I take photos in low light, and I'd like to have the illuminated AF points back. Blinking black AF points are worthless if you can't see them.

They'll work, the N designation is just changes in safety circuitry to comply with Japanese regulations. I suspect even the charger is the same in this case.
Nikon has been trying everything they can to get their train back on the tracks. Their stock value is in the dumps, and sales are dropping even faster than other camera makers.
Sales on the P&S front are dropping faster. I haven't read everything yet, but it looks as though Nikon's ILC sales are still in growth, including their MILCs. They grew a ton last year, and are talking about continued growth to the point where they own 45% of the market for ILC cameras by 2016.
Even if I want the article they are selling, and even if the price is the lowest, I will never order anything from a pop-up ad.
But clearly I am in a minority as these ad companies would not invest in such technology unless they got back a good return. So some people (probably many people) are using these pop up type ads to order stuff.
The problem I have is that with a "traditional" pop up ad, the person has to deliberately click on the ad. This generates a report back to the advertisement company and they can, in turn, report that their ads generated so much interest because a number of people were interested enough in the product to click on the ad.
Hence the term click-revenue.
Since I have no interest in any pop-up type ad, I never click on them.
But these mouse-over ads are a way for the advertisement companies to report higher interest in the ads by reporting mouse-overs as interest in the ad. Unfortunately, a mouse-over does not always indicate interest.
But as a customer of a website, I don't really care. As long as product manufacturers can be conned into paying to support websites that I can access for free, I am happy.
I think that the product manufactuers might have a problem with the advertisement companies, but advertisement companies are in the business of manipulation and lies.
Someone has to pay for my access to these websites. I am not miss-representing anything so morally I am in the clear. But if some ad company can scam a product manufacturer/seller into paying so I don't have to pay, more power to them.
At the end of the day, I am still getting something of value for free so I really can't complain.
I am generally opposed to the whole shift towards video content. I hate how many news articles are available as video only, I can process information so much faster as text, I don't want to spend 3-4 minutes to learn what I could read through in less than one.
I agree video ads are particularly obnoxious, especially if you are like me and open 4 or 5 tabs at once, and they all start spewing the same video ad, slightly out of sync.
