Find out what happens when Pete takes on Big Bluetooth.
Today in "Tech Pete Takes for Granted," we're covering the basics of Bluetooth (specifically Bluetooth classic) - what it is, where it came from, who manages it, how it works and more! Highlights include Pete's pronunciation of the name Harald "Bluetooth" Blaatand Gormsson, King of Denmark.
If you have questions for Pete, he's getting a crown today (not the King Gormsson kind), but leave 'em in the comments and he will respond when the drugs wear off, or maybe before they do, which could be more entertaining!
Well, thanks for that. If it's any consolation, I've had people mispronounce my name for years, like "Doker" or "Dotler"... all manner of things. But Harald, wherever you are, I'm sorry I got your name wrong.
I think 2745 vs 2744 mix up was one of the common errors. Where we often confuse byte count with byte order. You look it sends 2725 bytes with the count starting and 0 and ending at 2744.
Le sigh. That's not very reassuring...
Dane here. I decided to watch this video just to hear the pronounciation of his name, and I was not disappointed. That was pretty far off. xD But then again, you use the typical English spelling with double a, whereas it's actually å, a single a with a circle above it.
You will hear no grievance from me about the history though but that's because it has never interested me, so I don't actually know it. And really, I just figured I'd be a little informative here, for good measure, the mispronounciation is really no skin off my back.
