    Thought I'd give everyone a last-minute heads up on this story. I'm sure that some people here would like to see it.

    Yes, I saw an advertisment for the show on Monday during "CSI: Miami" During the commerical they showed a 17" PowerBook. I wonder if they will interview Steve Jobs? It will be shown at 9pm EDT! :cool:

    Any good/bad news?

    Probably all for Nemo and The next one "The Incredibles"

    I hear The Incredibles is gonna be the biggest one yet, from what people have seen it is told me to totally kicking.

    Here in Australia we have 60 minutes but even if a good company is on the show they always have to add dramatic lighting effects and a heart burning storyline.

    I watched the segment and thoroughly enjoyed the interviews. A good thing to take away is that the workers at Pixar are kid's at heart. From the second interview with Steve, it appears that he feels Pixar has attained stature. He's looking to negotiate a better deal with Disney! :)

    Yeah, I watched it too. I thought that it was interesting that in 1986 he bought Pixar for $10 million. Now it is worth about $3 billion! :D

    God, that place must be a paradise for CGI people. I watched the segment and saw Pixar as a place somewhere over the rainbow. I thought of my current job and I got really really depressed. Excuse me while I go hang myself. :(
