Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Word has been going around for a week or so about Pixar's deal with Disney, but now it looks like it's official. $7 billion and Steve Jobs with a nice big chair with his name stitched on it in gold resting among the board of directors. Some are even saying that Jobs might have enough control to essentially become a new Walt Disney. If every word of that is true in every sense then Disney still made the smartest decision they've made in decades. They could hand over the keys to the magic kingdom to Jobs and it'd still be the right idea. Pixar is what Disney should be, so hopefully this will mark a return to form for the mouse house. Great news, indeed. What are your thoughts?
