The great inventor Tesla. Of his many marvelous inventions, one mentioned is Free Wireless telecommunications. “It is intended to give practical demonstrations of these principles with the plant illustrated. As soon as completed, it will be possible for a business man in New York to dictate instructions, and have them instantly appear in type at his office in London or elsewhere. He will be able to call up, from his desk, and talk to any telephone subscriber on the globe, without any change whatever in the existing equipment.
An inexpensive instrument, not bigger than a watch, will enable its bearer to hear anywhere, on sea or land, music or song, the speech of a political leader, the address of an eminent man of science, or the sermon of an eloquent clergyman, delivered in some other place, however distant. In the same manner any picture, character, drawing, or print can be transferred from one to another place.
Millions of such instruments can be operated from but one plant of this kind. More important than all of this, however, will be the transmission of power, without wires, which will be shown on a scale large enough to carry conviction.”
The True Wireless, which includes a comparison of the Tesla and Marconi systems, affirms this conclusion
And in a July 1899 letter from the Colorado Springs lab, Tesla writes to an assistant:
Dear Mr. Scherff,
We want as soon as possible four sizes of this little instrument completed in annexed sketch and there ought to be two pieces of each size, that is, 8 pieces in all. These pieces are to go on the clockworks as Mr. Uhlman will surely understand...
...Push this work through as quickly as possible, as I am preparing myself for the plant at Nantucket (for the government) and want to have as much work done as possible before I return....
N. Tesla [End Quote ]
Please notice how similar our fax, internet, etc. is today 100 plus years latter. But not Free like Tesla envisioned. Of course the BIG question is Who is George Scherff?

I've been experiencing a drop in traffic for the last week or so. I've been seeing a lot of people in the forums talking about how they are seeing increases in traffic, but I am seeing the opposite. Is anyone else seeing a drop in traffic?

Is anyone else here feeling pretty much turned off by the elitist moderators on HubPages?Their explanations for allowing some questions to stand and banning others are beyond lame. Then there is that "thing" of banning decent people without explanation and choosing not to respond to...

Is anyone else really really proud of our protesting country?Pride is not an emotion I thought would have been very prevelant for me after Trump took office; but I find myself impressed with protestors coming out every time Trump does something silly - which happens often, LoL! United we stand,...

Hi, everyone you might want to check the internet for your work. I've now found 3 of my articles on Facebook sites, Pinterest and on a blog site. I am not sure I can post the name here. They seem to have stolen a few articles I have read on here. If you have medical or heal dove pages some have...

HP keeps wanting to not load all the way--the spinning circle rarely stops; the page freezes up and you can't navigate, and I keep seeing, "Shockwave flash has crashed" or "Shockwave plugin has stopped working" or the dreaded "Oh, snap! Something went wrong...

Is anyone else afraid of adding summaries to their hubs?In general, my hubs that have a summary do not do as well as my hubs that do not have a summary. All of my best hubs do not have summaries. I know it is suggested to add a summary to every hub but this makes me afraid...
