Most people are trying to be somewhat energy efficient...some more than others. I do wonder though how companies expect us to remain faithful in our efforts when they charge prices like this. What say they go back to the drawing board and either start over from scratch, or fire the guy that put a zero after the six on the price tag of these bulbs.

How much would you pay for an amazing, state-of-the-art light bulb? Shoppers will be asking themselves that very question at Home Depot and other outlets starting Sunday — Earth Day — when the bulb that won a $10 million government contest goes on sale.

The bulb is the most energy-efficient yet, lasts about 20 years and is supposed to give off a pleasing, natural-looking light. But what separates it from the pack most is the price tag: $60.
