We’ve often been told that Alexander Graham Bell wouldn’t recognize today’s smartphone, but that Thomas Edison would feel right at home with the present-day electric grid. However, the ability to make that comparison is going the way of the incandescent lightbulb.

(He might also be a bit jealous that the most valuable car company in the world carries the Tesla name.)
