Apple to design for diabetics


Amy Tenderich writes about iPod design for diabetes care:

Why, oh why, do consumers everywhere get the most “insanely great” little MP3 player, while we whose lives depend on medical devices get the clunky stuff of yesteryear?

Excellent idea Amy! Sure hope that Steve bites. And while at it, diabetes software can use an upgrade as well.

Reminds me of Cheetah: First half of 2006 a small team of students have been working on Cheetah—a fully distributed self-learning (smart) peer-to-peer community-based diabetes open source software system.

Oh, how nice it would be for my daughter with diabetes to have the two “marry”.
