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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
