This site tells a different story: http://inventors.about.com/library/inventors/blfax.htm
Namely that the fax was invented in 1824 by Scotsman Alexander Bain and the photo-electric fax in 1902 by German Arthur Korn. Giovanni Caselli ran a telepgraph service in France from 1865-1870. All of these must predate Mr. Hell - so what did he invent? --rmhermen
- Hell's landmark invention was a machine for transmitting text that electronically broke up letters into a stream of dots reassembled at the receiving end, in effect the first telefax.
- Whoever wrote this is a complete idiot!!! Rudolf Hellishness lived to be 100, in my opinion thats pretty f***n old!!!!
Most amusing, I'm sure. Peculiar the way he censors himself... --Camembert
