You need light to see to eat the pancakes!
And by the way, does anyone know what the current software version is on light bulbs, when an update is coming and what fixes/additional features it will have? And whether it will screw up any working function, like the production of light?

We're seeing the end of life on inc models. And I've lost track of their version number.

We're on V3.0 of CFL--though their days are likely numbered too.

As for LED, we're on version .9. Many suitable uses have already been found tho the home version isn't really GA yet. Very close.

I am the proud owner of two very expensive 3-way CFLs.

Bright, brighter & brightest doesn't exactly describe them.

My neighbor is a dim bulb; his wife told me the protection plan won't replace him.

1 to ask if he can open the bulb and put in a bigger filament and if it burns out will he still be able to use the old one.:lol: or will it still work if he moves it to a new fixture.
