- The Savage Tale of the First Standards War
- By: Tom McNichol
- Narrated by: Malcolm Hillgartner
- Length: 6 hrs and 28 mins
Long before there was VHS versus Betamax, Windows versus Macintosh, or Blu-Ray versus HD-DVD, the first and nastiest standards war was fought over how electricity would be transmitted around the world: alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC). The savage showdown between AC and DC changed the lives of billions of people, shaped the modern technological age, and set the stage for all standards wars to follow.
An incredible true story
