The "Arab Spring" began during this period. Throughout the Middle East, a wave of demonstrations and protests were taking place. Governments were falling, concessions were being made and civil wars were breaking out.
From 2010 onward, video rental stores such as Blockbuster slowly began to close down. This was due to the popularity of new online streaming services such as Netflix and the Internet in general. Although a few stores and franchises continued to hobble along, it was only a matter of time before they were also forced to close their doors.
During this period, smartphones with touchscreens and 3G Internet capabilities started to replace the "dumber" cell phones of the past. Up until this point, the focus had been on making phones that were smaller and more compact. However, rising mobile Internet usage and the introduction of higher quality phone cameras started to reverse this trend. As a result, phones started to get larger.
As online streaming became more popular, sales of DVDs started to plummet. Between 2008 and 2014, sales in the USA fell by a whopping 66%.
