Top 100 Gadgets of All time

Dvorak Uncensored has this piece:

"Mobile PC - Features - The Top 100 Gadgets of All Time — Generlally speaking I’m not a big fan of lists unless I do them myself and even then I’m dubious. That said, this is one of the most fun an interesting lists I’ve seen in a long time. Good reading.


It has to have electronic and/or moving parts of some kind. Scissors count, but the knife does not.

It has to be a self-contained apparatus that can be used on its own, not a subset of another device. The flashlight counts; the light bulb does not. The notebook counts, but the hard drive doesn’t.

It has to be smaller than the proverbial bread box. This is the most flexible of the categories, since gadgets have gotten inexorably smaller over time. But in general we included only items that were potentially mobile: The Dustbuster counts; the vacuum cleaner doesn’t."


Can you guess what is Number One?
