* In 2013, Microsoft released Windows 8. While its austere graphics became an instant success, it was heavily criticized by PC owners for performance issues to the point they had to rename their Windows Nine into Windows 10, which would be perennially updated (although these have proven to be an annoyance for most users) rather than be replaced eventually by a "Windows 11".
** The company has also entered the manufacturing game after acquiring Nokia, with its existing lines of smartphones and tablets and the Surface line of computers slowly becoming creditable rivals to Apple (the Surface Pro desktop computer was lauded as more innovative than many Apple projects of recent years).

** Adding to the issue is {{Newgrounds}}, once the poster boy of mocking anyone and everyone had deleted a controversial flash game of AnitaSarkeesian, a vocal feminist whose personal web series Tropes vs Women has drawn ire from the internet ranging from threats made on her channel to outright slander outside the internet. This has caused a natural divide within the internet who is split between keeping Feminism from stifling their opinions on the internet and creating a generation of "Herbivore males" and those who would support women's rights on the internet front.

* On the other side, DreamworksAnimation's reputation improved with more story-driven, less-jokey efforts beginning with ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' in 2008 and ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' in 2010, however the studio's movies became increasingly intellectual and/or cloying since then, hurting it's financial position to the point it almost went bankrupt after a series of failures (Pacific Data was closed in December 2014). DW returned to the old formula with 2015's ''WesternAnimation/{{Home}}'', which became a major commercial hit, as it happened to ''Kung Fu Panda 3''.

* Urban music has remained popular in spite of the fact GlamRap and other popular genres of the 2000s have become DeaderThanDisco. Newer takes on hip-hop now come in two different flavors: a) Revisiting R&B and other genres, often with some social commentary, or b) Crossing over with EDM, with some "featured" performances alongside pop artists. Some artists, like Music/KendrickLamar have managed to do both however.

AlternativeRock acts such as Music/{{Coldplay}} and Music/{{Muse}} have also abandoned their "new prog" sound for a more pop-friendly style.

** [[BoyBand Boy bands]] have started to make a comeback after being DeaderThanDisco for almost a decade; this time, they were crafted in Bieber's mold. Due to Bieber's astronomical popularity, none of these boy bands were able to attain much success worldwide...

After conquering the UK in 2011, One Direction started to rapidly grow an international fanbase, and when they released their "Up All Night" album in the US, it debuted at number-one on the Billboard 200, a feat unheard of for a British band's debut album. One Direction became so massive that not only did other boy bands that struggled in Bieber's presence get further hammered down, but Bieber's own popularity was dramatically hemorrhaged (his personal scandals didn't help either).

** Explicit sexuality has lost momentum not only by the prevalence of less revealing clothes and that sex has mostly been relegated to apps like Tinder, but also the end of the symbols of the "sexual revolution" of the 1960s: ''[[UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers The Sun]]'' dropped its PageThreeStunna in early 2015, while ''Playboy'' announced that its iconic centerfold would be no more by its February 2016 issue, which introduced a style more akin to "lads' mags" like ''Esquire'' and ''GQ''(though they have since revered this decision). Retailers such as Abercrombie and Fitch and perfume companies have also reduced [[PoorMansPorn their ads' sexual content]].

* UsefulNotes/{{Norway}} twas taken unawares by the June 22 attacks in 2011, and although the general feeling of support on behalf of the wictims lingered - that is mostly the 69 people gunned down at the Labour Party Youth summer camp (as well as the eight bomb victims in Oslo) - the effect also was political. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, leading a left wing coalition, was blamed for sloppy security, and the words of the ''Breivik Manifesto'', written as a kind of mish-mash by the gunman himself, actually stirred the anti-immigration sentiment in the country. The following general election in 2013 gave majority to a new right wing coalition, reigning to this day, although with great resentment from groups who initially voted for them. During this time, the anti-EU bloc has gained support as well.
