Munich Reverses Course, May Ditch Linux For Microsoft
My employer recently did the same as yours. I am wondering - do you have chat history in Lync?
An instant messenger without chat history is way further away from perfect than just far. It always has been, not just in 2014.

Unintended Consequences For Traffic Safety Feature
Here in Bulgaria we have many (in fact, most) traffic lights with countdown timers for cars. Most don't even have timers for pedestrians. And these timers started to appear about ten years ago.
I haven't heard of increased car crashes at intersections. My own observations also don't point in this direction. People are (or at least I am) using these timers as a more precise yellow light. And drivers in Bulgaria don't have to twist their necks in order to see them. Maybe this is the problem?
Disclaimer: Bulgaria has a very high fatality rate on intercity roads. These are not related to traffic lights, though.
NYC Loses Appeal To Ban Large Sugary Drinks
> The ones who are doing something that clearly puts a larger burden on the system pay for it.
On the contrary, they lessen the burden on medical care systems. The smokers need medical care for a significantly less time on average, even if it is more intense for a while. Not that I am advocating smoking for anyone.

How the Internet Is Taking Away America's Religion
I was born atheist and just stayed that way. Thanks mostly to my grandparents who didn't try to indoctrinate their children in any religion (although one of my grand-grandparents had been an actual priest).
Well, I guess I have to thank a bit the religion-condemning totalitarian regime me and my parents grew up under.
TL;DR: No, the Internet did not influence me at all in this regard.
