New Macbooks Minidisplay port carry audio

Wow, lots of mac news recently. Whether it's the available purchase of the iPad, the new iPhone OS 4.0, or the new macbook pro update there's a lot to talk about. But recently I saw an article on Ars Technica that said in addition to the spec bump on the new macbook pros the minidisplay port finally carries audio!

I for one was very happy to see this, as I was initially disappointed that the initial generation of minidisplayport from apple did not support audio and only carried video across. Well, news has it that apple is soon going to release a dp to hdmi cable, with audio support! This is also good news for mac mini users because they can hook up their mac to a HDTV! On a less related note I wish apple still bundled the VGA adapter (and apple remote) with every mac. It's pretty essential especially for mac users who need to present some sort of powerpoint or keynote on a projector.
