Flipping the switch
I have followed the rise fluorescent bulbs for a while. We have several in the house now and will probably add more (and sooner if it were not for an ill-advised X-10 based home animation project – darn house wiring). IKEA actually has been selling these for years (with some of the drawbacks of the older technology). This fast company article highlights how Wal-Mart is going to break the fluorescent bulb market wide open with it’s aggressive pricing and marketing of this new technology. Cheap lighting and environmental benefits for the masses.
