The date is May 26th, 2009, and it's a Tuesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. The summer of 2009 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up, and the evenings are brighter than usual.
In the United States, the Memorial Day weekend of 2009 has recently come and gone. To many, this means that the summer has officially started.

Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and the movie Night at the Museum II is at the top of the box office. Gordon Brown is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. 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 growing social network called Facebook is beginning to steal users away from MySpace and Bebo. Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are struggling to compete with online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. A music genre called Dubstep has started to go mainstream.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Billy Mays, and Steve McNair would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition", "How I Met Your Mother", "Eureka", and "Ugly Betty".
Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Mafia Wars", "Battlefield: Bad Company", "Call of Duty: World at War", and "Minecraft". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Dora the Explorer", "The Hills", "The Suite Life on Deck", and "Glee". Popular toys at the moment include the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3, Iggle Piggle, and WALL-E toys.

Smartphones with touchscreens and 3G Internet capabilities started replacing the "dumber" push-button cellphones of the past.

Online video streaming was becoming increasingly popular. New services such as Netflix and Hulu were gaining millions of users, and video rental stores such as Blockbuster were struggling to stay afloat. As sales and rentals declined, small video stores started closing. Meanwhile, the larger franchises attempted to downsize and branch out into selling other products, such as cellphones and merchandise.
HD TV quickly became the norm during this time, as flat-screen televisions were starting to fall in price.
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.
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.
"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.
