Same 2 minutes per ear? Or longer? Does it affect the taste?

I have a super old microwave that cooks really slow so I'm not sure how much time it would be in a newer microwave. I usually cook 2 ears, I think 3 to 4 minutes on high - usually I just check it by poking a kernel. I flip them over half way through. Other than this way I have only tried cooking corn in a pot in water on the stove, not the way you microwave it, so I don't know if the taste is different but I think it tastes great.

I've seen it done the same way on an outside grill. I think they actually soak the ears for a bit though instead of just getting them wet. I'm not sure if I got the idea to try it that way in the microwave from that or more likely I saw someone do it that way in a microwave on some Food Network show and just can't remember. <G>
