Pixar includes Steve Jobs tribute in new movie

Disney's Pixar Animation Studios pays tribute to 'a mentor and a friend' in new movie, 'Brave'

Pixar's new film pays tribute to Steve Jobs in its closing credits, calling Apple's late co-founder a mentor and a friend.

The Disney's 3D animation studio's new film, Brave, is the first Pixar movie to be released since Steve Jobs' death. The movie is about a girl in Scotland on a journey to find where she belongs, and features glowing, ghost-like creatures called will-o'-the-wisps that are thought to lead people to their destiny.

The Wall Street Journal reports that 'the most emotional moment' in Pixar's film is during the end credits, when a will-o'-the-wisp floats around Steve Jobs' name on screen.

Brave is dedicated to Jobs, who helped launch Pixar Animation Studios in 1986, and the Wall Street Journal says that he was called a partner, mentor and a friend in the early cut of the film.

Brave, which stars Emma Thompson, Kelly Macdonald and Julie Walters, is set to hit the cinemas on 17 August. Watch the trailer below.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
