Denmark's first Christian king lent his name to....

...Bluetooth! As in, the Bluetooth wireless communication protocol.

Harald Bluetooth united Denmark and Norway, much the same way Bluetooth was designed to unite computers with cell phones. The Bluetooth logo is based on the runes for H and B.

This article talks about him in detail although it's not certain how much of it is accurate.

I wonder how long it will be before someone makes a Schlock Icon of him holding a cell phone.... ::)
