The WWDC is coming soon. We will see the news of the next OS made in Cupertino and probably the last Iphone model news.
Snow Leopard it’s very near, the developer’s seeds follow them another very quickly in this first quarter of the year and now we are in the proximity of release date. The main news of Snow Leopard will be, as we know from a bit of time, the moving to new 64-bit based kernel and the optimized managent of the multicore architecture. Furthermore, with new OpenCL, developers can exploit the advantage of video card’s power for general-purpose calculus.
If you want to see, in preview, some of User Interface news (really not much) that will be introduced, here is a link to an article that talk about them and show some intresting pictures and clips:

For the 20th anniversary of Dragon Ball the Toei Animation has made a “new” anime series of Akira Toriyama’s popular manga. Actually it’s not a sequel of Dragon Ball GT or an alternative to this one ( considering the bad feeling of the fans ith the last Dragon Ball anime series).

In addiction, all fillers are removed and they addeed new animations, and the old films are re-recorded in 16:9 and HD. The sound has been also seriously improved.
