What's intriguing about all of these references (and I'm sure I've forgotten
some) is this if indeed they are/were part of Lynch/Frost's mindset when
concocting all of this, we will very likely NOT see it upfront and direct
within the framework of the program, since mentioning trade names and such
could be construed as advertising time for the companies whose trade names are
implied here.  Perhaps this is what is meant when it is said that the mystery
will not be solved, but we (the audience) will be able to figure ouot who the
killer is.  It's an interesting device, providing clues to the audience that
the characters cannot make use of for "real world" practicality reasons.

Look for significance where there's none intended, and you will surely find it.
