Throwback Thursday: News Recap July 24, 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:
  • Here is a fun little blog post with some neat pictures of old laundry equipment. Some interesting stuff in the article comments as well. LINK
Next, we look at appliance manufacturers who have been in the news recently:
  • Some interesting pie-in-the-sky ideas for laundry tools emerged from the Electrolux design competition. LINK
  • Whirlpool made a big move into Italy with the purchase of Italian manufacturer Indesit. LINK
We found several articles that might be of interest to those of you who love all thing appliances:
  • I have seen a lot of interesting appliance modifications over the years, but I never thought of this one... LINK
  • This guy doesn't like dishwashers. From the sound of things, he may have been using one for years that was in need of cleaning and servicing. LINK
  • A photographer takes art photos of appliances in action, and finds Scary Creatures hiding in everyday appliances. LINK
Sometimes, the links we post are related to technology, business or happenings on the internet:
  • A lot of companies feel threatened by Amazon. Maybe they shouldn't here's why. The article also offers a few tips to stay ahead of the internet giant. LINK
  • How closely to you pay attention to your online listings? This story shows why you should be paying close attention. LINK
We close with a story that is just for fun:
  • Embarrassed by the state of her refrigerator, this journalist chalks it up to advanced physics. LINK
  • This story came across my newsfeed as a video of a blind 96 year old man emptying a dishwasher. When I read the article that came with the video, it put a tear in my eye and a lump in my throat. You have been warned. LINK
If we have missed any important appliance news, please share with us in the comments section.
