Jim Kardach is in the Bluetooth Hall of Fame, his foray into the technology began in the mid-90’s while at Intel he was tasked with bringing to market a new short range PC radio network standard.
At EETimes, Jim writes about some of the behind the scenes details when Intel, Nokia and Ericsson joined forces to develop a single network standard as opposed to their own short range radio technologies. And it sounds like deciding on the name may have been the most challenging aspect!
In the pic above you can clearly see King Harald Blatang (Bluetooth) in this ancient rune stone with one of the earlier versions of a laptop and mobile phone, wishing we would expedite in delivering this wireless technology. 🙂
