MacVoices #14231: The MacJury’s Holiday Gift Guide #5

Our final Gift Guide MacJury convened to wrap up ideas for the holiday season, with an eye toward last-minute shopping and difficult-to-buy-for people on your list. From items that you can order online to non-tech items, a social statement, and mobile computing, a broad range of products was covered by the panel of Peter Cohen, Jim Tanous  and host Chuck Joiner.
