Practically every teenager and adult has a MySpace or a Bebo account. A rock music genre called "Emo" is extremely popular at the moment. The genre, which stands for "emotional hardcore", has created a subculture of "Emos" who dye their hair black and wear thick frame glasses. Meanwhile, in technology news, more and more people are beginning to use the Internet on their phones. This transition towards mobile Internet has been aided by the recent roll-out of faster 3G networks and the introduction of larger touchscreen phones.

A social network called Facebook is beginning to surge in popularity, replacing the likes of MySpace. Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are currently struggling to keep their heads above water. This is due to the popularity of new online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. It's 2008, so the music charts are filled with artists such as Flo Rida, Katy Perry, Rihanna and T.I.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as George Carlin, Bernie Mac, John Costelloe and Test would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "The Shield", "CSI: Miami", "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and "House".
