I havent really owned anything that depended on 60hz ac for timing in probably 20 years. The article talks about things that flash 12:00 when the power goes off -- they wont be affected by powerline frequency or even to a large extent voltage. So if the article dosent get that right -- it shows the author doesn't really understand what he is talking about

Even the clock in the computer you're using to post here won't be affected.

If anyone is concerned about accurate time, just synchronize your PC clock with the atomic time server.

Here's a free app:

Or configure windows to do it automatically.

Even most of my electric clocks will not be affected by this, as it says in the story. The clock on my coffee maker is the only one I know if that will be affected and I'm not worried about that.

I suspect you're right. They say things that flash 12:00 after an outage may be affected, then they start to list some exceptions, like VCRs. I think the list of exceptions is way longer than their list and most electric clocks won't be affected, just as you said.

Those new lightbulbs have a circuit board in them with capacitors to increase the power for CFL bulbs.

If they mess with the electric as they propose all of those bulbs will either burn out an electrical component, burst into flames, or start smoking and set off your smoke detector.

Then you will have to buy MORE expensive light bulbs since regular lights bulbs will soon be BANNED in the United States.

See why they are planning this? Buy all the regular light bulbs you can right now. They are not effected by the power company playing this game.

Tell me you just made that up to troll -- if not you really don't understand enough about electricity/electronics to venture an opinion -- a little research might be in order -- may I recommend a search engine such as Google or perhaps a compendium such as Wikipedia. Both good references for filling knowledge voids.
