You just said it all.

This is why hardcore computer people generally do not understand the
importance of polish and shine. Most of you are quite happy in a world
of grey (beige?) computers, looking at a grey screen, sitting at a
grey desk, eating a grey sandwich in a grey room. Great, very
productive. Most of the public thinks otherwise.

Once the initial engineering gets done, it is all about production
costs, and this is where USB shines.
