According to this article, Disney will announce that they have acquired Pixar tomorrow afternoon. Being that Jobs will then own 6% of Disney, do you think he'll stay with Apple or move to an active role on the board at Disney? If it is indeed true, I can see Jobs being on the board, and exerting all types of pressure to move tons of Disney content to iTMS and somehow tie-in Apple and Disney. This *could* be very big for Apple. Of course, it probably also means the death of any sign of a decent animated film in our future too. <br><br>

Actually, I see this as him renewing his focus on Apple. <br><br>Selling Pixar now is a good business move. It will never be worth more. Box office is way down overall and DVD sales have cooled. Who knows what the future holds. <br><br>For Disney, it's a good deal because they get all the money from the Pixar properties, plus the talent to generate more movies..which, based on their recent output, they sorely need. <br><br>
"Of course, it probably also means the death of any sign of a decent animated film in our future too"<br><br>have you seen the promo for Cars? I think that "Pixar" may be able to blame Disney for this one if it all works out! <br><br><br><br><br>
so the question is this:<br>will jobs stay IN CONTROL of apple or will he join the disney board to play A ROLE? he could do both, but there's no way he drops apple into someone else's hands. apple is his baby.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
