Okay, Okay, I know some might say this isn’t IT news, but then again I say it is. It is the same premise as when monitors and laptop screens and TV’s have been updated to LED back-lit technology. This is a big step in making our homes more efficient and it is the way of the future.

Royal Philips Electronics’ new 75-watt-equivalent LED bulb is now available for sale online.

The 17-watt LED bulb is equal to a 75-watt incandescent but uses 80 percent less electricity and lasts 24 times longer than the average incandescent, according to Philips.

The bulb has a lifespan of 25,000 hours, roughly the equivalent of 17 years of daily four-hour use, and a color temperature of 2,700, which is a warm yellow light similar to that of an incandescent bulb, according to company specs.

It may cost 40$, but you will use less electricity, and it lasts for years! Get with the program. Go and buy some now! Read the full story here.
