No it is not a worthless gimmick?

You are not the target audience for digital zoom. If you know how to PP then digital zoom is a worthless feature. However for the 95% of the camera users that don't PP then digital zoom is wonderful. Is it technically as good as cropping in PP? It doesn't matter. Most of the people who use it have no clue what PP is.

It is really quite simple if there is a feature on your camera that you don't like then don't use the feature. Starting a thread to slam the feature just because you don't understand it is pretty pointless.
