DISNEY ACQUISITION OF PIXAR
Wow. Years ago people thought this deal should have been done with some other movie studios buying out their animation partners, but the timing of this Disney deal with Pixar is in a very different context. iPod's music and now video distribution power defines digital distribution for the old guard and Pixar was simply a cash cow (moooooo! baby!) for Disney. How much better positioning could Steve Jobs get on this deal? Wow. Steve Jobs is 'da man'... at least for the week in my mind.
CNET has a collection of good articles on this new marriage, and some more info from Om Malik.
