A fridge that sends spam emails, Microsoft paying people to use Windows Phone, and other news

Another week comes to a close and boy has it been hectic! I’ve applied to two jobs, one at Buzfeed and one at (excitingly) Nintendo Magazine. Hopefully all my new experience will have some weighting on decisions!

I also reached 100 articles this week, which is a great milestone to hit, especially in just over a month (that also included Christmas)!

The pick of there stories has to be the one about a fridge that’s spamming people with junk email:
