"Yup, got my letter this morning. I have few complaints about the current version, so I'm not in a huge rush, but like the idea of something a little smaller on my arm when I cut corners too closely. Lets hope the glitches we've been…"
"Thanks gardian. Good to know someone is paying attention and keeping us in the loop. $10 Million, huh? Just think what kind of research that money could have gone into to improve our lives rather then wasted along with likely enormous legal fees on…"
"I'm in Ontario, and I get $600 every three months from the Province to offset costs. It does take a while to start coming in, but once it does it comes regularly for the year. Make sure that you go through the renewal process when you get the…"
"I don't mean to hijack the thread, but this stuff really erks me. There's so much time and money wasted (and lives I'm certain due to delayed product launches) becuase each Country wants to put their own stamp of appproval on the same…"
"While I'm still on the old PDM and PODs, I can appreciate the frustration. I do not like not having the ability to customize things the way I want them, not only this device, but that goes for all my toys like TV remotes, the beeps in my car,…"
"I start at the back, start slow, then just yank away. Depending on how much hair I rip off, I may scream a little, lol. I would not enjoy a waxing. I'd rather it be a pain to get off than have them fall off."
"I seem to knock mine off every time I wear it on my back. I will end up setting on a chir that has bars in the back and my pod gets stuck under it without me knowing. and as soon a I get up.. woops there goes the pod. oh well my fault."
"My Endo suggested it wouldn't hurt to try any area with fatty tissue, I found that my pectoral area (man boob) works really well, between your collarbone any your nipple. I've been using left and right sides for months now with great…"
"I'm still on the old pods and rarely have issues that are not my fault. But that said, unless I found that I had to change the pod twice a day, I don't think that I would ever go back to MDI. I hope that things get better for you. There…"
"I can imagine there's a ton of places to get caught up on in your line of work. Good thing you've figured out a solution that works. With the way my week has gone, I could use up your old pods in a hurry so you can get started on the new…"
"Well as an auto tech I can tell you there a lot of places to lose a pod. A pillars, B pillars, under dash ,creepers they are the worst, parts shelves oops stud up and caught a shelf. That said I have found the best way to keep them on not 100% but…"
"Ya, I saw that posted at another site: Here's the link. I'm hoping it's going to happen as suggested. I really love the pod, so even though the new smaller one would make me very happy, I'm quite content using the old one…"
"RobAW I read on here from someone that stated that Canada would be getting the new pods beginning of the year (2014). I guess however that they may sit on it, they seem to like doing that. lol. Something to look forward to."
Thank you all for the wishes. It's hard to imagine another year has gone by so quickly, and as the numbers grow higher, so does the speed at which birthdays seem to arrive. I appreciate the kind words. Rob
