Whilst there are many people out there who are computer and technology savvy there are many others who are not. Frustrated with the complex technology, a new laptop has been created to give those suffering the help they need.

Going by the name of Alex, and based on Linux, the laptop comes with simplified e-mail, web browsing, image editing and office software. 

Andy Hudson, one of the founders at The Broadband Computer Company, stated that the idea behind the technology was to give users a “simple and enjoyable” experience.

At £39.95 a month, users will have access to telephone support, software updates and broadband access, as well as anti-virus software and 10GB of storage space.

Question is, will the new technology create a new group of citizen journalists, and will it change the media industry as we know it?
