But you can do that with almost any statement that is false and turn it into a statement that is true.

"in some people's estimations" anthropogenic global warming is a hoax.

"in some people's estimations" Obama is a Muslim.

"in some people's estimations" Trump is a great president.

OTOH, Nokia believed Symbian would be on top forever.

He did qualify it as "in some people's estimations", as opposed to saying that
as a general accepted truth, which we'd have disagreed on. We can't disagree
that some people think that C++ is bloated and unwieldy, I know several people
who think that.
