'Bout time we honored The company's namesake. On Friday 1/30 at 9:00pm my Tivo recorded the History channel program "Mad Electricity". A one hour program on Tesla the Inventor. For those familiar with the man it was filled with the usual stuff but there was a new twist were they tied him into being "green". To that there was this Tesla quote: Oh, and the show gave a few moments to the car bearing his name.
