  Siemens (unit) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The siemens (symbol: S) is the SI derived unit of electric conductance.
The term siemens, as it is an SI unit, is used universally in science and primarily in electrical applications, while mho is still used primarily in electronic applications.
As for all SI units whose names are derived from the proper name of a person, the first letter of its symbol is uppercase (S).

 Siemens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Siemens (unit), an SI derived unit of electrical conductance
Hermann von Siemens (1885-1986), nephew of Werner von Siemens
Ernst von Siemens (1903-1990), nephew of Werner von Siemens
en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Siemens   (222 words)

The conductance of a conductor in siemens is the reciprocal of its resistance in ohms; the siemens was formerly known as the mho or reciprocal ohm.
The advantages of the Siemens unit were that its magnitude was convenient for telegraph engineers and that a high precision standard was fairly easily constructed in the laboratory.
The siemens unit was one of two units of resistance that competed for acceptance (the other being the B.A. unit of resistance) until the definition of the ohm at the First International Electrical Congress (Paris, 1881), after which the siemens’ unit withered.

 Siemens denies reports of dowry to handset buyer - Computer Business Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Siemens AG has claimed that a report suggesting it will offer a 500m euro ($652.9m) "dowry" to any company prepared to take over its mobile handset division belongs "in the realm of fantasy".

The handset unit is a tremendous drain on even a huge conglomerate such as Siemens, and in its first quarter to March 31, it made an operating loss if 143m euros ($185.9m) on sales 21.2% lower at 1.17bn euros ($1.5bn).
