    The Pixar Times reports (via 9to5Mac) that Pixar has recently named its main building in honor of Steve Jobs, with a Pixar employee tweeting a friend's photo showing the new name on the building.
    Jobs famously invested $10 million to purchase Pixar from Lucasfilm in 1986, with the animation studio being sold to Disney 20 years later for $7.4 billion.

    Well I am not surprised, they got to honor the man who gave them the computers that do all of their animations on.

    That's cool, Pixar wouldn't be where they are now, if it wasn't for his vision, money and support of a fledging company spun off from Lucasfilm.

    Samsung sues because they have a building that also has doors.

    Yes, we know, Steve Jobs was the second coming of Jesus Christ... RIP Steve, now can we all move on?

    My guess? The character Sulley from Monster's Inc.

    This is not to belittle the well meaning of their effort, but if he were alive, I don't think Steve would want to be attributed to an UGLY looking building and that sign!!! Aesthetically, it's just not Steve...

    I love Pixar films but they've seemed to have lost some of their magic in the past couple years. I hope Pixar's 2013 film puts an end to this decline.

    Steve Jobs and John Lasseter are the heart of Pixar...

    Not a bad little earner...:D

    And the big irony is that Disney now owns Lucasfilm too. The circle is complete.

    A University is needed next

    The wealth of knowledge Steve accumulated since his return to Apple in 1996 to create the most valuable company on earth has affected everything from design/art, mathematics, technology/engineering, economics, philosophy/psychology, marketing. I believe the next generation has a lot to learn from him and it could be structured in a way to create the next generation of great leaders and thinkers, not just in same fields, but all facets of life.

    Here's to Jobs University

    Lets see it happen by 2020.

    Note: I am not asking for a cult university here, just the best of Jobs thinking structured in a way that can benefit humanity. He was human, so he did have his flaws, but his talent overshadowed them.

    No they're not. Pixar is a unit of Disney...hence Jobs selling it to them for $7 billion.
