    Thanks for the excellent write up. I’m hopeful that these platforms will speed up the creation of an open, extensible platform for integrating diabetes health data. Imagine if Dexcom and Medtronic decided to support streaming data using HealthKit. Of course, I’m also concerned that without medical device company involvement, it will turn into just another “walled garden” for personal data that gets used in ways we don’t completely understand (like Facebook).

    I have to say that each industry has its’ issues:
    - the tech industry tends to overpromise and underdeliver, but they eventually seem to bring the costs of things down.

    - the medical products industry (particularly when it comes to diabetes supplies) tends to massively overcharge for test strips and supplies….. my understanding is that test strips are printed by the billions at a cost of $.008 each, yet I’m being charged $1/test strip.

    The instant Apple gets a sensor to do the job properly (I’m told test strips are only 70-80% accurate anyway) I will happily dump these outrageously priced test strips
