There's a Mac version of VLC here that can play HEVC, and some sample movies. http://www.libde265.org/blog/2014/04/02/hevc-4k-ultra-hd-media-player-vlc-for-mac-os-x/   It works fine on my 2012 rMBP, but if you look in Activity Monitor it fluctuates between using 2.5 and 3.5 cores :) If Apple adds software HEVC to Quicktime Player or iTunes hopefully they will use OpenCL to offload some of that to the GPU.
I think it's just waiting for the Broadwell chips. There was a leak on the Apple website a few months ago when information about a mid-2014 Mac mini appeared and then disappeared. They must have been planning to release it but the Intel delays stopped them.
I wonder if the new iTunes 12 beta has HEVC?
Wow, you'd really have to love your company to turn down that kind of money.
Wow, he has a great voice! This video has fun references for people who remember the computers of the 80s.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBWSTMnBgCs
I wonder if iTunes will get 4K movies at the same time?
Is this a test of a new business model for iTunes, a way to counter the streaming services? Make deals with individual bands for their latest album and then push it out to all accounts automatically. The only potential problem with that idea is humorously expressed in the above Douglas Adams quote.
Remember, there are some people who don't have a PC and use their phone for everything. They are probably willing to put up with a bulky phone in order to have only one device for everything.
It's hard for overseas people to put those numbers in context, because we don't know what a normal income is in Hong Kong. But if you say people are willing to pay twice as much then I think Apple should probably put the price up.
It's really tempting to preorder but I want to see how big the Plus is in person first. But they are both amazing looking phones.
