Bluetooth Trivia

Today the term ‘Bluetooth’ is used to describe the wireless transportation of electronic data between computers, mobile phones etc. It is named after 10th-century Harald Bluetooth, who was known for his unification of previously warring tribes from Denmark and Norway (including the then-Danish territory of Skåne in Sweden, which is where Bluetooth technology was developed by Swedish company Ericsson). Bluetooth was likewise intended to unify different technologies. The Bluetooth logo merges the Nordic rune symbols H and B.
