    I bought a Thunderbolt cable to connect my Air with my iMac for Target Display and Target Disk usage. Are there other uses for the connection besides these two?

    It will be useful for any conceivable TB accessories you might purchase in the future.

    and maybe it will function as a radio antenna while we're waiting for Thunderbolt accessories to appear...

    So in the short term, at least with iMac connectivity, there aren't any other uses, I take it?

    Does the new iMac really have target display mode? I thought that died out a couple of years back, and before the advent of thunderbolt...

    Yup. At least the 2011 variant that I have works.
