Barnes & Noble’s done a pretty decent job of keeping a supposed Nook Color hidden from our prying eyes, but an errant accessory may have jumped the gun — the “Nook Color Screen Film Kit,” to be precise, whose product image is pictured immediately above. CNET discovered the protective film hanging out on Barnes & Noble’s website, and quickly grabbed this picture before it could be removed. Even if we’re legitimately looking at the new Nook, of course, this doesn’t tell us much about the seemingly button-less product underneath. How’s this: We’ll go out on a limb and tell you it’s got a color touchscreen.

The Pixel Qi and Tegra 2-packing Notion Ink Adam has long been one of our favorite pieces of perfectly plausible vaporware, but founder Rohan Shravan’s just made a pretty fantastic claim — he says he’s getting a minimum of 15 hours of battery life from his personal tablet and calculates you’ll get up to twenty with the 24Wh, potentially user-replaceable battery nestled in its frame. While those are the figures for the $498 transflective version of the tablet and not the $399 juice-gulping LCD, they’re still so stellar that they could easily make or break the Adam’s sales depending on their veracity. Oh Rohan, please don’t let us down.

Move over, Flash and PDF — there’s a new contender in the race for the “browser plug-in exploit” title belt! According to the numbers Microsoft has crunched, Java appears to have locked up 2010’s number one spot.
You don’t often see Java’s name splashed across the headlines, however, which is why the Microsoft report shocked me a bit. From personal experience on my workbench, I also know that Java is one of the last things the average user bothers to update. Outdated software is a big risk, especially when that software is being exploited as actively as Java is. Just last week, for example, Oracle pushed a massive bundle of 29 patches — which I’ll wager have been ignored by the vast Java-using public. My guess is that the bad guys have figured this out, too.
The good news: unlike Flash, which is needed by most of your favorite video and casual gaming sites, the Java plug-in is required far less often — so you probably won’t notice a big difference if you disable or uninstall it.

Google Chrome’s (and Chromium’s) about:flags
page is becoming quite the playground for intrepid feature testers. In a recent Chromium snapshot build, another handy new feature has appeared: user-specified DNS servers.
Being able to specify custom servers right in the browser might not be a big deal on other operating systems — where you can already do that in your network settings. On Chrome OS, however, it could provide an easy way for parents to lock their child’s netbook in to the OpenDNS FamilyShield to block inappropriate content (for example).
I’m sure there are other applications for this as well — testing, for example. Want to run GoogleDNS in Canary against your ISP’s servers in Chromium to see how they perform side-by-side? Go for it!
…Or maybe your favorite site won’t load, or an outdated copy of a page you’re working on keeps loading when you refresh (I’m looking at you, MTS). If it’s your DNS servers at fault, you could quickly pop a new server into Chrome, reload, and off you go.
Sure, you could achieve the same result using a proxy server, but why bother if the functionality is built right into your browser?
