Re: [IP] RE:[IPn] new pump approved

I don't think this pump will be coming home with me.    I like filling my own 
 cartridges, as I save money by doing so reusing the cartridges. I doubt this
will be an option for this thing.      I find the design deplorable as it's 
simply a way to create a revenue stream for the manufacturer at the expense of 
the patient.    It locks you into a single choice for insulin products.   No 
thanks.     Maybe my thinking will change as additional details about the pump 
surface that offset this "deficiency."

I don't think there is much info out there yet. Notsure what they mean by
pay as you go.
I like the fact that you can just pop in a cartridge, eliminates
lots of filling handling! (great for us that have arthritis also)

I would love to see more info, a video demo at least, and pricing info.

Support is going to be another issue. Have they ramped up enough to sell
these guys?
