Auto-detection of a cross-connection has actually been in Macs for close to five years. Even my G4 already touted this feature. It's simply that all longer, non-cross-wired Ethernet cables in the house are already in use (not that I have lots of networking hardware), so the only one left was my cross-cable.

"I used an ethernet cross cable to transfer stuff"

I was pleasantly surprised to find that all the new hardware coming from Apple doesn't requirea cross over cable, but can use a standard ethernet wire. They even have a nice "do I need a cross over cable" page:
