Livin' green aka EU Light-Bulb Ban!

Not an original Idea, it is a mere remake of the original photo found on www.strobist.com at: www.flickr.com/photos/davidhobby/176516763/.

The light bulb goes digital!

Companies for years have toyed with light-emitting diodes, which use the same technology as computer chips. Now LEDs are having their day in the sun. (http://brainstormtech.blogs.fortune.cnn.com/2010/01/26/the-light-bulb-goes-digital/)
