Electronic cigarettes.

    Will they replace the traditional cigarettes, like DVD players have replaced VCRs? And are they really a safer alternative or is that just marketing? I'm not a smoker, by the way.

    The last that I heard, a couple of months ago, is that they've been banned here until Health Canada can assess the safety of inhaling glycol fumes. I was really looking forward to trying one, because of having COPD and an apparent inability to quit smoking. (Although I think that I'll be able to pack it in, along with drinking, when W moves up north this weekend.)
