Speaking Of That Jerk, Steve Jobs

Every day of the year, it's good to be Pixar. But today, it totally sucks to be Pixar! Not only is a federal shareholder lawsuit focusing on a nasty options backdating scandal (Steve Jobs strikes again!), Disney gadfly/insider reporter-type person Jim Hill reports that Disney officials are worried that Ratatouille, the new Pixar movie, will be a big flop. "Given that the folks at Disney PR no longer really buy into the old 'Everybody goes to Pixar movies' idea ... Well, they're now trying to decide who exactly they should be marketing this Brad Bird movie to," Hill writes. "Marketing movies that star a rat can be a rather tricky affair." Sucks to be you, Pixar!
