LED lighting is coming on fast and strong.  Prices will go down (they’ve got to!) and the color will continue to improve, but I think what’s out there right now is amazing.  Raleigh’s own Cree is a big player in the game.  Watch this video,  from the Philips  website.  It’s a great way to learn about an LED lightbulb.  It’s a bit technical, but not bad, and at the end you get to build a bulb to see if you were paying attention.  I loved it!
