My Week: Technology

wpid-20150108_211501.jpgHello folks. We are nearly halfway into 2018. Can you believe it? I am too busy to assess the first half of the year. All I can say is time is flying.

Tax Inspection

We had our first meeting with the tax inspectors on a client’s investigation on VAT, Corporation Tax, and income tax.  

Prior to the meeting, I had emailed them the information they had requested. They did not have a chance to review the information.

Most of the questions in the meeting, I have no doubt, they already knew the answers.

The meeting lasted about an hour. They will get back to us with further information requests.

Tax inspections for me are a major set back since they steal my time from far more valuable work. Unfortunately, they go with the territory, I have to get them out of the way ASAP.

Artifical Intelligence

It is surprising how far technology has gone with AI. Please watch this video to see what I mean:

Can you imagine, your AI assistant calling HMRC? HMRC assistant, answering the call? It will HAPPEN.


I treated myself to a new 27″ iMac. It will be delivered by the end of the week. It will be used at home. I will assess over a period, whether, iMacs can be used in the office. If so, Windows PCs will be replaced with iMacs.

The why is simply because Windows is not my choice. I do not like working with it. My experience with Apple products has been positive to date.  I have 12.9 iPad Pro + Apple Pencil, Apple Watch, and the iPhone X. In my opinion, great products.

I tried Samsung products, watch, tablets, and the Note mobile phone.  I was NOT impressed. They lack style and functionality is time-consuming to work out. I also have a massive Samsung TV, a disappointment. I hardly sit down and watch TV now.

And Finally

I am loving the sunshine. I am back on my bike now commuting to the office. At this time of the year, car drivers appear to be a lot more patient and the sun brings out the good in otherwise selfish human beings – yours truly not excluded.

  1. Great post, although I’m samsung all the way. I love how I can flick my photos from my phone onto the tv! Apple products stress me out.

    1. Thanks Nisha. I think IT savvy people like Samung/Android and they get bored with Apple.
