Viking Bluetooth

Boys unearth the treasure of the Viking king Harald Bluetooth on the German island of Rügen.
Archeologists think it had been lost due to a poor connection.

Bluetooth’s lasting legacy is found today in smartphones and laptops – the wireless Bluetooth technology is named after him, and the symbol is composed of the two runes spelling out his initials HB.

:D Fricking viking runes are on our puters because the guy who designed the protocol was reading a historical viking novel (“The Long Ships”) at the time.

I hope one day Bluetooth is going to get replaced by a higher bandwidth protocol named Forkbeard. Partly because that’s the name of Bluetooth’s son, but also because it’s so much fun to say.
