A picture from the crypts of Dendera: Eastern relief on south wall

There's a strong belief that it was actually the Egyptians that created the idea of electricity. So, did Thomas Edison borrow the idea/structure from them?

What's being implied is that Steve Jobs needed the help of other inventors creations in order to complete his own, but so did Thomas Edison.

Here is the link where I found the picture I posted. It also explains further on the theory that Egyptians created electricity. http://www.world-mysteries.com/sar_lights_fd1.htm

Edison invented many amazing things like the light blub, electricity, motion picture, Edison Effect and many others. Jobs used inventions by others to build new and exciting creative ideas and machines.

Is there an article on this topic to read for the exam?

Edisons inventions were also evolved around others just as Jobs inventions were however Edison influenced changes that affect us forever, while we can live without Jobs inventions. This topic is definitely my pick! Its interesting that the two are related frequently, I had no idea. I found a lot of information on the comparisons and contrasts between the two Im actually excited to write about this. Thanks for the post on the Egyptians, it was really helpful. The whole topic of boh of them using others ideas to model their own will be a good paragraph!
