This week we lost a great mind and arguably one of the greatest minds since Edison or even Einstein. Steve Jobs did more for mobile technology then any other person. That said he also was the man who took a small company called Pixar and turned it from a low budget studio to a billion dollar powerhouse.
When Steve Jobs purchased Pixar from Lucasfilms in 1986 he paid $5million. He then took another $5million of his own cash to develop the company. The proof is in the pudding when you see what happened. Not only is Pixar responsible for some of the best animated films of all time Steve Jobs sold PIXAR to Disney in 2006 for just shy of $8billion.
He was a genius and a money making machine all in the same breath. So now in honor of Steve Jobs and the time and money that he invested in making PIXAR the power house that it was here is my list of the 7 Best Pixar Animated Movies!

#6 Monsters Inc:
