I was at Sam’s Club last week and saw a product that was new to me, three-way CFL bulbs. While I’m not a huge fan of CFLs, they are getting better, and they certainly suck a lot less power than filament lamps. So I bought a two-pack to try. GE brand if memory serves. Back at home I discovered one large problem. The bulbs are quite a bit larger than the filament bulbs they are meant to replace and consequently will not fit into the harp on the lamp. Not even close. Score one for the design monkeys. The bulbs are going back on my next trip to Sam’s.
