    Okay...Disney's owning a bit TOO much. Shouldn't there be laws against this??

    With Pixar, Disney is kinda related to Apple…

    Except he's not owning the company, he's owning stock in the company. Disney hasn't bought Apple, the CEO bought stock in the company after selling stock in his. That worries me on the level that it shows some lack of faith in Disney, considering this is the guy who runs it (and has, frankly, done a pretty good job).

    Disney makes the laws. :p

    Disney IS the law

    Ain't that the truth.

    I must stress this is not about acquiring a new business to put under Disney but rather buying stock in another company for the sake of owning stock. The fact he sold just as much of his own to pay for it is bothersome, but no changes will be made one way or another, as Iger also sat on the board of Apple to begin with. It's nothing more than stock trading that amounts to Iger being a stock holder. A major stock holder with some say on the company, but a stockholder no less.

    I think everyone got the story wrong.

    Disney just bought a share in Apple, just like anyone (with a lot of money) would. Becuase they know Apple sales are going up, they want more money too.

    Drtooth said it well enough.

    I didn't I was having fun with the fact Disney IS the law. Which they are. :p

    Yeah but we all know Disney is gonna buy everything eventually.
  18. Vincent Liu Well-Known Member

    Disney is not a tech company, and I don't think it'll buy Apple anytime soon (or anytime, for that matter)
  19. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    Apparently nobody can take a joke anymore. Sheesh!
  20. Vincent Liu Well-Known Member

    That's a joke? Well, you could've called Bert out.
