You know that bluetooth on your phone?

That’s named after this guy: 

Harald Bluetooth, King of the Danes, responsible for the Christianization of Denmark, the raising of the Jellinge-stone, and a bunch of other stuff. 

The logo for bluetooth is literally his initials written in runes, squished together.
