Welcome to The After Math, where we attempt to summarize this week's tech news through numbers, decimal places and percentages

The After Math Intel's revenue billions, finances from ten years ago and 15 million Android activations a day

Is it unfair to compare the yesteryear Nokia to Google? Possibly. But it was the same year that a certain Engadget regular claimed a best-selling album -- so it wasn't all bad. Toshiba also unveiled a new pin-sharp Ultrabook to stand up to Apple's Retina displays, and NASA continued the search for habitable planets.
