Every second HDMI cable in store is being advertised with "High Speed Ethernet Support" on its packaging.

... and yet I have never-ever seen a single device that makes use of that feature. Have you?


@fribbledom DisplayPort is an even sorrier waste. It's supposed to carry USB as well, so theoretically I could wire up a workstation with dual 2560x1600 screens, mouse and keyboard with a single DP cable back to the computer. Many screens already have a built-in USB hub! But no graphics card manufacturer bothers spending the extra $0.50 to add a USB controller, so two cables it is, and long USB cables work *so* well...
