    You know how most electronics, when you turn them on, a little red light comes on? Well the last 2 pieces of equipment I've bought (a little 6 track audio mixer, and some speakers) the light is blue when you turn them on. And they are different brands. Weird. :c

    Totally agree! I had to put a little piece of tape over the light on the mixer because it is so annoying.

    It's the default "high tech" color now. Hopefully, it's a fad that will die out soon.

    Are you a shut-in, with lots of time to notice these things?

    Haha, lol, no. Seriously, I've never had anything that the "on" indicator light is blue, and the 2 most recent things I've bought has this. Maybe it's a "trend". :dontknow:

    For some reason those cars with blue headlights piss me off. No rational reason for this.

    on all Android devices Blue means it's on. When you plug the device into the AC if the battery isn't full the light goes red until the battery is 100% and then it turns blue.

    I have tested this theory with my Droid X and find it to be pure conjecture. No light is on when it's on. When I press the little button to light up the time, there is no blue indicator. When I plugged it into AC with an 80% charge, no red light came on or changed to red. The battery indicator light is green and doesn't change color.

    That's because it's just not right. Headlights are not supposed to be blue. :burn:
