    Matt

    you can notice in the dock, and in the once grey menu area on safari.

    Oh alright, I think I understand now. Open up System Preferences>Display>choose the Color tab and select the profile that looks best (it probably says something about iBook if thats the machine you're using).

    No problem.

    May this be a lesson to all of us not to click on anything that contains words like "mimic" and "PC", together anyway.

    PCs use a different color profile than Macs; like you noticed, there's more of a blue tint. The option is there so you can see what your photos, or in my case web sites, will look like on a PC screen.
