I think it's about time people learned to stop underestimating Steve Jobs, as Michael Eisner and Disney are soon to find out.

The question is will Eisner's ego compensate for a 40% loss in revenue... Can't wait to find out.

Sad really - Eisner is causing so much havoc. Disney is hurting and its going to be tough for them in the near future.

Sounds like this guy Eisner has a problem handling people. Been hanging around cartoon land too long.

Disney is screwing themselves.

40% of last quarters income came from the Pixar/Disney films, with no film after (2005?) they are screwed.
There is a little Steve in all of us!
