New LED lightbulbs shine light in all directions Answered
GE is going to be releasing a new LED lightbulb early next year that shines light in all directions, like a normal bulb, instead of one direction like they do now. The bulb will use 9 watts and shine as much light as a 40-watt incandescent. It will also last for 17 years.
The drawback is the cost, which will be $40-$50, but it does provide an efficient lighting option for those who don't like the light from CFLs.
No word about the blades on the side, however.
