Maybe I'm late to the game, but has anyone ever pointed this obviously weird fact?
Tesla (the company) was obviously named as such to pay an homage to Nikola Tesla. Nikola Tesla was not only a proponent of alternating current (AC), but a staunch opponent of direct current (DC). The odd fact is that that the Tesla relies heavily on DC propulsion technology to make it's cars cars work. Shouldn't the company have been called Edison? But wait. Edison, in one form or another, already exists and provides DC electricity to millions of American households.
I'm not looking for an answer. I could write more detail about all of this, but I just want to make your brains hurt for a little while.
