In an article on the The Motley Fool today, Rick Aristotle Munarriz takes a look at Apple’s announcement yesterday about the ability of the new iPod to play Disney video content. He ponders what the future holds with the renewed relationship between Apple, Pixar, and Disney. “For those who want to see Pixar and Disney stay together after their current contract expires with May’s release of Cars, this is as good a sign as any that Jobs is staging productive conversations with Disney’s top brass,” writes Munarriz. “Even if Disney merely stays on as a distributor now that Pixar has the means and pedigree to go it alone on the production front, Iger’s (Disney CEO) off to a great start if he’s able to keep Jobs close — and happy.”
