Re: [IP] 508 hype
From what I understand from MiniMed's Web-site,
the remote is intended for use when the pump would be hard to access. Such
as, having it strapped to the inside of your leg, in a belt on your back, etc.
etc. I thought the remote sounded like a great idea.

Big deal. I have read the posts for a week
now, and can still not figure out why in the hell anyone would want to use a
remote control to program a device that is attached to you 24-7.
I have several
suggestions for new models at MiniMed, and a garage door opener for my pump
certainly wasn't one of them. Let's start with the too-sensitive SEL button,
the breakable-yet-tough-to-use clip that attaches to the wrong end, the lack
of a "BACK" or "CANCEL" button, etc.
Anyone in Sylmar listening?
