History refresh: Bluetooth is named after a 10th century king of Denmark who enjoyed eating blueberries a bit too much, resulting in blue stained teeth. Harold “Bluetooth” Gormson helped to unite Sweden, Norway, and Denmark much like the way Bluetooth helps to unite your wireless gadgets under a single standard. And did we mention that the Bluetooth logo is composed of the rune characters representing his initials – H and B. (Thanks Thinkgeek, I had forgotten that it was meaningful)

Great! Thinkgeek has upgraded the retro handset with bluetooth. Actually I find that the retro handset to be very ergonomical… good for people who has evolved their necks into an extra hand. Now with bluetooth sans phone cord… a winner!
