LOL! I like the terminology for 'squeaky wheels'...
I was asking Animas about Mac software about 2 years ago. "Oh, yeah! We'll
have it! a lot of the guys in our development department are Mac users...
Yada yada yada..."
But, alas, no action yet. I email, I write I even call. But it's down to
this: The first company which comes out with Mac software, I will go to at
the time of MY upgrade, so we'll see who really does "Think Different".
