New gadgets and old Hollywood properties will color in the week that lies ahead.

Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) promises to be the star attraction at its Worldwide Developers Conference, which starts Monday. Chances are better than fair that the Cupertino company will introduce its fourth-generation iPhone.

Will it have two cameras? Will it be a significant upgrade over last year's 3GS? Will Steve Jobs walk on water?

ModusLink Global Solutions
(Nasdaq: MLNK) reports earnings. The global supply chain specialist is projected to break even for the quarter. This may not seem like much, but it's an improvement over the small deficit it posted a year ago.

Shuffle Master
(Nasdaq: SHFL), which makes automatic card shufflers and other casino gear, is expected to post a profit of $0.10 a share, flat with last year's showing.

On the new products front, Garmin (Nasdaq: GRMN) hits the market with its Android-powered Garminfone. Garmin has had enough of naysayers claiming that smartphones will be the end of its GPS gadgetry, so it's hoping to roll the two into one. Its first attempt -- the Nuvifone -- didn't exactly pan out. Let's see if it learned from its mistakes.

National Semiconductor
(NYSE: NSM), CRA International (Nasdaq: CRAI), and NaviSite (Nasdaq: NAVI) are stepping up to the earnings podium. Analysts see the three companies going in different directions. They see earnings growing at National Semiconductor and sliding at CRA International. NaviSite should check in with a narrower loss.

It'll feel like the 1980s all over again at the local multiplex as new cinematic turns for The A-Team and The Karate Kid begin their big-screen runs.

Don't laugh. Trailers for The Karate Kid with Jackie Chan and Will Smith's kid look pretty promising.

Until next week, I remain,
