I really despise fluorescent tube lights. They emit a glum, unflattering light, if you can call it “light”, and their inefficiency is frustrating, yet they are used so frequently in public places. This is why I was happy to see the news that Phillips have developed an LED bulb for use in the (horrid) fluorescent tubes. I don’t know why it has taken SO long to develop this bulb when you consider how long such bulbs have been available for other lights, but hopefully this will improve the light quality, and at the same time use 50 percent less energy. Improvements all round!
