From the excellent Reading Jim Williams blog.

After seeing this, I can't believe we're still using magnetic core transformers. I realize they're good for high-current, low-frequency applications. But this is so much better for LCD backlights, I can't believe it hasn't come to utterly dominate the marketplace.

This is probably how the people that invented fuel injection way back in the 1920's felt. "Why isn't everyone using this??" :P
