@Ginat: I just signed up for the SCiO with an expected delivery date in December 2014. With the developers opening it up for others to create their own apps, I am excited to see what might come out of it. I used the food thing to justify the buy-in.

@Ginat: I assume the Medtronic Pump is connected via USB. Have you connected your USB devices with Parallels so that the virtualized Windows can see them? Here is the documentation:

Is anyone familiar with /heard of ScIO? It's a molecular imaging device that is supposed to give exact carbohydrate readings (among other things) in real time, not per unit, but for the real food you have on your real plate. Too good to be true? The device is still in the production stage.

Is there a way to download CareLInk to a Mac version 10.9.3? I have tried to run it through Parallels, but the computer does not "see" the CareLink to download the info. Super frustrating! Any help is appreciated! I've asked Medtronic customer service and Parallels customer service--so far no luck.

I just discovered that in Australia they have a fantastic system where food is labelled according to its glycemic index!
Check out this web link of the "Glycemic index foundation"
it would make life so much easier for us diabetics if they did this labeling in all countries.
How can we make this happen ?

Network Engineer anyone?
Been doing the Cisco and Microsoft thing for about 17 years. To this day, I am the only Type 1, female, tattooed geek that I know. Any others? :)

Happy to find this group :) I'm a wanna be geek with good skills, still on the learning path, but I do ok. Some days are low and work doesn't go as planned, other days are high gear and I can get my small goals done. I do designing, build a few websites, teach media & SEO classes, all while trying to balance this T2 condition.
Hope I can be of assistance or at least add some "funnies" to the group. Be Blessed.
