Greatest Gadgets

PC World has an "idiosyncratic" list of the 50 Greatest Gadgets of the Last 50 Years.

All but one of them were invented in my lifetime. I have owned 6 of them:

1. Sony Walkman TPS-L2 (1979)
7. Atari Video Computer System (1977)
23. Kodak Instamatic 100 (1963)
25. Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 100 (1983)
32. Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer (1999)
36. Iomega Zip Drive (1995)

I haved owned second generation or other manufacturer's similar items of 25 other items on the list.

Can I trade in my baby boomer generation status and join the gadget generation?
