WiFi wasn't created by a woman :-spat


Hasbro are reaching very far saying WiFi was created by a woman. They are talking about Hedy Lamarr and spread-spectrum but Hasbro didn't mention that she worked with George Antheil (another toxic white guy inventor). It's not even in the same ballpark as Wifi so Hasbro are pushing their luck with that statement.

from wikipedia:

At the beginning of World War II, she and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes, intended to use frequency-hopping spread spectrum technology to defeat the threat of jamming by the Axis powers. Although the US Navy did not adopt the technology until the 1960s, various spread-spectrum techniques are incorporated into Bluetooth technology and are similar to methods used in legacy versions of Wi-Fi.[8][9][10] This work led to their induction into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014.


I don't want to shit on Hedy Lamarr BUT reading about her and seeing pictures of her and George Antheil

it's like the equivalent of reading on Wikipedia in 70 years time that Kim Kardashian cured cancer with a very small help from Robert Winston :-lol
