It seemed worthy of inclusion to me to give a little extra information to help readers evoke just what happened.
Beer cos I'll happily buy you one.
And the name for Android monitors is ....
"Pokemon". The idea came to me on the train this morning. A bit miffed I didn't think of it while writing the story, actually, but better late etc.
