Hi,
It's been awhile since my last visit, and my email address for logging in has changed so I can't reset my password (which I've forgotten). Can I merge my old account with my new one?

6000LM is extremely bright

Yes. Yes it is. Whereas the "TV" version are (I believe) all plastic... the one I bought has fin-work made of aluminum.

My outdoor LED motion lights are 2000lm and are very bright outside.  They would be way too bright for an indoor fixture.

I agree. As far as I am concerned.... for normal use... this thing is too bright. BUT... for wife approval (she asked for it) it works perfectly. You're correct it is just a normal "screw into a standard A19 style bulb base". The wife's sewing machine is in a semi-finished basement area and it replaced a bare (8 watt LED).

But there are... I am sure... many places where the cork-screw CFL were failures.... and 8-10 watt LED's weren't much better. A shop or work/hobby area comes to mind.

Also... I have an old double (2 each 250 watt) halogen portable work-light, I've used occasionally (for drywall and paint work). One of these lights could take it's place... but NOT use the same storage space.

I just thought this might be the biggest change in lighting I've seen in some time... and thought I'd share.

My outdoor LED motion lights are 2000lm and are very bright outside.  They would be way too bright for an indoor fixture.  Then again, Costco has some ceiling panel lights that are around 4000lm and appear to be about 2-3x more light than is needed.  The one you linked appears to be similar to the ones you screw into a standard A19 style bulb base.  A 60W incandescent bulb produces around 800lm so you are basically replacing a 60W with a 450W bulb to get a reasonable comparison.  I replaced a pair of 100W with 200W in my garage and it was initially shocking how bright it was!

From the specifications you gave.
6000LM is extremely bright and 6000K is on the bright white color temperature side of color temperatures normally seen in LED bulbs.

No.... bright is an understatement thing is blindingly bright.

I was watching TV last night and a commercial came on for Triburst (I think)... an as-seen-on-TV type product. [Then] My wife said "I could use one of those when I am sewing". So.... I went searching on-line and Amazon sent me (what I think is) and up-graded version of the same light. At 6000K, 6000LM it is bright. Almost too bright for normal use. But I am not a fan of diming lights (and I don't even know if the one I got dims). But if you have a use for a REALLY bright indoor light. These things could be useful... I think.

..... early teviews of the ear buds weren't  favorable enough for me to try.

Yes. First year products... (almost) anything can make me hesitate. I've waited for these buds. Now..... I will wait for the implants... that will take me to the next step of Borg-ism.

I started watching the series Next last week. Very interesting what direction Alexa could go.

It's almost a certainty that eventually an AI created AI (as in Next) will have more than a significant effect [and/or control] over all modern populations. Those effects will NOT all be positive.

Of course... with that said (posted).... the very same thing can and more-or-less was said and written about every step forward in human progression. That fear-of-the-dark... innate in EVERY human child is never extracted from the mind, body, soul or DNA. Medical progress seen in the early 19th century first spurred warnings to the world about Artificial Life Forms when English author Mary Shelley in 1818 penned her novel about.... Frankenstein. Or was it the Golem stories (Clay creatures in medieval Jewish folklore) that warned us all 1st?

But we are humans. Despite all the warnings and fears... we go outside in the dark. We've explored the world, and made huge technological advances. We've venture into space. We now create intelligence greater than our own. It's in our very DNA. If our progressive nature is in fact our future self-destruction.... it can NOT be avoided.

P.S. I've been watching "Next" myself.

I never could get use to things in/on or covering my ears, as well early teviews of the ear buds weren't  favorable enough for me to try. I do have Alexa on my watch howerver currently this is only sending me reminders and notifications.

Everywhere I go... I have my phone with me. And now.... Just like the Master Chief traveled with Cortana (in the video game Halo). I've ordered a pair of Alexa Buds (ear pieces) and now Alexa will be able to travel with me. On bike rides, jogging, at the gym, while driving or shopping. Although... my travel risk levels are closer to the movie "her" than the video game Halo. I am confident I'll develop NO emotional attachment to my AI.

Now.... just waiting for the hologram (female image)... and of course the flying car.   

Now would be a very good time to leave!
