New OmniPod Wherefore Art Thou?

I can remember bugging my parents unmercifully one Christmas for the Omnibot robot from Tomy. I couldn't think of anything else in the months leading up to December 25th. I was hooked the very first time that I saw the Omnibot commercial on television... my wildest dreams were about to come true!



I feel like that little kid again today as I patiently wait for the new OmniPod to arrive at our front door.

Insulet's phone message: It's not super cool like the commercial you just watched but Insulet has recorded an audio message for their customers. You can hear the message at my link or by dialing (888)-7-GET-POD.


Questions about the new OmniPod

I'm sure you've noticed that some people are beginning to receive the new OmniPod. Arden hasn't received hers yet, but as soon as she does I'll begin to make notes about our experience so that I can pass my thoughts on to you.

Until that time, and let's hope it's soon... if you have any questions about the new OmniPod that you would like me to address please leave them in this discussion thread. Hopefully, I'll be answering them before Christmas.

Wierd side note: I knew that I wanted to write about my desire to own the Omnibot robot as a child. When I began to consider this post I, no lie, I couldn't remember the name of the robot - only what it looked like. After some Googling I found an image and couldn't believe that my robot, from all of those years ago, was called the Omnibot. That's the kind of stuff Alanis Morissette writes songs about, don't cha think?

The only people to receive the new pods are new customers. Those of us who have been loyal customers don't even have a date as to when the conversion will take place. I spoke to OmniPod today and they were not helpful at all. It will probably be another year before current users see this new smaller pod.
