So I'm cruising through my local Home Depot, picking up more salt for the water softener, and on the way to the salt aisle I walk through the light bulb aisle. A purple display catches my eye, which turns out to be the new LED light bulbs from Philips (Ambient LED--no link because Philips' websites are way too confused). Cool!
Oh, they're not dimmable.
Oh, and the BR30 only saves five watts over the comparable compact fluorescent.
Oh, and they're $50 each, versus $12 for the compact fluorescent.
