They'll be putting space invaders, pong and cameras on 'em next, you mark my words!

And I still haven't got my flying car. What the Hell are all those boffins playing at?

Oh so this. I'm so disappointed by this. It's as if sci-fi is made up, or worse deliberately lying to me, admit.

They're called 'helicopters'. Still not a good idea to have millions of them flitting about during rush hour, though.

Owned this phone for several years and used the alarm clock function almost every day - I have only this minute noticed that the little clock icon is actually a clock telling the real time, with a  moving second hand and everything.

I use a piece of paper with the time written on it.

A really obvious one - re-reading Helter Skelter in JD Case Files 34, the keypad code Dredd gives to Kenzie (p.56) is "...two. six. two. seven. seven" - which is of course the cover date of the very first prog (26/2/77).

Is it eight o' clock?

Mine too. Amazed. However the fancy big digital clock app I downloaded doesn't do the same. It's sat permanently at 12:00. So I guess those developers also missed it.

It shows the correct time.  Twice a day...

Nice!  Not obvious to me at all.  I must have been the only person who quite liked Helter Skelter, and I really hated Garth's earlier Dredd run.

Nice catch! No, I liked Helter Skelter too - probably helped by the fact that I was so new to the prog (less than a year)!. It was my first epic, if we're not counting mini-epic Sector House, so I suppose I didn't have any past glories to compare it to.

Apart from the 'next week' box at the end (you can just about see him through the hail of lawmaster bullets).

Yes it is, Bluebottle.  Have this cardboard gorilla and a photograph of some liquorice.
