I wish Apple would invest in EPCOT or something. Not that I trust Bob 'franchises!' Iger to have anything originalor grand up his sleeve.
But who else but Apple would be willing to invest heavily in EPCOT? Apple is awash with cash, more money than they can spend. It has taken the place of erstwhile champions of American industry, such as GE and GM.
Kind of seems like a non issue to me. If you look at the boards of any large corporation, you will see a HUGE amount of overlap with execs from other large companies. Doesn't mean that they will or won't work together. Would be nice to think it did but having Jobs on the Disney board really didn't make much of a difference in the two companies working together outside of Pixar.
I'd probably welcome that move. Though I'd be surprised if it actually happened. At least with Apple there would be a chance of innovation actually happening again at WDW. :shrug:
Are there actually any plausible rumors that Apple has an interest in being a part of Epcot? Quite honestly I don't know why they haven't done anything yet, be it a small Innoventions exhibit or a full blown sponsorship deal.
