"Bluetooth is a networking standard invented in 1994 by L.M. Ericsson of Sweden. It was named after Harald Blaatand "Bluetooth" II, who was the king of Denmark from 940-981 A.D. The basic idea of Bluetooth is that devices that have hardware that supports the standard are able to form ad hoc networks when brought into close proximity (usually 10 feet or less) of each other. Bluetooth has struggled for years as a "solution for which there is no problem" - however, Bluetooth does a great job of connecting the cellphone on your belt with the little earpiece and microphone hanging from your ear, all without wires."
