    Magic material?

    My wife brought home some GE "Reveal" light bulbs from the store the other day. They are supposed to be less yellow and give you more of a daylight look, and indeed they do a great job of showing bright colors more naturally. The package says they're coated on the inside with Neodymium, the same material JBL uses in some of it's magnets. Imagine, this stuff sounds good, AND looks good! Maybe they'll start putting it in tennis racquets and golf clubs too!

    I've been using the Reveal bulbs for some time...indeed colors look better with them. Far as I can tell, 40W is the lowest wattage available in the line. I'm waiting for the technology to be utilized in the mini (PAR 16) halogen floods as I have many of these in recessed cans in my ceilings, for accent lighting on pictures, and of course my living room system!

    The only remaining incandescent lights in this house are in the oven and refrigerator.

    New 2005 California energy standards require all permanent fixtures (including recessed cans, presumably,) to be "high efficacy" (read "fluorescent") in new construction:
