That was a horrible list.

for these to be top innovations, they'd still have to be present in current systems

10. Left-handed design - Gone
7. Accelerometer - Gone
6. Nintendo e-Reader - Gone
4. Mobile Phone Adapter - Gone
3. Backwards Compatibility - Gone
1. Dual Screens - Not an innovation. One bigger screen is far superior.
