Why is it that short proper nouns are so often written in all-caps?


I see this all the time. Examples: FOX News, TREK bikes, MAC computers, etc. Do people think these short words are initialisms?

    Your examples are all business trademarks.

    Corporations will develop a "branding" style, and use it. The general public tends to pick it up by imitation.
