If something as simple as the origin of the original laptop can be misconstrued, what else are we missing?
Bloomberg Innovation Rankings
According to a Bloomberg poll of 3,000 senior executives in 22 countries, Switzerland won “most innovative” country for the fourth year in a row in 2014, followed by Sweden and the United States. Many think the US has a lock at the top of creativity and innovation rankings, but it came in sixth in 2015. But this may just be a case of the victor rewriting history.
India Getting Short Shrift
India didn’t even make the top 50 in either year, but as the following video shows, the Indians invented the laptop and WiFi in 1952. It’s likely that Steve Jobs picked up the idea for Apple’s original laptop while visiting the ashram of Guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1974. The image at the top of this article looks very similar to the original laptop in the following video!
