Get your nerd on!
Via MeFi I see the 50 Greatest Gadgets of All Time. Of course, since the list comes from PCWorld, it's more of a greatest tech gadgets of all time. For all-purpose gadgetry, I'd certainly include things like the drip coffeemaker (I'm always genuinely surprised that percolators are even made anymore, since their resulting coffee tastes like crap), the phonograph, and the astrolabe. (Yeah, it's a gadget. Just because it was invented in something like 1200 AD doesn't render it a non-gadget!)
