Take me back to June 24, 2003

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

It is Tuesday, June 24, 2003. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Cancer. The summer of 2003 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September.

In America, the song "This Is The Night" by Clay Aiken is at the top of the singles charts, while "Bring Me To Life" by Evanescence is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Hulk is at the top of the box office. Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

In technology news, more and more people are beginning to gain access to the Internet. Internet speeds are increasing and MP3 sharing is beginning to threaten the existence of music stores. People are using a software program called LimeWire to share music, software, and videos. Unfortunately, it is also a haven for computer viruses. Smartphones don't exist yet. There are no Androids or iPhones.

Cameras on phones are quickly becoming the norm. However, the photographs that they take are still lacking in quality. It's 2003, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of 50 Cent, R. Kelly, Sean Paul, 3 Doors Down, Nelly, Evanescence, Chingy and Beyonce. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Barry White, Bob Hope, Charles Bronson, and John Ritter would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Sex and the City", "The Royle Family", "The Sopranos", and "Alias". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Kingdom Hearts", "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4", "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", and "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "7th Heaven", "SpongeBob SquarePants", "My Wife and Kids", and "Kim Possible".

Popular toys at the moment include HitClips audio player, Bratz dolls, Bratz Stylin' Salon 'N' Spa, and Bionicle LEGO.
