Harald Bluetooth

“Bluetooth” now commonly refers to the Bluetooth wireless specification design started by Ericsson, Nokia, Intel, Toshiba and IBM, to enable cable-free connections between computers, mobile phones, PDAs, printers, etc. The Bluetooth communications protocol in these devices is named after this king, ostensibly due to his abilities to make diverse factions communicate with each other. According to legend, he gained the nickname “Bluetooth” from his love of blueberries, which stained his teeth. The Bluetooth logo consists of the Nordic runes for his initials, H and B (Long-branch runes version).
