    Everyone familiar with how extra operating current works on Macs knows that Apple allows special treatment for their devices and allows them to charge more quickly when connected to an Apple machine. See KB: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4049

    I was pleasantly surprised to find out that somehow my Z10 was pulling 1.5amps from my Early 2011 Macbook Pro. Not sure how BlackBerry pulled this one off, but it's the kind of attention to detail we need from the new BB. As for BlackBerry Link under OS X.....that's a totally different story. Hopefully by version 2.0 the massive amount of bugs and performance bottlenecks will be worked out.

    Here's the screen shot of my system profiler view:

    Yea definitely, it's not something standard though, no API or anything else can insert this. I'm guessing they put together a custom kext to do it. Hopefully it was done by a team that normally works in C/C++ and not a recent Java convert hehe.

    I find it stupid that post like this are pretty interesting, yet crackberry users tend to show em to love.

    Either way it's good to know, I have noticed my phone charges faster when plugged to my MBP
