    Jobs at Disney?

    "Steve Jobs, the chairman of both Apple Computers and Pixar Animation, may be offered a position in the Walt Disney Co. that would make him second-in-command to Michael Eisner, according to theNew York Post, which said that at the least, Jobs might be offered a position on Disney's board. Some analysts, however, scoffed at the notion of the two men being able to work closely together, noting that a year ago, Eisner criticized Apple's "Rip.Mix.Burn" campaign for its iTunes product as an effort to promote piracy. Disney and Pixar are currently in renegotiations over a production/distribution deal, and Jobs has threatened to chuck Pixar's deal with Disney unless it can be substantially improved."

    Good thing or bad thing?

    I wonder if Steve could handle the role of second fiddle.
