Wow - some poeple get nasty about this topic, ey?

Firstly, I'm sure neither I, nor anyone else here, implied that it was our "duty" to inform anyone (well, at least I didn't). I actually thought that, in some cases, it might be considered a courtesy to let someone know the difference about a product that they may not be aware of. If I ever DID "butt in" or have the nerve to tell someone the difference, I would do it in a light-hearted way, not a condescending way.

Actually no. I just make the coughing, hacking noise while I walk past them waving the smoke away.

Sorry if you were offended by the comment. It must have just been my ignorance popping in and stereotyping of old people not understanding, or wanting to understand, new technology.
