Mellow yellow (quite rightly)

While most early adopters of the iPhone 3G have been spending their time trying just to get it activated, an astute few have been wondering why the screen background appears to have a yellow tint, rather than the harsher white of the earlier model. Apple has now confirmed that this is a real design feature and neither a simulation of age-related vision changes nor a variation on their usual rose-colored glasses. Since light yellow backgrounds are periodically recommended as a viewing accommodation for some people with learning disabilities or ADD, we find this perhaps the world’s first positive case of yellow fever.
