    A major difference between them is how the current system is interrupted. For example, in political system, revolution imples the overthrow of the existing government and replacing it with a new one that is typically incompatible with the old one.

    In communication, telephony is a revolution (not innovation) for how it transport information (via electric pulse) is totally different from the old/existing ways.

    Nano tech and fusion may be our next industrial revolutions. Others, like Intel Quad Core or DDR3 memory are only innovations.
