    2. Bluetooth 2.4ghz
    3. Cordless phone 2.4ghz
    4. RF Cordless Kb/mouse
    5. iBurst Wireless Broadband
    6. FM radio
    7. AM radio
    8. Analog free to air tv
    9. Digital free to air tv
    Do you have anything to add?

    and then there's the CPU - if you take your case sides off or run without shielding your CPU will radiate something according to it's clock speed (2.8 GHz here :D )

    Cell phone. That's it, give me wires for everything else (until we can get gigabit over wireless, I'll stick with my ethernet card and CAT5e/6 thanks ;))

    EM radiation from your electricity meter, power lines, and mobile phone masts.

    wifi going through my groin at the moment...erm.. Intel shouldn't be promoting its Centrino technology coz it will encourage other laptop users to use their laptop on their laps. lol :p
