Social trends I missed

I was just thinking about my novels and realized I haven’t needed to spend a lot of time in the minute details of describing the society in general. What’s popular, favorite music, etc.
I thought about our own social bandwagons, and realized I’d missed the boat on a few key trends
1. Ipod. Never listened to music much until I got my Android phone. I missed out on years of on demand musical bliss.
2. Goatees. Damn, I would have looked good.
3. Starbucks. Not that I don’t like coffee, it’s just not a requirement for normal brain function. It has saved me millions, I figure.
4. The bluetooth headset. Thought about it, then realized I didn’t want to look like a Borg or those folks from the episode of Doctor Who where everyone had a pair of the things and they all got turned into Cybermen. What a crapper.
5. Hairstyles. Yes, I avoided that fashion train, though only because I crave low maintenance. Short hair, held in place with a dollop of goop from Target. Easy enough!

Did I miss anything truly groundbreaking that you wish to mock me for? I’m ready, hit me…

    Never been one myself to chase the trends of the world and am proud to say I have NEVER had a starbucks politically correct coffee. It society dictates MUST DO whatever it immediately goes to the bottom of my list.
