How do I prevent radio interference from my new power meter?

Recently the power company installed a new power meter in my home with a radio transmitter, which sends out a signal that meter-readers can pick up outside the house without having to come in and look at it directly. Here's the problem: I use a Tivoli PAL radio as my computer speaker (it's got an AUX jack and it's a great little device). But since the installation, it "chirps" every 30 seconds or so, presumably when the signal from the meter is broadcast. What can I do to stop this or shield my speaker? [more inside]

You're coming through loud and clear, unfortunately.

My boyfriend's across-the-hall neighbor loves to talk on his CB radio at all hours. We don't love hearing it through every speaker in the apartment. What can we do? [more inside]

My piano picks up the the radio

My new Casio digital piano picks up the radio. I think this is a bug not a feature. You can very faintly hear a music station coming out of one of the speakers (which is very distracting). Any ideas on how to fix it?

Can I install aftermarket iPod interfaces into my BMW?

I have a 2003 BMW 325i. There is a sticker on my windshield warning me that aftermarket electronics (and cell phones) may interfere with the car's electronic system. For real? The dealer says they cannot install the factory iPod interface (it's only for 2004 and later). My fiance has a 2006 BMW X3 with the factory-installed iPod interface and I am insanely jealous. DO WANT. [more inside]
