Because in the deal, it gave Jobs majority shares in Disney, it was only a matter of time before he went after more shares.

I dont like this myself, Jobs has a certain knack for not being able to keep the finances right
The people at Pixar basically love Walt Disney and what he created. So much so that they implemented his formula and out-classed the studio that bears his name. The purchase makes a lot of sense to me. It will also give Apple control of one of the most valuable catalogs in Hollywood. I just wonder if the Pixar name would cease to exist.

Ahem...F**K Dreamworks animation, horay for Apple. (Now that's hyperbole)
Actually, Michael Eisner is still at Disney but his role is diminished.
Michael has been gone!  I would of thought the men from threejerks sorry Dreamworks didn't try to buy it first.

If what BARRON'S reported is true, Apple Computers is looking to acquire The Walt Disney Company. The transformation is soon to be complete and Walt Disney Pictures will once again be populated with people of creativity and vision. Hurray! Michael Eisner's days at Disney are numbered.
