Apple & Pixar
CNN/Money columnist Paul R. La Monica asks, now that Pixar and Walt Disney have gone their separate ways, " Both companies are run by Steve Jobs, and, with its success in online music, Apple is beginning to look "more and more like a content company." Independent media researcher Dennis McAlpine says "It's an interesting idea [...] The basis of Pixar's success is computer animation and Jobs is trying to get more into music and entertainment." Pixar's market value, as of Thursday's market close, was $3.6 billion.
