I didn't know that?
With the introduction of our new Tungsten Carbide Magnetic Bracelet "The Edison" we have to add a bit of little known local knowledge about the "Man" himself.....as follows
Did you know that Thomas Edison didn’t want his phonograph sold for amusement purposes? He said, “It’s not a toy. It is for business purposes only.”
Isn’t it amazing how much “amusement” and joy his phonograph brought to people when it was meant to be used for “business” purposes only? (The left-side of his brain was definitely sneaking in there, wouldn’t you say?)
And . . .
Alexander Graham Bell insisted that “Hoy! Hoy!” was the only “proper” way to answer a telephone. It was Edison who popularized “hello” instead.
Thank goodness! Hoy Hoy would be a little MUCH, even for someone like me. Think of what fun you could have with a fact like that.
Did you know that Richard Reynolds invented metal foil wrap–but not for food. He invented it at the request of his uncle, cigarette czar R.J. Reynolds, to keep tobacco fresh.
Here’s another “did you know” –
In September of 1988, George Eastman patented his roll film camera and registered the name Kodak. He coined the name because he wanted a distinctive name and because he really liked the letter K.
