90% price reduction in better bulbs

This will be of no help to those looking to make a change NOW, but things are going to get a lot better soon.

There are 27 metric tons of cash being dumped into LED R&D. Nothing like a global energy crisis to get the wheels of innovation rolling. Prices will drop dramatically and the bulbs will continue to improve.

I don't think there's much doubt that LED's will replace incandescents in the near future. Concerns of "warm" light will surely be addressed as these bulbs make there way into our homes. Patience...
