+ - Toshiba ends incandescent bulb production-> 1

angry tapir writes "Toshiba has ended production of mass-market incandescent light bulbs, putting to a close a 120-year manufacturing history of the products. The company, which is one of Japan's largest makers of lighting products, had planned to halt production next year but brought up the date by a year. It will now focus on more energy efficient products including LED (light-emitting diode) lights, which contain a handful of white LEDs and draw a fraction of the power of incandescent bulbs."

Toshiba ends incandescent bulb production

  • It looks like progress. I've seen some of those Philips LED bulbs recently at a trade show here in Hawaii, and they look ready for prime-time. The price tags for LEDs is a bit of an up front deterrent to adoption, though.

You will have a head crash on your private pack.
