Yes, my analogy with Steve Jobs was not flippant- Edison's genius (and Jobs's as well) was recognizing products people wanted before they knew they wanted them.

Westinghouse did not invent AC nor was he nearly as successful as Edison.

Kind of ironic bashing DC on a site that converts AC into usable DC for projects isn't it?
Me tinks you should work on your reading comprehension and review who was actually doing the bashing ...

DC bashing? I love DC, but not for power transmission. (Edison couldnt even get power to the top floor of the Empire state building from the main floor). We use DC for what its good at, and AC for what its good at. Edison never got that.

What is common knowledge today was not so during Edison's time , you need to be a bit more cogent when discussing these things ...

Can you do GloBug for impersonating a mod? The mix of colours in all those icons is horrible, but not against forum rules. He slipped in a Cop, so you can get him for the forum equivalent of tax evasion.
