Energy Saving Light Bulbs: The bane of radio hobbiests?

Spotted this one when researching the latest fad - energy saving light bulbs:

Energy Saving Bulb 'cracked like a gun' - in the Otago Daily Times.

The guy interviewed is a guy i've seen in various places thanks to the Amateur Radio community.

I hafta say, why didn't people consider the RFI impacts of this technology sooner???

People are oblivious I suppose...

With the baseline noise level in the RF world going up and up - thanks to more and more electronic appliances and more and more wireless technologies - at some stage you really do have to sit up and take notice about this sorta thing.
