Re: [IP] Life scan Interface cable

Hmm, excellent idea Dave. I have a Keyspan serial-USB converter that I used
with my old Palm III. I imagine this will work as well as the converter you
bought from MacMall. I'd like to hook up my meter (One Touch Ultra,
hopefully the new Ultrasmart soon!) to my flat panel iMac.
