The point is that the use of those terms is intended, and
it illustrates a specific difference: "shiny new" often
refers to products that _claim_ to be advanced or mature,
or better or technically superior, while _not_ possessing
that property; using actual words like "advanced", "mature",
"secure", and the like _assures_ that those properies are
present in a product.

Reasoning: Just because a manufacturer claims his product
is better, or because his product is newer, or because the
product comes in a shiny package does _not_ prove, by any
means, that the product actually _is_ better.

Terminology, my dear Watson. ;-)
