Apple owns Pixar owns Disney

So Steve "Jobs, who is also chief executive of Apple Computer Inc., bought the computer graphics division of Lucasfilm Ltd that became Pixar from "Star Wars" creator George Lucas in 1986 for $10 million."

Then in 2006 "the Walt Disney Co on Tuesday said it would buy Pixar Animation Studios in a $7.4 billion deal that gives Pixar animators creative control over the world's most famous cartoon studio and makes Pixar CEO Steve Jobs one of Disney's largest shareholders."

That's a $7,390,000,000 prifit AND "Disney also will surrender control of its world-famous animation studio".

So does this mean that Mickey Mouse will become Mickey Mac or will he be just using a Mac in all features from here on out. And will IBM or Dell have to pay to have a PC put in Disney movies? Just food for thought.
