The answer to this quiz question is as follows:

(without any comments with regard to the difficulty level of the question)

The three personalities are - Paul Otellini (CEO, Intel Corp), Steve Jobs (CEO, Apple) and Walt Disney (he doesn't need any introduction).

You may call it an anticlimax (or a poorly framed quiz question), but the connection is like this -

Steve and Paul were in news recently, as Apple announced shipping of first powerbooks and iMacs using Intel's processors.

Steve Jobs is the crucial link here - He had very high stakes in the amazing animation company called, The Pixar Animation Studios, which gave us the hits like Toy Story (I and II), A bug's life, monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, and the most recent, The Incredibles. Recently, The Walt Disney Company announced that it had taken over Pixar.

Boo? Interesting? Not interesting? Trivial? OK? Good? Keep it up?
