New system makes things just so simple.

AMONG those who have trialled Alex, is Margaret Spoor, a 58-year-old cleaner from Newcastle.

Mrs Spoor, who lives in Benwell with her husband John, 61, was a housewife before starting as a cleaner two years ago. She says: "I'd never been on a computer before in my life before they asked me to use Alex, but I found very easy to set up and use by following the two-page guide that comes with it.

"Being able to use the internet for the first time was wonderful. I'm a big fan of 50s music that you can't find anymore, but on Alex I could get hold of it and listen to it. I also used Alex to delve into my family history, I managed to find out about the history of Benwell, where I live, and heard all the latest news on Newcastle United.

"For people like me Alex could really change their lives. You can find out important information on everything from health to news and sport, save money on your bills by paying online, and keep in touch with relatives and friends around the world."
