On this week’s show, Google wants to put Google Play in every living room and on your mobile devices (and they’ve built a tablet to do just that), Apple wins some, loses some, and puts podcasts in their place.

But first, the headlines…Amazon creates content to compete with Netflix, Microsoft buys Yammer for $1.2 B, Zynga launches “Zynga With Friends,” and Facebook changes your email.

Disney In Depth: Top 10 Funniest Pixar Characters

Disney In Depth banner

Welcome to another edition of Disney In Depth! This week, in honor of Disney-Pixar’s most recent feature, Brave, I will be focusing on some of the best elements of Pixar’s films: funny characters. They evoke a laugh or two during perilous scenes, and manage to make us smirk when a situation seems far from humorous. These are the funniest of the bunch, offering a witty quip or inspiring a gag. This animation studio is known for developing deep characters, in both their personalities and designs. Thanks to Pixar’s brilliant team of writers and the talented voice artists who made these images into fully-fleshed individuals, we have a bunch of characters to root for and giggle along with. Here are the ones I find as most hilarious.

PIXAR's BRAVEBrave
Co-Directed by Mark Andrews, Steve Purcell, and Brenda Chapman
Written by Mark Andrews, Steve Purcell, Brenda Chapman, Irene Mecchi
Starring Kelly Macdonald, Julie Walters, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane, John Ratzenberger
Disney/Pixar
Rated PG | 93 Minutes
Release Date: June 22, 2012

November 22nd, 1995. Aside from it being my sister’s 23rd birthday, it’s also the theatrical release date of Pixar’s first feature film, Toy Story. I was 10 years, 11 months and 18 days old, the perfect age (approximately) for your typical adolescent boy to be super-excited about an all-CGI film.

The thing is, I wasn’t really a normal kid. As a chubby, four-eyed fourth grader, I was wearing Aliens t-shirts and watching Terminator 2: Judgment Day and RoboCop on VHS while other kids sang along to “Under the Sea” or “A Whole New World.”

Walt Disney classics like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and The Lion King didn’t interest me. I was too busy tugging at my mom’s shirt, begging her to rent Alien 3 from the local video store – which she did, only if I promised not to repeat any of the bad words I heard. She still ended up fast-forwarding through the gory moments, but by God no cartoon could ever compare.
