Som i alla Pixars filmer innehåller även kommande Toy Story 3 en massa sköna referenser till andra Pixarfilmer, diverse populärkultur samt Apple. Slashfilm har tagit en grundlig titt på den senaste Trailern för Toy Story 3 och hittat pärlorna, bland annat visas en iMac med Mac OS X och Safari.
”Pixar has a history of Apple/Mac references. Steve Jobs, who co-founded Apple with Steve Wozniak, bought The Graphics Group (later renamed Pixar) from Lucasfilm’s computer graphics division in 1986, and served as CEO until Pixar was acquired by Disney in 2006. Apple has been featured in previous Pixar productions like on the hood of one of the race cars in Cars. There are several references to Apple in WALL-E, the most obvious is when WALL-E watches Hello Dolly on an older video iPod, WALL-E making the Mac startup chime and Eve was even designed by Apple’s behind-the-scenes design guru Johnny Ive.”
