iphone tricks or technology giving superpowers

i've rambled before about technology giving god-like powers. arthur c clarke once said that any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. how far back in time would you have to go before each of these was indistinguishable from magic? discuss in the form of an essay:
  • box of matches
  • mirror
  • nikko pen/sharpie
  • motorbike
  • aeroplane
  • camera
  • radio
  • telephone
  • tv
  • gps
  • youtube
  • google maps
  • streetview
  • ipod shuffle
  • iphone 3G
  • teleporter machine
