so the USP for these cheap (and low capacity) USB sticks is... "they have racing stripes".

Their justification for buying is therefore - "these have racing stripes. race cars have racing stripes. race cars are cool, therefore our usb sticks are cool".

If only they hadn't used cheapass plastic for the casing, it might have looked somewhere near sleek and nice.
