Why is FOB often capitalized when referring to key fobs?

I regularly see people use the uppercase FOB when referring to a key fob, such as a car door lock remote, SecureID, etc. But, why? The only reason I can come up with is that, with the advent of key fobs for computer uses, they were presumed to be advanced enough that they must be some manner of acronym.
