Marissa Mayer has this to say on the simple yet intuitive user interface of Google (and these words apply to the iPod as well).

Google has the functionality of a really complicated Swiss Army knife, but the home page is our way of approaching it closed.

A lot of our competitors are like a Swiss Army knife open—and that can be intimidating and occasionally harmful.
