Internet speeds are increasing and MP3 sharing is beginning to threaten the existence of music stores. A popular software program called LimeWire is currently being used by many people to share music, software and videos. It is also a haven for computer viruses.

Internet users are using MSN Messenger to chat with each other online. Cameras on phones have become the norm. Furthermore, the quality of these cameras are continuing to increase with each new phone release. We are now entering into an age where any event can be photographed or recorded in an instance. Practically every teenager and adult has a MySpace or a Bebo account.

Satirical factoids about actor Chuck Norris are extremely popular at the moment. These "Chuck Norris Facts" consist of absurd hyperbolic claims about Norris' toughness.

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal", "Football Manager 2005", "Half-Life 2" and "Lego Star Wars: The Video Game". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Dora the Explorer", "As Told by Ginger", "Peppa Pig" and "Veronica Mars".

If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as Betty Spaghetty (doll), VideoNow (portable player), RoboSapien (toy robot) and the Nintendo DS.
