Disney/Pixar’s brilliant ‘WALL•E’ is an Apple Mac

Calling WALL•E, the new Disney/Pixar film, “brilliant,” the Austin American Statesman’s Dale Roe reports:

Pixar and Apple computer head Steve Jobs’ influence is seen here: Not only did Apple whiz Jonathan Ive consult on the design of the film’s love interest [EVE], one of the trinkets WALL•E has collected is a relatively clunky, first-edition iPod. And when WALL•E boots up, there’s that familiar startup chime. That’s right … WALL•E is a Macintosh!

MacDailyNews Take: Of course WALL•E is a Mac, he’s still working after 700+ years!

  1. From what I’ve seen so far from the trailers, and I know it’s probably premature to be judging, I think this is going to be one of those Pixar films that people will fall in love with. I’m looking forward to seeing it and have been since the first teaser. Of course not all Pixar films appeal to everyone (I didn’t much care for Toy Story 1 or 2), but like Nintendo has proven with the Wii, entertainment doesn’t have to be violent or explicit or raunchy for people to enjoy it.
