Did you know that the name of Bluetooth technology derives from the name of a Danish King ?

We all know what a Bluetooth is, but do you know where did the technology got it’s name from?

I came across an article of  Jim Kardach where he explains all about it.

Why am I sharing this article, today?

Well, yesterday, 8th of september we celebrated Literacy day, and I felt that I could highlight with this article the importance of reading. 

What is the connection?

The name Bluetooth was borrowed from the 10th century, second King of Denmark, King Harald Bluetooth; who was famous for uniting Scandinavia just as the Eriksson company aimed to unite the computers and other devices wirelessly. The inspiration was a history book and without it the Bluetooth technology might have been called Biz-RF, Low Power-RF or other confusing names.

Read! Get inspired!
