History of Bluetooth:
A long time ago in a country far, far away, (which was mostly Denmark, with a little bit of Norway added in for flavor,) there lived a Viking king. He was known as Harald Bluetooth, son of Gorm the Old, and he united most of Denmark before his estranged son, Sven Forkbeard, sent him to Valhalla and took over the family business.
A little more than 1000 years later, succumbing to an attack of Scandinavian pride, the giant Swedish telecom manufacturer Ericsson decided to honor old, weird Harald by naming its new wireless networking standard after him. It convinced founding Special Interest Group co-partners Nokia, Toshiba, IBM and Intel that Bluetooth was the right name for the thing and, together, they set off to conquer the air.

When Dino there got useless arms, I got myself this useless bluetooth...
Apparently, I've got weird ear lobes, it's difficult to cling that thing on it. Sheesh! So much for a techie pengwee...
