10 pictures that will transport you back to the early noughties

Some of these things were, in fact, cool back then.

THE EARLY NOUGHTIES were a very interesting time.

We were rich, for one thing, and spent a lot of time enjoying our new-found wealth.

When we weren’t having fun with our new mobile phones (they can take PICTURES) and listening to the latest Britney Spears offering, we were setting up Bebo pages and chatting with friends on MSN.

Here are some pictures that will take you right back to those days.
