The Red Stapler: WayForward Technologies became the name of a real company that makes video games. And indeed, it is named after its founder, Voldi Way.
Technology Marches On: Modern readers probably won't understand the significance of Gordon Way having a car phone and tape deck in his Mercedes. Or know what an "Apple Macintosh" is, or why it's a big deal that Richard McDuff has six of them in his apartment. There's even a reference to a "Mac II"! In fact, to show how technologically savvy McDuff is, Adams describes how the character records his musical compositions "in sequencer files on the computers rather than on tape". And on it goes. All of these references seemed really modern and cool in 1987 when the novel was published but are rather quaint now.
Bad Export for You: Inverted. Americans who didnt catch it on TV originally needed to stream it from BBC America's website, which required one to be subscribed to the channel on a Pay TV provider in order to stream the show. Other countries get to stream the series as a Netflix Original. Both seasons would eventually be made available on Hulu in the U.S., although, unlike Netflix, Hulu charges extra to eliminate commercial breaks.
