Australia To Ban Old-Style Lightbulbs
The Australian government on Tuesday announced plans to phase out incandescent light bulbs and replace them with more energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs across the country.

This is great news. Hopefully this, and Wal-Mart's new commitment to CF bulbs will lead to similar action here in the US. I converted us to all CF awhile ago and have looked forward to the death of the old bulbs for even longer. There's no reason to use 100 year old technology. Internal combustion engines, you're next! :)
