Default tether to Mac

Is there any native support from HTC or Apple for a wired USB connection, since the Hotspot appears to be something I'll have to pay for soon?

Or, a more basic question from a newbie - is there ANY way to bring internet access from the phone to a Macbook besides WiFi. If I'd realized that HTC doesn't make a version of the Sync software for Apples, I'd have reconsidered the purchase, but now I have the Macbook and the Thunderbolt and need to find a way to make them play nice with each other.

Actually PdaNet works for non rooted Botl+Mac setups. Speeds are not as good as when you use Internet Connection Mode on a PC since the bandwidth is shared between your phone and android, but much better than WiFi.
