Lights Out on Incandescent Bulb Production at Toshiba

Toshiba ended production of mass-market incandescent light bulbs on 3/17/10, putting to a close a 120-year manufacturing history of the products. The company, which is one of Japan's largest makers of lighting products, had planned to halt production next year but brought up the date by a year. It will now focus on more energy efficient products including LED lights, which draw a fraction of the power of incandescent bulbs.
