The MacJury’s second holiday gift guide panel did their best to one-up their predecessors. Did they do it? From wearable gear to the Internet of Things, audio equipment to home security and more, we have another great set of unusual and sometimes off-beat gift ideas from the panel of Melissa Holt, Joe Kissell, Steve Sande and host Chuck Joiner.
This edition of MacVoices is supported by Eye Chart Magazine: Putting Apple and Tech News In Focus.
Chuck Joiner is the producer and host of MacVoices. You can catch up with what he's doing on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, App.net and LinkedIn.

Melissa Holt is an Apple Certified Support Professional who runs a Mac consulting business with her husband near Boulder, Colorado. She’s been moonlighting by writing tips at The Mac Observer since 2011, and in what remains of her spare time, she hikes and plays way too many iOS games. Feel free to follow her on Twitter—she’s @melissacholt.
Joe Kissell is the author of over two dozen Take Control ebooks, as well as a host of print books. He is a senior editor for TidBITS, and a Senior Contributor to Macworld. Keep up with him if you can on his personal blog, JoeKissell.com, and on Twitter.
Steve Sande writes way too much. He’s the Hardware Editor at TUAW, and recently logged over one million words written for the blog in just over three years. He’s written a number of books for Take Control Books and Apress, is married to a rocket scientist, and spends his days being bossed by a cat. You can watch what he says on Twitter, and see him every Wednesday on TUAW TV Live.
