Throwback Thursday: News Recap February 13, 2014

If you have been reading the W.L. May Blog but haven't checked us out on FacebookTwitter or Google+, you may not be getting the whole story. We use all of those social media outlets to share news stories that relate to our industry as well as appliance tips we have found from other sources. Here is a recap of some of the top stories we have seen lately. A lot has been happening so without further ado:

We start with some consumer friendly articles we feel would be great for sharing:
  • Consumer Reports shared some mistakes to avoid when buying a refrigerator. LINK
  • The Consumerist talked a little bit about sweater "pills", why they appear and what to do about them.  LINK
  • Angie of Angies list checks into one of the great questions oF our time. To rinse or not to rinse, that is the question. LINK
Next, we look at the manufacturers and how they have been in the news recently:
  • Wall Street Journal reports that Whirlpool hopes to beat the competition...in court. LINK
  • In an attempt to speed up the design process, GE hosted a "hack-a-thon" that involved hackers, startup experts and GE engineers. LINK
We found several articles that might be of interest to those of you who love all thing appliances:
  • The blog "Through The Looking Glass" told us how the modern refrigerator developed. LINK
  • Shelly's World made the most far fetched argument against stainless steel refrigerators that I have ever seen, its not what you might suspect! LINK
  • This is for every one of you who has had to fix a coin op machine after some two-bit crooks got into it. Sometimes the good guys win. LINK
  • The Canadian Olympic Team has unlimited beer in their Olympic House thanks to Molsen and their passport operated beer refrigerator. LINK
Sometimes, the links we post are related to technology, business or happenings on the internet:
  • Microsoft announced a new CEO. LINK
  • Knoxville Biz did a feature on a man who is both a corporate headhunter and a laundromat owner. It talks a bit about his laundry business. LINK
We close with a few fun stories:
  • This columnist may know how to run HIS washing machine, but he isn't getting the dishwasher quite right. LINK
  • We really do have it good these days. This article talks about "wash day" way back when. LINK
  • A refrigerator is a wonderful appliance, but when spouses don't agree about how to use it, it can cause friction. LINK
