I cannot find a complete list, but it has been endorsed by the BSA trade group. You can see a list of its members on WP . Besides Microsoft and Apple, it also includes Adobe, Intel, IBM, Oracle, AVG, McAfee and Symantec (and others).
Measuring a result of several variables, and claiming to measure only one without proper control tests. You know, science.
The article's only measurements are of measure of 'economic output' and workers effort. These are of course a result of not just productivity provided by automation, but the distribution of this benefit across the peoples being measured. This is easily accounted for if one factors in the increase in elitist centralization of power and economic prowess that offsets the advances in productivity due to automation. A more complete scientific analysis would include such factors to tell a more complete picture.
Good luck with this, no seriously, good luck. Our technological capability moves forward whether we want it, even fight it, or not. It can be slowed somewhat (the electric car being one example, stem cell research another) but it will happen and we will need laws and frameworks to ensure we deal with this change appropriately sooner rather than later.
This is the equivalent of hiding our heads in the sand.
Unfortunately, it couldn't come at a worse time - a time when even the most "democratic" countries on Earth are pushing for their people to have fewer rights, more censorship, more surveillance, more torture, more secret assassinations and so on.
Sure, there are a lot of subtle things which have been improved in later Angular versions.
First of all, you don't need $scope anymore in controllers, you can still use it for functions like $watch, but you don't need to inject it in just to add properties to your controller, you can just use `this.foo = 'bar';`
You also have the controllerAs syntax which I don't think is present in earlier Angular versions, which provides a shorthand for your controller, and bindToController for directives, which allows you to bind attribute values directly to the directives controller without extra syntax.
If I remember other things I will update this comment.
