The Tesla is a scientific unit that measures magnetic flux density.

I henceforth will start promoting the Edison as a social unit that measures douchebaggery density in the Interwebz ;)

PS: And isn't telling how the one article trying to defend Edison's legacy... is hosted by Forbes? :P

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!
