* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: The attempt at DoingInTheWizard by having aliens being behind everything ends up [[VoodooShark raising more questions then it answers]]:
** How do they control the parts that aren't electronic?
** Why does their "Alien Ray" affect trucks, but not cars?
** Why would they care if the machines get gas? They could have easily just jumped to another vehicle or some machine that didn't require it.
** How do the aliens [[AliensSpeakingEnglish know Morse Code and what an "asshole" is]]?



* PlugNPlayTechnology: Kind of a weird partial example. There's no actual interfacing of differing technologies per se, but the weird alien radiation which animates the Earth's gadgets does endow those gadgets with some unexpected abilities -- such as the ability to see/sense humans, or to move independently even with no built-in means of locomotion. In the short story, at least, the "alien ray" was supernatural.
