Who's the PC now?
I saw WALL-E yesterday with my daughter. As usual, Pixar delivers a great, fun movie. Animating a pile of rusty metal and transform it into such a moving character is no small achievement. But there's one thing that I found really curious.
You know how Pixar is owned by Steve Jobs, right? And in the movie, there is the old WALL-E and the sleek, shiny new EVE. When I saw this unlikely couple, I almost immediately thought about Apple's "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" ads. And of course, I also thought WALL-E must be the PC, and EVE must be the shiny new Mac. Right? Well, that is until I heard the sound WALL-E does when it reboots (twice in the movie): it's the sound of a Mac.
