    Why the f*** do they still promote this blatant lie: "Jobs then founded a computer graphics company, Pixar. When it was bought by Disney he became that company’s leading shareholder."

    No, Steve Jobs didn't founded Pixar, he later on put money into it, the brain behind the beginnings of Pixar was Ed Catmull, and the creative one was John Lasseter.

      Actually, Pixar (including Ed Catmull, and John Lasseter) was part of the computer division at Lucasfilm. George Lucas decided to put the group up for sale, as part of his divorce settlement.

      Steve came along with an investment in the division which was then spun off into it's own corporation (Pixar)

      So Steve was very much a founder of Pixar.
