Parts of the tech world convinced themselves that yesterday - the day of iOS7's unveiling - was one of the most important days since, well, ever. But were punters as blown away as pundits?
1. Phil Libin, Evernote CEO
"I think iOS 7 is the biggest day in technology ever.
"There’s never been another day like this in the history of the universe where hundreds of millions of people will see a big change to something that they’re used to"
Meh... I dunno how I feel about iOS7... It's weird and shiny and i don't think I like it... *sad ears*— Doctor Mew (Ensign) (@TimeCatGalifrey) September 19, 2013
2. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple
"The biggest change to iOS since the iPhone.”
My son just downloaded iOS7 on my phone. I'm seeing crazy things and feel like I'm on marijuana right now! Don't do it!— STOP WEED SMOKING!! (@ConcernedMom420) September 19, 2013
