Design Simplicity, or Why The Button Fetish?

Jeff Attwood echoes exactly my feelings on system control, as explifed by microwaves:

I wonder if older microwaves weren't a better, simpler design, with their single giant analog knob.

Who needs so much control from a microwave that you need a degree in programming to control one? Surely Power * Duration approx is absolutely fine. Seems like a control fetish gone mad...
