I forget why, but I ended up looking at the listings for bloomberg over the weekend and ended up recording/watching a few of that show (same one the pixar episode was on).
Most of them are REALLY fluff (and/or I know everything they said already), but even so, they're entertaining.
It is really annoying that Pixar seems to want to make people believe that they were always a company that wanted to make *movies*, instead of being a computer hardware/software company, which is what they originally were. The original shorts were done as demos *to show what their software can do*.
IIRC, this Bloomberg special did at least mention something like "the computer hardware division of Lucasfilm".
