* As an ironic historical note, had Tesla beat Edison at the whole electricity business and broadcast electricity become the dominant business model, modern electronics would have to have evolved in a radically different direction, since shooting loads of high frequency alternating current through the air is seriously bad news for transistors. His innovative genius would have hit a wall, as he completely rejected atomic theory, instead choosing to see electricity as a kind of ethereal fluid. The fact that many of his energy-directing schemes were also complete nonsense, they would have strangled transistor technologies in the crib.
