The events of ''Rising Sun'' can very easily be a prequel to ''Strange Days'', as the Japanese were high-tech in the novel (and film adaptation) to the point where they were able to record a 24-hour video on a mini-disc similar to the SQUID tape. It could be possible that Nakamoto, the company who was interested in buying MicroCom, may have actually been contracted by the U.S. Government to create the SQUID device. It also explains how Lenny, a low-level "drug" dealer so to speak, would know how to correctly say "Konbanwa" to the Japanese businessman instead of "Konnichiwa" at night time, with the Japanese tech/culture slowly being accepted into U.S. culture.

It also serves as a prequel to ''Neuromancer'' as well, as the SQUID device is strangely similar to Stim-Sims from the William Gibson novel. The terms "deck" and "trodes" are used in both ''Strange Days'' and ''Neuromancer'' (and the wireless trodes connect the user to the deck, similar to the dermatrodes used by Case to plug into his Cyberdeck. It's not a far reach to assume that the SQUID could be a precursor to Cyberdecks, as someone could take the tech used for the SQUID and modifying it to be used to access computers instead of memory recording).

It could be possible that Nakamoto, Nakamoto or one of the company who was interested in buying MicroCom, many smaller more advanced tech companies they purchased may have actually been contracted by the U.S. Government to create the SQUID device.

Both novels feature readily available memory recording, which by the era of ''Damage Time'' has developed further into full on memory-ripping (i.e. recording and erasure of memories). Both featuring a decaying USA, although ''Damage Time'' is more decayed, as it is set after the oil has not quite, but almost, entirely run out, and California has seceded from the union.

It may actually just be the mugging it appears to be...

''Brainstorm'' shows the initial development of the SQUID sensorium-recording technology as well as the government's interest in it. Early in ''Strange Days,'' it is mentioned that the technology first appeared as a replacement for the standard concealed recorders used by police.
