to get this holiday season. The first panel came up with a wide variety of products for the tech-oriented, the geek-oriented, and normal folks too. From video to training resources to pajamas, the panel of Wally Cherwinski, Kelly Guimont, Jean MacDonald and host Chuck Joiner kick off the holiday season.
