The Twitterverse, like usual, had a lot to say about the iOS 5 announcement. There was grumbling from app developers that Apple had taken their best ideas, swipes from Android fans, and, of course, adulation from Apple lovers.
wired: Jobs comes out to "I Feel Good" and a standing ovation.
mustardhamsters: Long tense pause in the music, everyone straightens up and watches for action. Next song starts. We're already being trolled.

MacworldUK: Jason Snell - Multi-touch is a vital part of the future of the Mac
scottopia: 250 new features in Lion. Looks like a move to a more iPad-like experience.

noahkravitz: Apple takes the stuff other companies have already done and makes it way prettier and often simpler to grasp. That = $$$

Percival: Lots of great new features in iOS5 but I feel like I need to hug a few app devs now and tell them "it's going to be OK" :/
dcurtis: Apple just pissed off: Dropbox, Sparrow, Instapaper, Readability, Remember the Milk, Facebook, RIM, & the carriers. Well done.
tedlandau: Of course, before photos can be moved to iCloud, Apple will review them to check for nudity, porn, etc.
balanon: Steve Jobs is Oprah Winfrey for men.
