All things technical

It's not until you start to run your own business, that it becomes apparent that no matter what skills and experience you may have in the services that your business is providing, there's no getting away from the fact that you're going to have to become a bit of a 'techie' whether you like it or not!

In just this week, I've had to migrate (as they say) from my old Windows 8.1 phone, which worked well but wasn't really being supported by Microsoft, to a bright and shiny iPhone. This means that in my working world, life suddenly became a whole lot more complicated than before, because Windows is Microsoft and iPhones are Apple. I've grappled with iCloud (Apple) and OneDrive (Microsoft), loaded up various office systems and chatted with Siri, and after all that I feel that I have come through triumphantly!

The two largest companies on the planet did indeed hold my hand all the way through the agonising processes in order to get them to talk to each other, and I have learnt so much along the way, but the end result is that I've been able to send a Tweet and post a Facebook status using pictures from an Apple device whilst using a Microsoft Windows PC - bravo to those real techies who work hard to ensure that those of us running a small business can carry on seamlessly in this tehnical world that we live in today.
