To be or not to be

Whatever your views, tomorrow's vote is a moment in history. Despite some of the portal views expressed today, history shows a different story, with spikes in activity following other elections. Throughout evolution “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change". Markets change and uncertainty is replaced with looking forward. Ten years ago, laptop computers were the weapon of choice for any situation when we were not required to be chained to a desk, yet these have increasingly been replaced by tablets, which fit in so much better around our pace of life. Smartphones have become larger and more powerful as our thirst for improvement meets the challenges of the design of what it is possible to complete from ones palm. Mobile life is replacing the way we pay for things and bio-metric security is slowly removing the requirement to remember yet another password. But it is those concepts with simple form and function that have survived. When we don't know the answer to a question we turn to a search engine with a name similar to the first sounds of a baby (infinity more memorable than googol; the mathematical term for the number with 100 zeros, from where the name came). Touchscreens are so intuitive, devises no longer come with instructions. Yet QR codes and apps for everything seemed technology for technologies sake, after-all, innovations are there to assist not compete with our own supercomputers. In the same way, technology has changed our homes and whether we harvest our own heat or have WiFi in every room, there is a place for everything. But the simple genius of Georgian architecture has remained timeless. A younger child will generally draw a house with the symmetry of an eighteenth century building, it seems this love of the simple is ingrained in our psyche. The outcome of tomorrow, like all historical events, will need to be played out until the end. In the meantime, in Salisbury at least, the sun is shining with temperatures in the twenties and it is business as usual. Having just opened our doors, we have also launched our Property Management solution, which, having been both landlords and tenants ourselves, is the service we would expect and looks after our clients as well as it does their properties.
