Okay, back from home with the data of the yellowish-light Glo.

Product No: N613-KBO-P
Serial: 613B2B...

S/N or product n doesn't appear to discriminate.

I am now temporarily in possession of two Gloes, one with blue lighting, the other with yellow. The one difference I noticed on the outside was the layout of the bottom of the device (the printing next to the µUSB socket). See attached pics. The top bottom! device is the one with yellow lighting.

My first Glo was more bluish, its replacement (for a broken light button) is slightly yellowish and I love it. The bottom of my replacement device looks like the bottom device in your photo, Mrs_Often.

Hah weird. Hm.

EDIT: oh! wait! That's correct. I made a mistake in my post. The bottom is the yellow one. So it makes sense again Edited my previous post and squiggled some colours into the picture to prevent any further confusion!

Another difference I've noticed is the box itself: on the back there's specs in multiple languages. On the box of the "yellow" Glo, there are 7 languages, and no Japanese. The "blue" Glo has 8 languages including Japanese.

I found the blue to be very harsh and actually hurting my eyes. Blue is actually also very bad for "night" time/dark time reading as blue light inhibits the secretion of melatonin, a hormone you need for a good night's rest. So I actually requested the yellow for my replacement. It was never acknowledged though so I have no idea if 'they' pulled some strings for me or if it was just dumb luck... I'm choosing to think the former

ATTENTION K-MART Shoppers.. Blue Light SPECIAL!

Spoiler:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kmart
Kmart became known for its "Blue Light Specials." They occurred at surprise moments when a store worker would light up a mobile police light and offer a discount in a specific department of the store. At the height of Kmart's popularity, the phrase "attention Kmart shoppers" also entered into the American pop psyche, appearing in films and other media such as Troop Beverly Hills, Six Days Seven Nights, Rain Man, Beetlejuice, and Dawn of the Dead.

It's a bit hard for me to say why I prefer the blue lighting, I just find it more soothing than the yellow. I don't often use the light on my Glo, normally just as an extra boost when it starts getting dark, I never read in pitch black with it.

Maybe I'm just weird!

From the pics you posted, I'm not sure I'd want a yellow, but it could be different if seeing them in hand.

For what it's worth, mine is BLUE and has the same info as the BOTTOM one in your pics. I suspect that is North American vs European but I could be mistaken (just going on the info on it and the way it's presented).

She wouldn't do that. She tiptoes around the garden wearing clogs.
