HD TV quickly became the norm during this time, as flat-screen televisions were starting to fall in price.
"No Country for Old Men" won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2007.
Internet access on cellphones became common in the late 2000s. This transition was aided by the rollout of faster 3G Internet networks and the introduction of larger touchscreen phones. Although many phones had Internet features at the start of the decade, they were often awkward and costly to use.
Two HD DVD formats called Blu-ray and HD DVD were competing with each other to become the de facto high-definition standard. During this "war", certain movies and TV shows could only be found on Blu-ray or HD DVD, as film studios quickly aligned themselves with the format that they wanted to win. In rental stores, it was common to see a separate section for both of these formats. Of course, this often led to people buying or renting the wrong one.
During the 2000s, people often brought digital cameras with them to clubs and bars. The following day, they would upload their photographs to social media websites such as Facebook, MySpace, and Bebo. Although most phones had cameras, their picture quality was bad, especially in darker settings such as nightclubs.
By this stage, a new social network called Bebo had become a huge hit in countries such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, and New Zealand. Bebo was famous for its quizzes, auto-playing video box, whiteboard, "Bebo Skins," and "Bebo Luv" features.
Many music stores were closing their doors for the last time. The ease of downloading and streaming music meant that the business model of selling CDs was quickly becoming nonviable.
A controversial fad called "Happy Slapping" originated in the United Kingdom during the mid-2000s. The trend involved slapping someone for the sole purpose of recording the incident with a camera phone.
MySpace was the most popular social network in the world between 2005 and 2008. The site gave users the ability to customize their profiles by editing HTML and embedding songs. It also had chat rooms and other features.
"Scene Kids" became a big subculture in the latter half of the decade. Their fashion consisted of skinny jeans, bright colors, and straight hair with long fringes.
