    The return of Harald Bluetooth

    Strange to have old runes used on every modern electronic device:

    Bluetooth Symbol Origin and Meanings

    From the article:

    The Bluetooth logo is the combination of “H” and “B,” the initials of Harald Bluetooth, written in the ancient letters used by Vikings, which are called “runes.”
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    That's really cool. I remember kinda wondering about that symbol when I first saw it.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Yeah, I remember that was brought up in an episode of QI.
    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    And the name, "Bluetooth," that I figured was just another cutsie tech word with no real meaning.

    Re: The return of Harald Bluetooth

    As I am just messing with Bluetooth for a set of wireless head phones,I had wondered at the symbol.(also wondered at the weird names they give android OS's,like strawberry shortcake or something)

    Like this.

    Android 1.6. Donut.
    Android 2.1. Eclair.
    Android 2.2. Froyo.
    Android 2.3. Gingerbread.
    Android 3.0. Honeycomb.
    Android 4.0. Ice Cream Sandwich.
    Android 4.1. Jelly Bean.
    Android 4.4. KitKat.

    It said named after something sweet,but WHY SWEET?
    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.
    Mark Twain

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    The wizard be in: But be warned if you poke him to much,the standard wand of anal probing +10 may be utilized.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    Trust lost,is trust never regained.
