Their latest movie WALL-E is packed to the rafters with references to Macs and iPods, ranging from the obvious to the downright bizarre. Take a peep at our favourites here.
WALL-E’s fully charged!
A scene showing WALL-E charging his batteries finishes as the robot becomes fully juiced up, announcing his readiness for action with a chirpy sounding of the Mac start-up chime.
Mice to see you
Amongst the clutter of WALL-E’s home some Apple mice can be seen, they’re even sent scattering across the floor in a visual pun on their name, and the filthiness of WALL-E’s abode.
WALL-E is a big fan of the US show Hello Dolly! He watches it on TV for company, and is also seen playing an episode on an iPod.
AppleTalk in space
When WALL-E ventures into space, he finds himself on-board the Axiom space ship. The ship’s computer has a voice provided by MacinTalk, some software provided with early Mac computers that turned text into computerised speech.
EVE seen you before somewhere…
WALL-E’s love interest, EVE, was designed with the help of Jonathan Ive, Apple’s design mastermind, explaining her shimmering white shell, and similarity to iPod, the iPhone and iMacs.
