Apple to become more Mickey Mouse outfit

Written by Nick Farell

Hires Disney executive


Apple is looking to cast itself as a Mickey Mouse outfit after hiring Walt Disney chief executive Bob Iger to its board to push its multi-media plans.

Iger is supposed to use the expertise he gained working for Disney's to take on Amazon.com Inc and Google Inc over content and its distribution. He might also be asked to sort out Apple's television plans. He will have to move fast. Google is expected to announce this week an online music service similar to iTunes. Many investors think Apple will launch a full-fledged assault on TV, although the content industry is very hostile given what Jobs did to the music industry over iTunes.

Jobs was himself a director at Disney, whose corporate empire encompasses TV network ABC, sports cable channel ESPN, movie studios and theme parks and resorts. He and Iger were quite close after Disney bought Pixar, which Jobs took over in 1986, for about $7.4 billion in 2006.

I think that today Disney is anything but Mickey Mouse.
Apple is probably to become more jonas brothers/ selena gomez/ insert teenager trash here.
Good luck to them.

Disney is known for it's sexually explicit images in it's movies and hard core porn that is put out under different companies other than Disney own name.

"From those who knew Walt personally one learns that he had an obsession with the buttock part of anatomy. He enjoyed jokes about this part of the anatomy, which he told to his staff quite frequently. The staff edited out many of his crude posterior jokes from cartoon scripts."

Quoting nforce4max:

LMAO
