Edison was a crook. He paid off people to create things and then took the credit or try to prove the ones who couldn't be bought wrong. Tesla by far is the greatest of all time. Electric motor and alternating current...need I say more.

C'mon man.
Tesla should be at the top of the list. Thomas Edison was a great inventor but Tesla was the first and true mad scientist.

Nikola Tesla.
Far and away the greatest of all time, and most important to us today.
AC electricity; electric motor; radio; remote control; some X-rays; fluorescent light; Tesla coil; etc.
Edison was a businessman, but in terms of inventors, he couldn't even shine Tesla's shoes.

Tesla is the greatest inventor of all time.Why? Well every electric gadget you use would have a bit of Tesla in it.He was the first to patent the logic gate for computers.Also a lot of his work he could not afford to patent and just wrote about it in his jounals for others to take and get the credit.

All I got to say is that Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest Inventors who walked this earth and its a shame that only few people know about him, so I would suggest to people who would like to know more about him to watch this "The Missing Secrets of Nikola Tesla"
