(CBS/CNN) -  The makers of Thin Mints and Tootsie Rolls want to make sure their names aren't used to market e-cigarettes to kids.  
The Girl Scouts and General Mills are just some of the companies who have sent cease and desist letters to makers of the Nicotine Inhaler.
They want them to stop using their name brands as e-cigarette flavors.
LG Electronics is launching its new G3 smartphone today at events around the world.  The phone's camera could help set it apart from the iPhone and Galaxy.  It will reportedly feature a laser auto focus system, which means quicker focus times and more precision.  
General Motors dealers still seem upbeat, despite lingering concerns about the safety of the company's current lineup and a record number of recalls. A recent survey by reuters found while dealers reported some wariness  from gm owners, the recalls don't appear to be stoking fears. Investors, on the other hand, are less relaxed. GM's stock is down almost 20% this year.
Now is the time to make sure your car is ready for the summer driving season.  Before taking off, give your tires a check for proper inflation and tread wear.   Bad tires can lead to flats and blowouts.  Make sure your child's car seat and booster seat is properly installed.  Children should never be left alone in the car, even if the windows are partially open.  Leaving children in hot cars during the summer months can lead to heatstroke or - in the worst cases, death.  And never drive after drinking.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Drunk Driving fatalities spike around the summer holidays.
