hi shapiros, maybe you did not realize that "e-cigarette" is a trademarked term ? I just had electronic cigarette undeleted after a discussion with the people who deleted it, i did not realize that you were not aware of the situation. yes i think we should merge the information to the page for electronic cigarette. although "e-cig" and "e-cigarette" are widely used in place of electronic cigarette, i think it would be prudent to have them direct to the page for electronic cigarette as they are listed as trademarks by Cixi e-cig and only became popular after that started selling their product using those terms. an explanation of this and a question as to whether these trademarks have become "genericized" can be given on this page also. or else "e-cigarette" could be left with an explanation of its usage and a link to electronic cigarette K08 (talk) 00:07, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

I've been looking for evidence that Stephane Vlachos invented the ecigarette, and so far can't find anything other than claims on blogs.
