Great historical piece about the birth of wireless telegraphy. Think about this next time you’re on your wi-fi hotspot reading comics on your iPad!

We must point out that the history lesson here ignores the contributions of Nikola Tesla. Tesla discovered the principles of wireless communication before Marconi. Tesla fought an arduous and ultimately losing patent battle against Marconi!
