FORTUNE -- If you don't have 23 minutes to watch the video of Mary Meeker's state-of-the-Internet report at AllThingsD 2013 -- or if you just want a chance to study more closely slides that she showed for an average of 14 seconds each -- here are the 10 that pertained to Apple (AAPL).

Reflections at age 72 from the man who gave Apple the graphical user interface.
