At 56, Steve Jobs rocked our world, and his death was felt from Silicon Valley to Bahrain. Here are a few of our posts commemorating his life.

On a brighter note, this week we learned that Facebook is as Big as the Internet of 2004. The cool infographic on that post had us all reminiscing on our own early internet experiences and ReadWriteWeb took some time this week to look back on the internet of 1995. Were you on the internet in 1995?

Overshadowed this week was the launch of the iPhone 4S. This latest iteration from Apple includes iCloud, an 8 megapixel camera, will work on CDMA and GSM networks and more. Below is a comprehensive wrap-up of our coverage.
