** Since [=PharmaKom=] is only established as a drug company and isn't understood to be in the business of cybernetic implant procedures (let alone, implicitly illegal ones that require Johnny's implant to be disguised as a prosthesis for treating dyslexia), how would the AI have known established as [=PharmaKom=] property kept on their own computer network) have been able to find out where had actually gone to get this procedure done and track down his childhood memories in order to move them to a [=PharmaKom=] computer databank?

** If the bad guys went through all that trouble and unleashed the virus on an unsuspecting global populace, why wouldn't they have marketed the cure to deliberately shore up business for themselves, anyway? Why did [=PharmaKom=] still hide the cure from their ranking executives, like Takahashi, so they couldn't protect themselves and their own families from the plague they deliberately unleashed on the rest of the world?

* Then why wouldn't anyone getting the data to Johnny explicitly promise him this, instead of just handing him unnecessary large sums of cash?

cash to Johnny's Swiss bank account?



* If the Artificial Intelligence orchestrated all of this and is said to still consult with [=PharmaKom's=] executive board in her virtual computer form, how come she couldn't have covered up the theft itself and prevented the corporation from sending Yakuza death squads after Johnny?
* Why couldn't the corporate defectors that the AI presumably helped steal the data tell Johnny that he was purposefully hired by them so they can give Johnny exactly what he seeks, if he moves their data to Newark and not have to bother paying him with any cash (which they could have presumably used to afford even greater personal security)?

* Johnny actually did inherit a ton of cash from his mom, and also makes hundreds of housands of dollars per run. This is how he got his current implant and memory doubler, and why Spider notes that his cyberware is really upscale. This is also how Johnny can afford room service, $10000-per-night hookers, and hotels like the Imperial in Tokyo. However, the procedure that he needs to get his memories back will cost billions of dollars.

** If it was engineered as such, why would the [=PharmaKom=] corporation make it fatal so it would actively kill off their potential drug customers?

** Ralfi explicitly mentions the fee for removing Johnny's implant is $1.5 million, after inflating from $800K, well short of over a billion dollars.
** This also wouldn't explain why Johnny would have had his implant installed and wound up in this line of work, if he were already living comfortably on a large inheritance beforehand and would have already had more than enough money for the $1.5 million removal fee in Chiba City.

** Which wouldn't explain how the memories would selectively remain in Johnny's head while everything else in the implant is broadcast around the world by the [=LoTeks=].

[[WMG: There is junk data in the research data - the memories Johnny gave up]]
His mother uploaded her brain into the mainframe. Johnny gave up his memories in order to work as a data courier, with his boss keeping the originals. Anna stole a copy of the data and mixed it with the part of her own memories and the research data. That way, when Johnny completed the job his memories were returned, freeing him of his job even when he didn't get the surgery to remove the silicone performed.
