I apologize in advance as this post doesn't really have much to do with Illustrator (at least not in any direct way), but the news item requires attention in my humble opinion.
Disney announced today its plans to purchase Pixar. At the same time, Steve Jobs was name to Disney's board of directors and he is now also the single largest shareholder in Disney. Anyone who knows me that I love Disney, I love Pixar, and I love Apple (and Steve of course). It's like an ice cream cone with scoops of all of my favorite flavors of ice cream.
In any case, I can't wait to see what kind of stuff will be coming out of these companies, but just thinking about the sheer size of what these companies currently offer, you gotta think that we're in for some pretty hefty entertainment in the coming years.
