As recently as 15 years ago stock splits were rather common. Why is that no longer the case? Has Warren Buffett managed to impose his will on the entire market?

Stock splits kept the unit share price low thus allowing buyers to purchase larger lots of stocks in even multiples, 100, 500, or 1,000 shares. Have splits disappeared because with the advent of computer trading, there is no longer a penalty for small and/or odd lot trading?
