Casa Verde: A CFL That Looks (and Lights) Like an Incandescent

I've been pushing you to try CFLs for a long time, but I know that some of you are hesitant to do so given their look, as well as some conceptions about their light quality.

Their familiar, round shape should satisfy the anti-spiral crowd, and the 10,000-hour life of the bulb and its Energy Star compliance will help assure you that you're still living eco, even if the bulb doesn't look like your standard CFL.
