Jacob Goldman

Born: 1921-07-18 - Died: 2011-12-20
Cause of Death:
Heart Failure

Death Summary: Goldman died on December 20, 2011 in Westport Connecticut. The cause was congestive heart failure.

Who was Jacob Goldman : Goldman was a physicist who was Xerox's chief scientist. He founded the company's Palo Alto Research Center, where the modern personal computer was invented.

During the latter years of the 1960s, Xerox was the dominant manufacturer of office copiers. At the time they were looking for new ways to move into new markets when Goldman suggested an open-ended research laboratory. The intent of the laboratory was to research "the architecture of information".

Xerox is often criticized for "fumbling the future", as they did not capitalize enough on the technologies they had pioneered. They essentially set back while Apple, Microsoft and numerous others did just that.

    I like the design of the shoe a lot and the shoe is pretty. I just wish the inside material was sewn better and did not show from the outside when I’m wearing the shoe. I am going to have to find a way to trim the excess material down. Other than that, I like the shoe a lot.

    Excellent. Very fast delivery (less than 2 weeks to Moscow), good quality. A little minus for me: there is no “middle pocket” inside the bag.Goods shipped as soon as possible. Recommend. very soft material and lightweight. And those who are actively engaged in running or cycling, that is inflated legs, these jeans should be taken with some reserve. Pockets
