Ohanian just embarrassed himself repeating the same line about weakening security over & over again without bothering to explain or reference evidence as to how or why. He seemed to come into the debate assuming everyone understood his stance as fact. He also seems to believe that telling people you're a nerd/technologist/entrepreneur would serve as proof that he is oh so clearly right. Cringworthy. In way over his head.
Dershowitz, the lawyer, rather predictably got distracted by unimportant semantics, which he argued vehemently.
Hayden over-downplayed his hand aver being called out for his initial strategy of hyperbolic scare-tactics. He trusts the protection policies in place, even though they don't technically govern or change the fact that everything's being sucked up.
Greenwald, the only one who came armed with at least a little fact-based information, very easily tore down Dershowitz's "trust our policy's" statement by pointing out Snowden's ability to steal all those documents without leaving a trace. For the most part his points were fine if not old news. Unfortunately he too slipped into hyperbole, slightly undermining his authority, though he was still easily effective at discrediting Hayden.
Nothing new to speak of. I left very disappointed.
It goes to show, gestures, while faster, do have a learning curve (the same problem plaguing Windows 8). Especially when the UI doesn't give any hints.
I find this particular feature change nicely illustrates my views on iOS 7. It provides an upgrade in usability once you're used to it, but a downgrade in the obviousness of its predecessors. iOS is no longer the OS you can hand your (never touched a computer before) grandma and trust she'll be able to figure it all out on her own.
