I know this as "Pebkac" - Problem exists between keyboard and chair.
...also known as the eye-dee-ten-tee problem (ID10T) or the "layer 8 issue" (the logical extension to the 7 layer OSI model being the user).
In IT terms, one can talk of an app "automagically" populating something rather than trying to explain the algorithm behind the real time lookup and insertion. However, many's the time when a techie will try to explain something to a non-techie, but will use so much jargon that the explanation is worse than the original concept. In that case, the techie could be accused of "simplicating".
