A whole new MacJury convened for our third Holiday Gift Guide show to deliver even more unusual, off-beat and wonderful gifts that you might want to give or get. Batteries, iOS accessories, training, and perhaps the strangest gift ever suggested are among the recommendations made by the panel of John F. Braun, Michael E. Cohen, Mark Fuccio and host Chuck Joiner.
This edition welcomes our newest sponsor, Casper. Because everyone deserves a great night’s sleep. Use the code MACVOICES to get $50 off any size mattress.

John F. Braun is a software engineer with over 20 years of development experience, and has AS, BS and MS degrees in various computing disciplines, so his friends and colleagues are somewhat surprised that he?s a Mac enthusiast. Having worked in an environment comprised largely of PCs, and watching others wrestle with the horror that is Windows, he?s glad to come home to a MacBook Pro and Mac mini at the end of the day. He is a regular contributor to The Mac Observer and co-host of The Mac Geek Gab.
Michael E. Cohen has worked as a teacher, a programmer, a Web designer, a multimedia producer, and a certified usability analyst. He’s the author or co-author of several books, including The iPad Project Book, Apple Training Series: iLife (iLife ’09 Edition), Take Control of Syncing Data in Snow Leopard, and Take Control of PDFpen 6.
Mark Fuccio is actively involved in high tech startup companies, both as a principle at piqsure.com, or as an marketing advisor through his consulting practice Tactics Sells High Tech, Inc. Mark was a proud investor in Microsoft from the mid-1990’s selling in mid 2000, and hopes one day that MSFT will be again an attractive investment. You can contact Mark through his web site or through Twitter.
