    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Steve Jobs, who resigned as chief executive officer of Apple Inc on Wednesday, plans to keep his seat on the board of directors of Walt Disney Co, a source close to Disney said on Wednesday.
    Jobs joined Disney's board when the media company acquired Pixar, the animation studio he ran, for $7.4 billion. The deal was announced in January 2006.

    I think this is good news. If I remember correctly he was heavily involved in the refurbishment of the Disney Stores (which, based on the Belfast Store, was a brilliant job), and while I don't particularly like Apple's products, his ideas were always ahead of the opposition.
