HDMI 1.4 includes 'ethernet over HDMI' and I've seen HDMI ports on some switches at work but I've not been able to find much info on this such as how well its supported under Linux or how I might take advantage of the 10Gps data transfer rate HDMI 1.4 offers.

Many new devices are using Mobile High-Definition Link ports (MHL) to output video to a compatible HDMI port on a TV or monitor. MHL is an industry standard that adds video output through the existing microUSB port.
Development on OpenWFD just started less than two weeks ago and there haven't been any public announcements of the work yet, but Anzwix has already latched onto the interesting work. OpenWFD seeks to be an implementation of the WiFi Display Standard and Miracast technologies, which basically are a standard equivalent to "wireless HDMI cables."
Recently fiddled with my first HDMI switch box and and hooked up my gaming pc and xbox 360 on the same LED monitor.
