The story about how the world’s largest wire manufacturer, Japanese company Panasonic, discovered a way to turn its power cables into a cheap, cheap and convenient way to charge mobile devices is a story about our interconnected world.
And, in some ways, it’s just the kind of story we need more of.
The story also has a lot to do with the way we’re going to use our power.
We’ve been using electricity for more than half a century.
In 1900, the US government issued the first federal regulation for the transmission of electricity to and from homes and businesses, known as the Public Utility Act.
It required that utilities provide customers with a way of getting electricity when and where they wanted it.
The law didn’t apply to electric utility lines, but it did make it easier for them to connect to power plants.
In the decades since, the power industry has grown to more than 1,300 companies that are in more than 500 different countries.
But for a while, electricity transmission was seen as a problem for everyone.
The transmission lines were just a cheap way of sending electricity to distant homes and the like.
But then in the early 20th century, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, figured out how to make electricity more reliable.
In 1891, they discovered that a voltage that came from a conductor was much more likely to go into a battery, than from a wire that came out of a battery.
That’s when they realized they could use electricity to charge a phone battery.
And in 1896, in a paper titled “Electrical Conductors,” the Berkeley group showed that by connecting a battery to a wire, they could make a battery that could charge a portable phone.
That meant that they could charge the battery directly, without having to wire it in at a power plant.
The power industry had been experimenting with this for a long time, and in 1900, it was finally adopted.
But the power companies weren’t satisfied with this new way to deliver electricity.
They wanted to make the electricity more like the phone battery that they were already using.
The problem was that there were a lot of problems with the phone batteries.
One of them was that they weren’t good for long periods of time.
Battery batteries were built for long distances and they had to store energy for long time.
But, because the wires were so thin, they were too heavy to carry around.
In fact, the battery itself was designed to be too heavy, because it had to be charged for a few minutes a day to keep it from going bad.
So they decided to make a bigger battery, which could be carried around by a battery or attached to a power line.
The larger the battery, the more weight you could put on it.
And that’s how you got a bigger wire.
That led to a lot more wires.
The first power lines in the US were made of wires that were much thicker than ordinary wire, and that’s when we first realized that the batteries could store more power.
In 1906, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued the Federal Power Act.
The act required that all power companies be required to install “the most efficient means of connecting the transmission system.”
The most efficient meant was to use as many wires as possible to store as much power as possible.
The agency said this was the only way to make sure that all the wires in the system could deliver as much energy as possible, without making it difficult for customers to use the system.
It didn’t take long for the wires to start getting thicker.
They were so thick that they needed to be thicker than a grain of rice.
And then in 1910, the wires started getting thinner.
But they weren’s thinner than a pea.
And by the time the wires reached the size of a pebble, they started to run into some problems.
First of all, they became very susceptible to the cold.
So when the power went out, the batteries wouldn’t be able to charge.
Second, they began to corrode.
The wires became so thin that they became susceptible to corrosion.
And finally, when the wires got really thick, they had no way of connecting them together.
In 1914, a group of engineers at Stanford University decided to look at what they could do about this problem.
They had a bunch of wires of different sizes that they had laid down in different locations.
But one of the wires that they wanted to connect was the largest, so it could go through a power pipe that had to run through a lot.
So that’s where they got the largest wire.
The engineers at the Stanford group started building bigger wires.
And over the next century, the number of power lines that were able to carry power increased dramatically.
Now we have more than 30,000 power lines across the country, and we have the world leading power grid.
In 2000, there were more than 8,500 power lines, and by 2050, there will be nearly 20,000.
