Question of the Day

Jul 13, 2017

Yesterday we asked: What 1930s starlet helped invent a frequency hopping technology that was ultimately implemented during the Cold War and became the basis for modern Bluetooth technology?

Answer: It was Hedy Lamarr, who was clearly more than just “the world’s most beautiful woman.” And as several people helpfully pointed out, that’s Hedy, not Hedley.

Congrats to...Deirdre Blake, first to tweet the correct answer, and honorable mention to Mark Harper, who directed us to this You Must Remember This podcast episode.

Your question of the day for today is…Penn & Teller first began performing together as part of magic act with their friend Wier Chrisemer. What was the name of the group?
