7 minute frosting/boiled frosting different methods?

I've been looking at some recipes for 7minute frosting. martha stewart's calls for a simple syrup to be made with a candy thermometer. Alton brown's just calls for the sugar and water to be beaten with the eggs over a double boiler. Does it matter which way I do it? It seems that Alton Brown's is more convenient since it doesn't involve a candy thermometer.
