Why do race horses have their tongues tied?

Well, first of all, they don’t know how to talk, so they get hung up. Then there’s the language barrier, so you have to explain what’s going on to the other horse.

We might also think of a radio receiver which could play music on the frequency of the child’s heartbeat, and, in fact, this is what an audio telephone was invented in 1901. Many other devices were developed in the early decades of wireless communication, the most notable among which was the telephone (the first mobile phone was invented by French inventors in 1895) and the telegraph.

The Internet (1997-present)

The first wireless Internet connection to date was made in 1997 when the first commercial service was delivered in Australia between Sydney and Melbourne by the University of Melbourne via its Wireless Network Service (WNS). Nowadays, over 30,000 websites link to each other via WNS, which is a great service for the internet users, as it allows them to get information directly to each other from across all possible websites from many locations.

The earliest wireless Internet connections used short-range transmitters, such as those created by
