I can't speak for the under educated or clinically obese folks. All I care to share are my experiences. I'm glad you are using google to do your due diligence though. Google these terms perhaps...."tandem recall insulin cartridges", or "air bubble paranoia". The pump is very exciting during the "test drive period" and initial reviews I'm sure are reflecting that. I just don't feel it is worthy for a patient trying to maintain A1c results in the 5.9 - 6.3 range. Keep in mind that the A1c goals for children are higer than they are for adults. I do see that many parents of Type 1 patients are happy with the pump understanding that their set A1c goals are higher than that for an adult. Have a good day.

I heard that to be a "dig" at KO. I thought it was kinda funny, and maybe suggesting they would lean toward SODA if anyone at all.

The books may look good but the insulin pump has some real issues when it gets in the hands of customers. Google "T:Slim reviews" and you will see that it is about 50/50. The reviews seem to praise the great interface initially, but longer term users have many complaints. If you are invested, beware. I recently trialed the pump and did not choose to stay with it. I could see some near term growth in stock price because it is the "popular new kid on the block" for now.
Is it significant that NPD doesn't include BBY? I believe Daniel has mentioned this in the past. Just curious here and thanks.
Surprised no one else bringing this up today. How is the water going to get cold? And how can you carbonate a 12oz glass without it over flowing? Will I have to use multiple pods for a bigger glass? We have been talking about these barriers for a long time, only time will tell if KO's money can come up with the engineering.
As far as SODA's process, I think most users just keep the bottles prechilled in fridge and fiz them when ready. So it is cold, and doesn't melt the ice and water down the beverage.
Seems like a valid topic for this board, any thoughts? SODA's commercial didn't go as planned, but the KO commercial seems to have gotten most of the negative back lash.
Well I just gave this pump a trial and have to respectfully disagree with your raving review. Sure the interface is leaps a bounds above others. But to help in maintaining great / tight blood sugar control I found it lacking. As well, advanced features such as an extended bolus were not user friendly what so ever. I also found that the tech support was lacking the knowledge to help me trouble shoot several issues that I called about. I was very disappointed.
