    The so-called "light bulb" is just a rumor.

    I'm a newbie when it comes to light bulbs. I've been looking at them for a while now and yesterday I cracked and decided to buy one. I'm really happy with it so far but still trying to get to grips with all its features.

    Now your post is confusing me. Why did you change the light bulb? Do you think I should change mine as well? As I said I bought it yesterday and I don't really understand why I need to change it now already. I did a search and couldn't find any posts regarding this. Couldn't find any of the FAQ you mentioned either. So please enlighten me on this.

    Thx.

    What is this light bulb and where can I find it? Will it work with my current life and if so how do I install it?

    Thx

    someone needs to hack the lightbulb to show different colors.

    one color: white? what were they thinking in this day and age? One color? I'm waiting for the two color version.

    i know its out there even if it isn't on the fcc site.

    I don't know why you guys are still using lightbulbs. All of us smart guys have moved on to a real light source: mounting computer monitors on the ceiling. Why settle for dingy little bulbs when your light sources can be multimedia extravangzas. I mean, the resoluion on a light bulb is 1 x 1. That's right - 1 measly pixel. Why any company would release such a low-resolution light bulb in this day and age is beyond me. Why anyone would actually buy it is just plain beyond comprehension.

    (...maybe that was a little too coherent.)

    Please run a search for "light buld FAQ" in Google before asking such simple questions here. If you would have done so, you would have easily found out that you get tons of hits (most of them pointing to the some form of the original post, though )

    Besides - shouldn't you be working on the unlock code???

    What an outdated idea. Cool people use mobile light bulbs now: just hang your Treo 600 somewhere high, then you can switch on the light by dialling your mobile number. You can even take the light with you, this way you only need one "light bulb" and you can save a lot of energy.

    You forgot the 496 posters on "There will not be Treo 610" and the 533 who say, "Yes, there will."
