HDMI in Mac Mini, but no Blu-ray?

AppleInsider reports that Apple is looking at adding an HDMI connector to the Mac Mini, though the details are sort of vague and clouded by issues between Intel and Nvidia.

Perhaps more interesting is a piece at the end of the report which repeats the claim that Apple made a last-minute decision to scrap Blu-ray from the last iMac revision, and seems to suggest that the chances of Apple supporting Blu-ray are now less than zero:
One issue, according to people familiar with the matter, was that Apple management -- including Jobs -- felt Blu-ray licensing fees were too steep for the length of time they believed the technology would remain relevant in the market place.
