His Jobness at the Oscars....

Posing here with little known movie director and screenwriter Jon Chu. I guess after Jon published this shot on Twitter (I'm sure an iPhone was involved here), he became a instant celeb and the focus of tech reporters queueing up to hear what His Jobness had to say to him. It's not El Jobso's habit though to be posing with obscure celebrities unless they meant something. Who knows, we may hear more about this Chu guy in the future. His best investment so far was to pose with the Master at the 2010 Oscars.

Anyways, Jobs went home with an Oscar too... euh... his Pixar did, with the incredible "Up".  It's Director Pete Docter, at the award ceremony, looked very much like one of his own animated characters if you asked me (from Monsters, maybe?). Not relevant though. This guy knows how to make 3D animation. Watching the Up BD, I often forgot it were made of just computer generated scenes... felt like real life, with emotions and all. My favorite scene was when kid Russell asked the old man Carl to take Dug the talking dog along with them and Carl refused... Russell responds, ...BUT HE'S A TALKING DOG! Russel's body expression, along with his voice shouting in high pitch, showing an utmost surprise about how someone could leave behind such a miracle of nature (a talking dog!) were simply w√ľnderbar.

Thank you much Steve for giving us Pixar and its people...
