In memory of 1905 Einstein followed the method (!) Of Alexander the Great, who faced the question of knot Gordo, cutting with the sword rather than dissolve. Macedonia gained as the domain of Asia Minor, promised by the legend, but with a very short duration. Einstein recise the need for the ether exist, glossed over the fact that the electromagnetic phenomena have local effects, not attributable to the transfer of particles from source to receiver, let alone attributable to an empty space, in itself non-interactive, that is physically irrelevant ... At least until the latest generations of physicists, with questionable internal consistency, they filled with many meanings.
Both are rejected simply because all the considerations made in his memory of 1905, sprinkled with inaccuracies and naivety, perhaps venial, if it refers to the scientific maturity of a century ago. The reason given that the electrodynamic interactions between magnet and conductor no asymmetries incurred in that time, but depend on the relative motion between the two bodies, is somewhat 'simplistic, as emphasizes or not the influence of the guidelines is the magnet and the conductor, or that in general the electromagnetic induction is observable without relative movement of inducer and induced, but only for local variations of electric and magnetic fields.
