Why your clock radio is all abuzz about iPhones

The folks at O'Reilly Media aren't immune, so they set out to discover just what is it about iPhones that makes them such bad RF citizens. The good news is that the iPhones aren't the only bad Apples in the cell phone basket, the bad news is that there's not much you can do about the problem.

We're really in an interesting time, radio speaking, in that there hasn't been a time before, certainly in the last five years, maybe the last ten, when there was such an inordinate number of relatively high-powered personal transmitters just wandering loose in the world.
