I wish I may... have Mac compatible software

Scott Benner

Hello Makers of various insulin pumps, CGMs, and meters.  How are you?  I wanted to drop you a note and say that we really appreciate all that you do!  Your inventions are quite literally saving us (well those of us with good insurance) so I feel just a little weird complaining but nevertheless here I go.  


Not one of us wants to keep logs by hand but some of us have to because.  we have Apple computers and your software only runs on a Windows machine.  I know that Apple only holds about a 13% market share in home computing but please keep these things in mind: 13% is second only to Windows, that number is growing steadily, Apple computers are (generally) owned by the more tech savvy section of society and your devices are geared toward those people.  Lastly, it really wouldn’t take that much effort to port your software over to the Mac OS.


Anyway, give that some consideration please and let me know what you decide.

I Emailed Abbott today about this very thing.  I am considering purchasing a no frills laptop just for this purpose but I really can't afford to do that.  Excel is still my friend for now.

Sophia's Mom,

Like a net book maybe... That's a very good idea! Though I would so dislike using Windows again... :)
