      I just quickly read something about Walmart using

      these bulbs. This is a piece of what it said. I got it

      from MSN money/investing online.

      The giant discount retailer is determined to push

      long-lasting, swirl-shaped light bulbs known as

      compact fluorescent lamps into at least 100 million

      homes.lmart using these bulbs.
