I have talked at length about the printing press, so I won't go into any more detail.

I just decided to kill of the smellyphone because it was low.

Why didn't this list include the wheel or the lever or math or language?

@BoltBait:

I've tried to leave out the basic Simple Machines (screw, wheel, pulley, lever) as those are so basic. These are slightly higher-level inventions, the creators/discoverers of which we can get pretty close to identifying.

I didn't want to include the ones that distinguish us from the apes. I wanted to be more higher-level than that; if we were to pick only one of these to have an effect on our society, which would it be? We can't do that with the more basic ones because they are, essentially, the same invention: The "Simple Machine." And our very existence is predicated on that. It'd be nigh impossible to choose one, and pitting them against these, they'd blow away all competition. So I decided to go with the slightly-less earth shattering.

What's with the hurting of the Printing Press? I really don't understand.

I'm so sad about the lack of history education in the world today...
