Yeah, I guess my list is a bit y-chromosome biased.

Glad you mentioned electronic ignition.  Cars today actually start!  That's a major improvement over cars that made a "ngngngng" noise but didn't go anywhere.  I've had a few of those.

Some of the most important are also the ones which we have a love/hate relationship.

Telephones - Telemarketers, instant access to anyone
Computers - Viruses and Windows 8
Cars - Repair and maintenance bills, cost of gas
Bottled water - $1/pint vs $2-3/1000 gallons from the tap
Gyms - The drudge of going
Church - Morally bankrupt clergy and holy wars
Government - Corrupt politicians and awful political systems
Art - Good bad and just plain ugly works
Nuclear weapons - Press a button and wipe out the planet
Insurance - Pay pay pay and pray you never have to collect

They should have invented the remote first.  I spent years of my life getting up off the couch to change the channel.  If they'd invented the remote first, I could have bought one; then when they invented the TV, I'd be ready.

I left out GPS.  Not much point in having a car that starts if you can't get to where you're going.

Also, porn.  That's up there somewhere.

Then there is guacamole.  Primitive man (Homo preguacamolensis) was forced to eat avocados straight off the tree!  It's true!  But with the invention of guacamole, civilization leaped forward to the modern Guacamole Age.

A moment of silence, please, in honor of guacamole.
