Questions/concerns re: KitKat 4.4.2 verizon update

Ok, so I just updated my galaxy s3 to KitKat 4.4.2.

1) To Verizon- Why has the battery meter gone WHITE instead of Green-Orange-Red-, etc.? Is there a way to change this? Will it turn ORANGE or RED as the battery decreases?

1A) Was this Verizon's or Samsung's decision?

1B) And more importantly, why was this not mentioned in the Verizon PDF update (http://www.verizonwireless.com/dam/support/pdf/system_update/galaxy_s3-6-19-14.pdf)? I understand you want to promote the additions (most of which is bloatware and things most people do not care about) , but how about giving us a heads up on ALL changes?
1C) And what other changes are there? Is there a full list of ALL changes and not just the ones mentioned briefly in the above PDF?

2) What is the 'N' in my notification area (see screenshot with circled 'N')?

Thank you

The white battery meter is part of the standardization of the Kit Kat OS and was a Google decision.

The N-looking icon indicates you have Near Field Communication enabled.

thank you!

It's nice that they (Google, Verizon, Samsung, etc.) are transparent with their info on the updates.

Cheers again!

Have they also removed the oh-so very useful "clear All" for the notifications?

Not real happy with the update, with the battery white, I can't see it with a light colored background.  Is there any way to have it show a different color?  The green was much better.
