Yeah, download the ColorPearl application. I use the blue because it tones it down a little. I even went so far as to remove the track ball assembly and place a small piece of black tape on the white led so the colors wouldn't get washed out by the white led. It's all in this thread:

After about a week the oils from your fingers will have dulled the trackball a little bit.

Def agree, blue is the most soothing color for the eyes. Thats why the displays in cars are now turning blue from the trad green.
