The Top 100 Gadgets of All Time
But let's lay some ground rules before we get started. What defines a "gadget" anyway?
• 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.
In the end, we tried to get to the heart of what really makes a gadget a gadget.
FYI: iPod is #12, Pocket PC is #49, Palm OS is #43, CF Card is #38, Gameboy is #25, and #1 is by Apple.
