Philips -- yes quiet, understated, Royal Philips Electronics N.V. -- just introduced a diamond encrusted Ambilight television here in Las Vegas. The set is slathered in some 2,200 diamonds (225 carats) to celebrate their one-millionth Ambilight to roll off the assembly line. It's a one of a kind item and not for sale. To hell with your "Sense and Simplicity" corporate slogon Philips... it's time to party. Now someone pass the herring, we've got some pickling to do!
