The MacVoices Live! panel answered the question of “what are some of your favorite productivity tools for what you do” with a barrage that was wide and varied. Software, hardware, and services all took their turn. Some of the choices were no surprise, while others came out of left field from the panel of David Ginsburg, Kelly Guimont, Frank Petrie, Guy Serle, Jim Rea, Brittany Smith, Mark Fuccio, Jeff Gamet, and Marina Epelman.

Kelly Guimont is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter. Thanks to the miracle of the adjustable leg desk, she no longer needs the phonebook. Kelly writes for The Mac Observer, is the host of the Daily Observations Podcast, is co-host of The Aftershow, and yet still has more to say which she saves for Twitter and Micro.blog.
Frank Petrie is an author and contributor to ScreenCastsOnline Magazine. Follow him on Twitter and check out his web site, ympnow.com.
Guy Serle, best known for being one of the co-hosts of the MyMac Podcast, sincerely apologizes for anything he has done or caused to have happened while in possession of dangerous podcasting equipment. He should know better but being a blonde from Florida means he’s probably incapable of understanding the damage he has wrought. Guy is also the author of the novel, The Maltese Cube. You can follow his exploits on Twitter, catch him on Mac to the Future on Facebook, and find everything at VertShark.com.
Jim Rea is the brains behind ProVue, the developers of the Panorama X database. Follow him on Twitter as @provuejim.

She is a self-designated “well-rounded geek”, and holds a M.S. degree in Cognitive Neuroscience. She can be found on Twitter as @addliberator. Check out her latest project, a YouTube channel of tech tips.
Mark Fuccio is actively involved in high tech startup companies, both as a principle at piqsure.com, or as a 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 Twitter on LinkedIn.
Jeff Gamet is the author of Fresh Brewed Tales, a chronicle of Jeff’s strange adventures at coffee shops. You can find his regular updates on Twitter.
By day, Marina Epelman is a professor of Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan. By night, she shoots the breeze about using Apple devices, Soviet throwbacks, and other subjects on social media at @marinaepelman.
