Schools and colleges are starting again, and fall has officially arrived. As a result, temperatures are beginning to cool, and trees are starting to shed their leaves. The earthy smells of autumn have started to fill the air. In America, the song "Music" by Madonna is at the top of the singles charts, while "Lady" by Modjo is the number-one song in the UK.

Although the technology has been around since the mid-1990s, it was only recently that cell providers allowed users to send SMS messages to people on different networks.

In technology news, more and more music companies are beginning to release MP3 players. The new MP3 format means that music listeners are able to listen to multiple albums on the go. It's the year 2000, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Christina Aguilera, Faith Hill, Savage Garden, Destiny's Child, Santana, Sisqó, Creed, Aaliyah and Enrique Iglesias. Meanwhile, the Nokia 3310 is one of the most popular cellphones on the market at the moment. Stores across the world are currently selling a wide range of custom covers for the phone.

Rock band Papa Roach have just released their single "Last Resort". If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Yokozuna, Kirsty MacColl, Dale Earnhardt, and Jennifer Syme would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Baywatch", "JAG", "Sex and the City", and "Roswell".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Mario Party", "Medal of Honor", "Perfect Dark", and "Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes".
