From what I've read, Cree is widely considered to make the best LEDs on the market right now. I wish it were easier to find LED bulbs in the 3500k color range. Despite its similarity to incandescent bulbs, I'm not a fan of the overly-yellow 2700k bulbs and the 5000k bulbs are a little much, too. I have a bunch of CFLs in the 3500k range throughout my house and I think they do a better job lighting a more modern house without going all the way to the sterile 5000k look.
Blinds and shades are items where the higher-quality stuff is rarely available without going through a designer or dealer (and is often custom-order only). Stuff like Graber is miles ahead of the junk you'll find at Home Depot, but you have to look a little harder to find it. I'll have to see if I can dig up the list of high-end shade manufacturers. It's been a while since I looked into it.

I'm not saying they look better than the same fan with no light at all, but there's a certain practicality that ceiling-mounted lights have over lamps.

I can't believe that article is for real. Some extra special excerpts:

SO has one. I think Motorola did a really good job of building a phone with an excellent user experience as opposed to Samsung who just churns out phones with ever-increasing tech specs that do not necessarily result in more functional phones. I really hope Motorola is successful with it because I would love to see manufacturers stop with the meaningless specs wars and focus on building phones that people actually like using. I would get one for myself, but the...
I'm nowhere near big-timer status or anything like that, but I'd happily pay 10-15% more for guys who were known to do good work and to stand behind it. One bad contractor can totally wipe out a 10-15% cost savings on a project. My dilemma has been that even the highly-rated Angie's List guys can be hit or miss.
