There may still be plenty of competition among potential successors to the incandescent light bulb, but there's little question that the traditional light bulb is on the way out -- a fact now further backed up by GE's closing of the last major factory making the bulbs in the US. GE had apparently c...

We never really had a problem with traditional CFL design, but it's always nice to have options when you're looking for new ways to decorate. London-based outfit Plumen has bent the usual coil shape into a more abstract pattern that we're sure will fit perfectly in our quirkily stark / offbeat loft...

There's not much to say about the Motionbulb that can't be extrapolated from the above image and the product's name: it's a CFL bulb with a built-in motion detector capable of, uh ... detecting motion from up to 25 feet. Walk into a room, light goes on; leave the room, light goes off. 'Nuff said. T...

We don't cover many Voom HD stations in our daily HDTV listings, but we thought it would be worth telling Dish Network subscribers that you'll be getting the first of many CFL games tonight.

Football, futbol or Canadian football, it's better in high definition, so it's certainly nice to see our neighbors to the north will be getting more of it next year. Along with every CFL game being televised, TSN (Canadian ESPN) will be showing at least 17 games in HD next year. CBC has yet to make...
