For those of you out there who like to be distracted from television by your television, Philips is here for you. The company is upgrading its Ambilight line of TVs, which "enhance" your viewing experience by throwing light around the screen.
While the previous models merely created a nice ambient glow behind the edges of the TV, the new Ambilights, known as "Aurea," really go over the top, sending light out from all along the edges of the screen. Call me crazy, but doesn't this seem like it would detract from your TV viewing experience? I mean, I buy a TV so I can watch shows on it, not watch the TV itself. But hey, maybe it really makes shows like The Hills more enjoyable. Something's got to.
