    Apple To Announce Three For One Stock Split @ MacWorld Next Week

    More Rumors: A Stock Split and A SlingBox Client for iPhone

    Posted by: Arik Hesseldahl on January 11

    It must be time for MacWorld because the rumors are at a fever pitch. TheFlyOnTheWall mentioned some �chatter� about a 2-for-1 stock split. I�m inclined to dismiss it because I think the bias at Apple at the moment is against splitting for the time being. I could however be wrong. It just seems to me that if a split was in the wind it would have happened already.

    The second seems not only plausible, but likely. A site called Electricpig.TV is gossiping about a conversation someone claims to have had with an �extremely senior source� at Sling Media� now a unit of Echostar. The word is that a SlingBox client for the iPhone and iPod touch is on the way. In both cases it makes sense, there�s a Sling client for Palm OS, Windows Mobile, Symbian and Blackberry. But here�s the bit that gets my attention even more than that: Sling is said to have been an early recipient of the iPhone Software Development Kit. We reported exclusively in October that an iPhone SDK was coming, a day before Steve Jobs confirmed it himself and pegged the date as February of 2008. If it�s true that Sling has an early seed of the iPhone SDK, that means there�s more companies out there who have one. I wonder who they are.
