Throwback Thursday: News Recap April 17, 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:
  • The blogger at Young House Love was pleasantly surprised to find that her dishwasher was sold with reversible door panels, and she was able to update her appliances look for free (other than about ten minutes of time). LINK
  • Huffington Post had a list of 9 kitchen items that probably don't get enough attention in the cleaning department. LINK
  • Contra Costa Times discussed ways to make your appliances more energy efficient. LINK
  • Nola.com has solved the mystery of the missing sock...with some help from an appliance servicer! LINK
  • Mom4Real talked about how she organized her refrigerator. There are a few ideas in this article I have not seen before. LINK
Next, we look at the manufacturers and how they have been in the news recently:
  • Electrolux debuted a fancy new R&D facility, hired staff, and is contributing to an engineering school. LINK
  • Whirlpool announced its renewed commitment to working with Habitat For Humanity. LINK
We found several articles that might be of interest to those of you who love all thing appliances:
  • Enid News celebrated the writers long lived refrigerator. LINK
  • Apartment Therapy shared a clever design for squeezing a washing machine into a small kitchen. LINK
Sometimes, the links we post are related to technology, business or happenings on the internet:
  • It would be incomplete of us not to mention the "heartbleed bug" that is is challenging programmers and getting a lot of attention in the news. CNN explains things simply: LINK  
  • The Register in the UK offered this far more technical explanation of the "heartbleed bug". LINK
We close with a story we are particularly proud of:
  • W.L. May Company is proud of our continuing support of  Swipe4Kids and their work of bringing arts and sports education to kids. LINK
