Feature Creep and Microwaves

No one wants all those buttons on the microwave. We all just want to say COOK NOW!
Here are some good metaphors for how I want a microwave to behave.

You mean like this:

There are microwaves out there with dial timers. Few home builders build them in, since they are considered the lesser, cheaper option.

Feature creep (can be) a sign of a supposedly upper-end product! I mean why else are Light-scribe DVD-burners and fingerprint-readers being thrown into laptops? Because people actually use them?
