I can appreciate the aesthetic to a point.

Portable electronics are so slick, compact, and utilitarian that I get that they thought that design made them feel more "real" as opposed to anestheticly functional. So maybe in some test where people just looked at a bunch of different designs, picked them up, and held them in their hand that was the one that got the best immediate gut reaction from their target demographic. But then, after you actually owned it for about 5 minutes you'd inevitably hit the point of "Okay, so where am I supposed to stick this thing?"
