    I'm a Neanderthal when it comes to this kind of stuff. I just don't have an analytic thought process. But it could be an unconscious factor as I've never picked up a slot head that I didn't say, "no...

    And a lot of times they use some very creative descriptions to convince you that they are attractive. My wife is a technical writer. She can make you think that a hex head bolt looks good.

    It is all about being a little different so that they don't get lost in the crowd. It is marketing. They have to compete in some way to stay front and center.
