    It will take more than “choice of colors” to create an ipancreas. (apple came up with the computer color scheme about 8-10 years ago. Goodness, how they make everyone else seem like followers). It’s all about the user interface. Using an iphone/ipod is so intuitive and fluid unlike the omnipod personal diabetes manager/glucose monitor for example, which feels cheap and whatever the antonym for intuitive is.

    On defense of the omnipod, the idea of taking the tubing away is awesome.

    You are instrumental in starting a brilliant revolution here! wahoo!!!! way to go!!!!! Along with lots of others (I hope) I’ll be thinking about ideas to submit to counter and/or improve the daily grind of dealing with a portable pancreas and blood testing, etc. etc. etc. (and none will focus on the darn color of a blood testing device .) I am sure there will be lots of ideas expressed to drive the D industry forward in truly helpful ways. what fun!

    i would have to say that different color plastic is hardly an attempt at better technolgy choices. although i am intrigued at new devices in the near future but why since they have an app. for just about everything for the iphone and other smart phones can they not make an app to log your glucose food etc while out working eating so i don’t have to remember or write it on a napkin and lose it.

    I could care less about color choices. Get me something better than the Omnipod, which I found completely un-usable and impractical, and maybe I’ll consider turning in my trusty syringes. For now, injecting keeps life blissfully simple and low-maintenance.
