Dial B for Bluetooth
I love gadgets – I think I mentioned that before, but anyway, this gadget is particularly interesting, according to Think Geek:
Dial “B” for Bluetooth
Okay, so apparently this Bluetooth stuff 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. But that’s enough useless trivia for today – let’s move onto something much more important!
We have taken the ever-popular Retro Handset and updated it to connect to your cell phone using Bluetooth technology. That’s right! No more tangled up phone cord. Now people will think you’re really crazy talking into a old-time handset connected to… nothing. Oh, and speaking of nothing, there’s nothing out there quite like this handset because this product is a ThinkGeek original design, only available here. How ’bout them blueberries?
So, this is Retro AND a gadget – it doesn’t get any better than that!
