Apple CEO Tim Cook is once again heading to Allen & Company's Sun Valley Conference, which is set to begin today, Tuesday, July 9, and runs through Friday, July 12, 2013. The annual gathering, during which technology and media moguls from around the world are said to discuss deals within a private setting, will take place at the Sun Valley Resort in Utah. More than 300 leaders participate in the event over the course of its four days, and this year's attendees include regulars such as Disney CEO Bob Iger, CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves, and Rupert Murdoch. After making a surprise appearance last year, however, Apple CEO Tim Cook will be returning to Utah to join in the event, according to a recent report from Reuters. This year, though, the spotlight isn't on Cook. Instead, so-called "King of Cable" Liberty Media Corp. Chairman John Malone, who recently took a 28 percent stake in Charter Communications, is making what will be a high-profile appearance. Might Cook get chance to talk cable with Malone? Apple, after all, already has its Apple TV set-top box on the market, and has, for some time, been rumored to be working on a larger "Apple HDTV" (or "iTV") smart television product.
