To spill the beans at upcoming conference

Apple's announced conference is scheduled for 13:00 GMT today and the company is expected to reveal what it will do with the $98 billion it's sitting on.

Recent comments by Apple's CEO Tim Cook suggested that the company may pay dividends to shareholders, which would be the first time since 1995. Already the year after, Apple posted a net loss of $816 million.
