/r/Backin1985 metrics (Investigating the change between 1985 and the real 2015)

Imagine if Back to the Future was made today, in 2015 (it's 2014, close enough), with a teenager going back in time to 1985. What would be the shocking differences they'd encounter? (technology, culture, politics, media, fashion, architecture, etc) Inspired by this scenario, this subreddit exists to investigate how the world has/hasn't changed since 1985.
