Given that the word gadget has been in use since the 19th Century, they have been a part of life for everyone around today. The modern definition of gadget is a broad one. Some people insist that gadgets have to be electrical products to be classed in this manner while other people suggest that any tool or item that makes your life easier deserves to be classed as a gadget.
