The After Math: Internet trends, Apple TVs and Samsung's Finnish triumph


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

The launch of the Xbox One may be behind us, but we still have plenty of numbers to crunch. Speaking of ones, this week we saw a record-setting auction for an old Apple 1, a multi-tabbed refresh of our inbox and the release of Mary Meeker's annual Internet Trends Report. Add to that some big names taking the stage at D11, an anti-graffiti drone and a rather bizarre-looking harp, and you have this week's After Math. Join us after the break for the digits.
