Got a TV that's been acting a little erratically recently? Try checking any nearby energy-efficient lightbulbs, as some are reporting that they are causing their TVs to change channel and switch themselves off seemingly at random. Take the case of…

As part of the 100% Design London exhibition, Greenpeace unveiled what it claims to be the world's first dimmable low-energy light bulbs. They commissioned designer Jason Bruges to create an "interactive garden of light", which responded to human movement via…
