This article in USA Today about people hoarding incandescent bulbs due to their planned obsolescence brings up an interesting debate. I’ve been converted to CFL’s for quite a while now, save for a few particular lamps that require a super-small bulb, so I can’t really say that I’ll miss the old-school design. I’ll admit it, though, I agree with a few of the stockpilers’ grievances — I find it irritating how some of the CFL’s are slow to fully light up. And others expressed concerns of the mercury risk and increased care when disposing. How do you feel about the old tungsten-filament design: are you sad to see it go, or are you green all the way? — Megan B.
