In the final installment in our series on Hedy Lamarr, Sovereign Syre and Ela Darling discuss Hedy Lamarr's most famous invention, frequency hopping, and how the US government f*cked her in the deal to the tune of 30 billion dollars. How is it possible that the inventor that brought us WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth never saw a dime? Because she happened to be a dime herself, of course.
