Every Friday I like to bash all my favourite internet finds in one place to discuss (and laugh). This week is no different. First it was brought to my attention that Gangnam Style is 5 years old! And that with 2.8bn views, it is still the most watched YouTube video ever? The man himself, Psy, has just released two catchy AF new videos. And while I adjust to work life sans public holidays, it will soothe you to know what top tech firms pay interns (not really), that The Hulk does fail and that South Korea has got election coverage nailed.
What interns get paid at top tech firms

Introducing Acer’s Selfie Sombrero. This hit London Fashion Week back in 2014 but only popped up in my Twitter feed this week. I’m not sure what is worse – the glittery pink colour or that you get to have a screen hanging from your sombrero? Luckily for me, Acer has moved forward in leaps and bounds. No more sparkly hats – now they’re all about empowering and helping women get their game on.
