"Z, which had been founded by a Westinghouse in 1921. The center for the Red Network was a station called W E. A F, which was founded by a TNT in 1923. While all this was going on, star enough, was already looking at the potential future of television. In 1924 Arcia transmitted the first transatlantic radio photo from New York to London. This is before the invention of electronic televisions when the early prototype TVs were largely mechanical in nature, and I talked about that in the history of television episodes on tech stuff. So there was a limited market for mechanical televisions. They really didn't make a lot of progress in the consumer market. They were very expensive, very complicated, and they had limited Successful results, Let's say, but the real Boone would come when inventors began to create Elektronik televisions, and that wouldn't begin until the late 19 twenties. And when we talk about commercial TVs you're talking about two more decades. On top of that now. This is not entirely a happy story. In 1929 Sarnoff met with an engineer at Westinghouse named Vladimir, Oregon. And if you've listened to my episode's about the origins of television you knows working is one of two inventors who typically get the title of inventor of television. The other would be file Oh Farnsworth. Sarnoff convinced Westinghouse to fund Oregon's work and in 1930 RC would take over the research as working would actually go over to see as well becoming our CIA employees. Sarnoff, Seeing the power of patents wanted to run out of business. Any person or company he felt was horning in on his action, and so in 1932 Garcia would file a patent suit against Philo Farnsworth. The case would last seven years. Ultimately, Farnsworth would win that case, and Garcia would have to pay fines and royalties to him. But by that time His health was in shambles. He had had a nervous breakdown from all the stress. And I'm going to get back to Sarnoff litigious ways throughout these episodes, but bouncing back to 1929 for a moment, So this is before all of the legality issues with Farnsworth. I need to talk about another company that would play a very important part in Garcia's early history. Now you heard my episode's about the history of turntables. You'll remember the early days of the photograph and the graf a phone and the gramophone I covered a little bit of the turbulent patent battles in the cutthroat business strategies that were all part of the early days of home audio. And I'll have to do a more in depth. Siri's in the future to really focus on it because it gets nasty. All but the victor talking machine company was born directly out of all that strife. Well, since this is not an episode about Victor, I'm just going to give you the super short version, which let's face it. I'm Jonathan Strickland of Tech Stuff. Super short for me is a lecture for anybody else. But let's go with it. The Berliner Gramophone Company of Philadelphia, founded by Emile Berliner. Was the company. That really was the focus of this this strife. Berliner gets the credit for inventing the first flat disk record before his invention, engineers would press recordings on two cylinders. So you had these cylinders that you would put on a spool. Essentially, that would then rotate and you could play it back on various devices. The disc were much easier to store right. You didn't have as much space as much bulk as a cylinder dead. They were easier to ship, and once the manufacturing process was refined, they lasted a lot longer than cylinders did as well. It took a while to get the right materials, but Once they did those disks just seemed more practical. Berliner made a deal with an enterprising manufacturer and machinist named Eldridge are Johnson Johnson developed a wind up spring motor for Berliners gramophones. No. Previously those gramophones had relied on hand cranks. So you would literally turn a crank, which would then turn the gears inside the device and turn the platter so that you could listen to the disk. Being played back on the gramophone. Johnson did good work. He created a spring motor that worked reliably, but Berliner would enter into a sales agreement with a man named Frank Seaman. And this would lead to massive trouble. Frankie wanted more money for himself and eventually began to sell knockoffs of Berliners works while simultaneously bringing legal action much of its.
A New Biography on the Life of Thomas Edison
"So it's interesting that Edmund Morris is considered such a famous biographer because really he was the biographer slowly what were his work have it's like his work habits were unusual L. Trilogy and fourteen years to do Ronald Reagan so he does is to sort of scoop up massive amounts of information and he often therefore Pamela he's a wonderful writer I mean his his pros just sings Edison left five million pages in his archive and it took wrote the book backwards it's like Benjamin Button in other words he starts with the IT complicated I found that we would you know suddenly getting people I find it inventive I as a reader and as a biographer found we don't each chapter stands on its own the problem through the index and where was this person did this person fit into Edison's earlier into traditional and that he was going to break new ground on this research he obviously had unparalleled access but in terms of did it the one thing I will say that I do know the people at the Edison Archives head to learn mechanical engineering metallurgy all kinds of stuff order you would think that telling backwards might be easier if you had someone who had conventions and also I would imagine a challenge now a hundred engines are now so out moded and there are certain things about Edison amazing I for other talent he realized that he could not do this himself and nations in the country I in Menlo Park and then in West orange where he not only kind of like you know like bell labs do afterwards and that is a remarkable shen did he make a lot of money inventions he did he did could really is sort of going. After competitor like George Westinghouse he would do anything bulb whether it was the phonograph whether it was motion Pictures Edison and that included members of his own family he was distant and he could really northern or one or two of them came to work for him he would and he did not suffer fools lightly he was a very difficult allow initially baggy clothing because he believed that tight clothing would from the age of twelve right that is correct he was completely deaf in one ear he was basically self schooled his mother took over his basement of this rural home and have all kinds of chemistry experiments that kind of inventive mind and he didn't mind putting the time and marketable so yes I would say at quite an early age whether it was at a very young age really inventing the phonograph he was enormously

AC to travel thousands miles westinghouse was all over the following year he founded the Westinghouse Electric Company and successfully brought AC systems to great Barrington Massachusetts sits in Buffalo New York word of these triumphs traveled fast in the coming months Westinghouse sold contracts twenty seven more electrical plants in the south northeast at first Edison had scoffed at his rival the now with Westinghouse establishing plants across the country things that changed for Edison this was more than a competition this was an invasion of its territory a blow to his ego this was personal and he dedicated himself to crushing Westinghouse means necessary eighteen eighty seven was not a good year for Thomas episode after just twelve months and business westinghouse had grown faster than anyone could have expected he had contracts for nearly seventy of his ABC stations and we started selling his generators to another ARC light company to power their own plans Edison was still the dominant force `electricity it forty percent more station scattered throughout the country Westinghouse was starting to encroach on his territory at first Westinghouse had focused on less populous rural areas that Edison's power couldn't reach but now he was offering his alternating current in cities going nose to nose with the pack leader when Westinghouse opens an AC plant in New Orleans It feels like an open call for war so Edison's Louisiana Manager. Wt Macho travels to New York to report the situation to the boss Aw come in Mr Macho all the way from New Orleans what news have you got for me you're not gonNa like Tom Westinghouse's robbing our business pretty bad sleep on their dammit that's my territory we've had a plant there for over a year right in the heart of town that's part of the problem just can't get power out to the smaller community the building plants every half mile to transmit the current meanwhile westinghouse is funneling his ac out to anyone from a single station in town no matter where the they live listen to me mantra. We need to squash this idea that he's gaining on us. I want our annual report to play up the dangers of AC that it that it can't be trusted mark my words it'll kill a customer within six months I want people were running in fear from Westinghouse and his damn current very well Tom but still we're going to have to come up with a way to meet demand or or what the noth- nothing good now get out Westinghouse ever expanding market share wasn't the only thing sticking Edison's Cross Edison knew he had to lengthen the transmission capabilities of DC power but the only way to do that was through highly conductive copper wire problem was in one thousand nine hundred seven the price of copper was skyrocketing going from ten cents to seventeen cents a pound copper was crucial in the burgeoning world of the industrial age it was used and Trolleys Telegraph and of course entry meaning Edison's DC power alternating current needed copper as well but only a fraction of what he needed was a major handicap for the Edison Light Company Edison was getting desperate you refuse to accept what seemed so obvious particularly to his own staff DC power was not the most practical current World Westinghouse's AC was affordable efficient and readily available whether a customer lived Ritzy Manhattan apartment or shotgun shacks spitting distance from a Mississippi swamp anxious letters from Edison employees stationed around the country were streaming into headquarters in New York as one field salesman out there is an enormous pressure everywhere I system to cover distances are we going to sit still and be called old fashioned fossils let the other fellows get a lot of the Very Best Business Istanha Shing thing was that just a year ago in eighteen eighty six edison had purchased a patent for a European AC system much to the head-scratching consternation of his forward-thinking staff heat allowed the patent to expire though Edison's concern over the deadly qualities of ACC aimed at genuine the reality was that he simply had too much invested in direct current tobacco down converting his existing DC systems would cost millions in rabbit anew and threaten his reputation which was something Thomas Edison would not entertain if he couldn't win the war on merit he was not above a less noble clan for taking out his rival but what this devious plan would be exactly that was the question in November his answer arrived in an envelope from Buffalo.

"And he ticked off. So many of his peers who are big food manufacturers. I always think of him because he lived in the super rich neighborhood in Pittsburgh with in the same number heard with Carnegie and Westinghouse a really ruthless people. And there he is saying, you know, we're just gonna invest and making better quality food. And so he actually invented modern catch up catch up in the. Nineteenth century was largely vegetable waste pump. A lot of pump gun a lot of scraps from you know, apples that have been paid for apple sauce. A lot of tomato. That's that had rotted revised and then restored with preservatives, and he really took the lead and saying, I actually believe people will buy something that is real food. He, but he to do that he had to reinvent ketchup and make it thicker and use more tomatoes. And so the catch up we have today, which I found really fascinating comes out of that fight over. Do. We have a responsibility to actually give people say food. We'll be right back after this. So listen, what do you know about the Golden State killer? I'm asking because this murder case had us thinking, it's Andrea and Brian again from base pairs, and we're excited about our latest episode which takes a closer look at the peculiar arrest of California's infamous, Golden State killer. It wasn't eyewitness testimony that reopen the seemingly unsolvable cold-case over decades of investigation. Detectives never had a lucky break, but a break in the case did finally arrive, thanks to the rising popularity of direct to consumer genetic testing services. We'll finish telling this tale a little later. So stay tuned. I have to bring up because it so fascinating coffee. There was coffee without any coffee in it. And it was issued a fake ground coffee. But they were even faking coffee beans if you thought you could go buy a bag of coffee beans and grind them yourself. Even that was fake. They had molds where they would press stuff that wasn't coffee to make it look like coffee. That's exactly right. I mean, it's such a testament does both the permissiveness of this time, but the real ingenuity of cheating that was going on and and these modes they would make coffee bean fakes out of sometimes wax and dirt or sometimes just out of clay right dark Brown. Clay died a little darker, maybe. And I was reading recently a statement from Dr Wright about the turn of the twentieth. Who said that he had come to believe that the origin of that phrase a muddy Cup of coffee. Was because there was actually so much mud in coffee from grinding these fake beans into your coffee, and the other thing that's really interesting about that is that because again, this is so acceptable at standard practice everyone. Does it it doesn't break any rules? You actually can get these. It's like advertising fliers that are sent to grocers and coffee makers and bakers saying, I can triple your profits mix my it. They're all extenders right mix. My fake coffee beans into your coffee, and you'll be ten times richer, we mix my amazing, graft gypsum.
"westinghouse" Discussed on Capital Allocators
"And at the time I got selected to do this Westinghouse science talent search, which then became Siemens and Intel and others, sir, take on sponsorship. And I worked my way into this lab, SUNY downstate in Brooklyn, and you know, probably thirteen years old. There's no way that they're gonna let some thirteen year old work in a lab, and I just wouldn't take no for an answer. This guy Dominic Aussies a PHD scientist. He took a light to me, took me under his wing, and the plan was to do this pretty sophisticated immune pathology research about the progression of a protein in aids blood that went from HIV into full blown aids. And while we're spending down centrifuge waiting for blood to come, he was treating futures and options, and I became way more numbered with capital markets. And it was like, okay, here's a guy who's making money, which is something I wanted to do, and he's doing real science. And so I literally learned everything that I learned about markets from that free giveaway guy that give you the Wall Street Journal guide to money in investing when you first. Get a subscription, and I learned what stock was and what a bond was. And then from there would network everywhere in anywhere I could to somebody that was from Brooklyn or maybe went to my high school or openly when I went to Cornell, was Cornell, Ian, that would give me a shot. And was that initial interest? He had science, but that was public markets? Yeah, public markets and the interest in venture. I mean, I didn't know what venture capital was until late nineties. Now you have this boom in internet and you see all these people, particularly there are few people at Cornell started. I think it was called the globe dot com. And all of a sudden they were young millionaires on campus that done something I, you know, go bust years later, but it was sort of inspiring wage. Second, there's this pool of capital that could be formed and you can vest and stuff that doesn't yet exist. It isn't even publicly listed. And in some cases it's off the beaten path and it's almost secret and that totally appeal to me. I mean that in different walks of life and I always loved the bands that nobody had discovered yet. I liked the New York hardcore bands and the heavy metal bands. Nobody was talking about. I love the art that was off the beaten path, and so I'd always room for the dog in sports. And so it's the same thing here. You're rooting for the scientists in these technologies that are inventing something, nobody really knows about yet. And there's this thing called venture capital, and there was a sexiness of that even right ventures like adventure, and then I just read everything. I couldn't talk to everybody I could and became Sast, and it was the perfect hybrid between science and finance. Yeah..

Brick and steel, of a nondescript building we've once again made contact with our leader Hello, everybody Mark Levin. Here our number eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one eight seven seven three eight one three eight. One one why, we have a full plate Full plate The, news outlets particularly FOX, Sky News some. Other reporting we have some deal with the European Union on non, Kar product, certain products Where the goal is to reduce or, eliminate tariffs And subsidies On non Kar products that are purchased And the way Sky News reports it Donald Trump has held a very big day for free and fair trade after reaching a deal to avert a blow a full-blown trade war with the EU, following talks with the European Commission president. John Claude Juncker at the White House Mr. Trump said the US in a you have agreed to work. To resolve their current dispute last month the US presidents slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to, prompt tit for tat measures, by Brussels including tariffs on bourbon. Whiskey Levi's jeans and Harley Davidson motorbikes. Mr. Trump had worn of retaliatory action your car makers. In a bid to de-escalate the quarrel Mr. Trump said he and Mr Juncker had agreed to work together toward. Zero-tariff, zero non-tariff barriers and zero subsidy now Mr. producer Zero tariffs zero subsidies who has. Been, preaching this Who's been preaching this and getting, calls for, some Trump supporters attacking me That we need tariffs to protect our industries Now there were some who said look, this is a negotiating tool for the president. But that's not what most said most said we need tariffs to protect our industries And what I what, have I been arguing no, get it down. As close to zero tear zero, subsidies, as possible try and work it out with, other countries if they don't go along we. Can go along anyway just do it Because money will. Flow into this country you know one of the things I meant. To mention yesterday in the past is when you talk about an imbalance? Of trade with the country one of the things that's not considered our, services and financial transactions that's a big deal for the United States just, products just products so it's. A phony number Now they're agreeing to work toward. Zero tariffs and zero subsidies On non automobile products I'm not one hundred. Percent show at that means is that includes steel and aluminum That. Would be great if it includes still aluminum but I didn't hear about stealing aluminum So we'll need to know more as time goes on, but this has been my point this, has been my argument the president campaign and say I want. Zero tariffs and zero subsidies if. I can get it from other countries and so forth that's not what he campaigned on they have genuflected. Somewhat over there. At the White House because I think you you, Lavigne I'ts out there you've been hurt I think you've been hurt by the White House which. Monitors this show That's why I. Say it's one thing to criticize the president, when we disagree with them it's, another thing to try and sabotage, him which is what the left, us which is what the media do. Which is what the Democrats do. Which is what the never. Trumpers do that's not what we do here that's not what I do So this is good if it's true if. It turns out to be accurate is what, I'm saying if they actually can, negotiate this no tariffs and no, subsidies that's the Levin position is, it not Mr. bidder I won't go. Back and play the audio over. And over and over again But that's our position And let's see, how this works out I hope it does Now I may wind up being tougher on. China than most people I'm not looking for. Trade deals with, China I'm not looking. For currency deals with China China's the enemy China's stealing our technology what kind of deal? Can we cut with China to stop them from stealing our technology But our allies I've never understood Why, we would treat. Them like China So free trade apparently is very very, important because now everybody's talking about it Everybody's talking about why Because. It's better for everybody that's why And now our companies have. To compete and our farmers will compete they're happy. To compete Perfectly fine by me Let's do it, in, steel and aluminum too Let's, remove all of our tariffs and subsidies well, only if the other guy does it well we should try, and ask the other guy to, do it but if. They don't do it they don't do, it Then more and more money will, flow in our country Money finances which doesn't. Even count towards the quote unquote imbalance of trade anyway We'll see, how this develops over time. There I hate getting into this stuff with this Michael Cohen and. The tape I hate it when the when the pseudo media drives the agenda but I've heard so much misinformation and disinformation and ignorance when it comes to our federal, campaign laws and whether Trump is on the hook for violating our campaign loss he's, led, to, a close to being on the hook, for violating our campaign laws I had Bradley Smith on this program. A few months ago the former chairman of the Federal Election Commission he wrote a beautiful piece in the Wall Street Journal he spoke at length us and he's coming, back at the bottom of the hour so we can go through this yet again You can have a nondisclosure agreement I've been saying. This now for months. Months months months with stormy Daniels or anybody else a nondisclosure, agreement is not hush money a nondisclosure agreement. Is not illegal a nondisclosure agreement even in a campaign. Is not a campaign violation and in no circumstances is it criminal this entire issue as another shiny object it's another phony issue That CNN they got the tape obviously from Lanny Davis when you, see Lanny Davis there yes ambulance chasing slip and fall. Lawyer that's right Lanny Every damn lie the Clintons ever. Told Lanny. Defendant So, now he's, there Michael. Cohen's lawyer trashing the president this. Guy Michael Cohen what a sleazeball I never spoke to him in my life. I never communicated with. Them in my life what a, sleazeball you're, taping your. Client apparently repeatedly Got a dozen tapes What are you going to? Do with. The tapes Sarah counselor you're gonna use. It against your client Incredible I think the New York bar ought to be taking a look at. This they're probably cheering on Michael Cohen and Lanny Davis right now. Too Colin could turn on Trump who cares if he turns on Trump a nondisclosure agreement with a payment is is. Legal while he might have set up an LLC a corporation to launder the. Money through without Trump's name on it in order to doesn't matter You're not laundering money they're LLC's I love place There's nothing illegal. There's nothing shifty there's, nothing wrong. With an LLC I don't. Have one but people have them Under our tax laws Perfectly permissible Well that way they won't know who's making, the payment who cares The issue here's Michael Cohen the issue is what the hell's Lanny Davis doing. In, the middle of this trashing the president of the. United States Well Cohen's gonna turn on Trump turn on Trump about what Here, we, are going. Down, another rabbit hole Russia now.
