I seem to be turning into the User Interface Police. I am sure that, back in 1982 when they wrote the user manual for my “Generation II” microwave, pushing nine buttons just to set the clock made perfect sense. The UI Police will let these folks get off with a warning—it was written in 1982, after all.
