CNN compiled an interesting list of old technologies Americans used then, and summarized how they impacted daily life differently:
The list mentions Netflix DVD rentals, but let me say that Blockbuster video was far more popular at the time. Most Americans went to brick-and-mortar stores to rent movies--which were still mostly VHS tapes--for about $4 apiece.
In 2000, the election campaign was underway, and I remember commentary about how Bush and Gore were both such boring and similar candidates, and how there was widespread disinterest in politics among the electorate.
Yup, there was no social media, very few minors had cell phones, and texting was laborious since cell phones didn't have keyboards and instead you had to click each number on the keypad multiple times to select a letter of the alphabet. Actual phone calls happened all the time, many times per day.
Even though the technology was worse, I remember people being happier, less stressed, and more optimistic in 2000 than they are today. Pax Americana hadn't ended yet, Russia was still friendly and hadn't re-emerged as a challenger, China was still too weak to pose a real threat, the Bosnian civil war was over, liberal democracy was expanding throughout the world and it was assumed the trend would continue indefinitely, 9/11 hadn't happened, the economy was growing robustly, everyone was making money in the stock market, the news media was still somewhat objective, the Space Shuttle program was still going strong, etc.
