I was going off memory from a documentary I watched. Just read up a little. Apparently it was originally a three movie deal that got extended to five early on. And you were right- Disney only handled distribution and marketing
Ya- it actually is an interesting story. If memory serves correctly- Disney was the producer of Toy Story because Pixar needed help getting its first feature film launched- I think the deal was for 3 movies- the 2nd was bugs life. Disney wanted toy story 2 to be direct to video and not count toward their three film deal, but Pixar refused and they fought over it, and Pixar finally won out to have creative control and backing for a full length film.The whole Pixar story is...
They've had 3 sequels. One blew (Cars 2). The other two (Toy story 2 and toy story 3) being very good. One of which was force-made by Disney (TS2). The other- Toy Story 3 is arguably the best movie they've ever done. It's my favorite.My point is- sequels can be great- Pixar has proved it. It just takes good direction.
Obviously because the prices of those chips/memory/screen/battery have dropped significantly less than they were almost 4 years ago. But it still most likely isn't going to happen- and I really hope it doesn't. I like Apple to be a premier product- not an "every man's" product. And 1983- Apple said forever theyd never have an iPad. :)
That wouldn't be a bad cycle. Incremental every summer and big one every fall. But trying to nail down when Apple does anything is near impossible. They fooled us with iPods, iPhones, iPads, Macs.... all in the last 2 years its all been all over the map. When you think iPads are every year, they arent. When iPhones come every Summer, they push to the fall. And when iPods get updated every fall, they skip a whole year.
Please, analysts... spare us. A 4.8"...
I was just kidding. It's just that I picture you looking like the monopoly man with a cane and top hat looking down on the peasants that can't have Apple products. Let's be honest... you're a little smug... :)
I know- that was my point. Only a case redesign isn't enough to warrant a change- as significant as that is. That's why I say the fall for the big iPad. The Mini could get an update when they find a way to get Retina without compromising weight or battery life significantly.
