Throwback Thursday: News Recap October 2, 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:

  • Do you know how your refrigerator works? Eat Drink Better explained. LINK
  • Is it cheaper to go the laundrymat or to buy a washer and dryer? According to The Simple Dollar, that depends...LINK
  • I'm sure most of you are aware that Whirlpool makes appliances under the Whirlpool, Maytag and Kitchenaid brands. Did you know about these other brands they market under? LINK

  • Appliance columnist Joe Gagnon shared his views on Electrolux acquiring GE. LINK
We found an article that might be of interest to those of you who love all thing appliances:

  • Hiding from the police? They'll find you if you try to hide in the oven. LINK
