I completely, utterly and totally disagree with this statement.

If there's one thing we've learned from this thread, it's
that MOST of the people who buy gear don't actually use
most of its capabilities and only buy it because it's
perceived as cool.

And we learned that if it wasn't for these people, gear would
cost twice what it does.

Therefore, it behooves a manufacturer to spend the extra
$$$ to make it bright and shiny and to appeal to the 
weak minded...
