    One thing is to be a fan, even a huge fan, of a product and quite another to choose to ignore these issues. I call it denial.

    I was able to charge my PB via USB just fine before OS 2.1. After OS 2.1 it is no longer possible, in the same port, with the same cable, after about 20 restarts.
    And it's one thing to be a troll, even a huge troll.

    For the record, I'm not a huge fan, just an electrical engineer. It's not a function of how many times the thing is restarted. It's a function of electrical physics. If the port cannot safely provide enough current to operate the PB, it cannot provide enough current to charge the battery at the same time. OTOH, when the PB enters standby, it does indeed charge the battery, despite the warning.
