Google Docs and Google Mail
E-mail and surfing the internet are useful topics for starting to learn about computers. Googlemail
is free, the add-ons to Google are interesting and you will have plenty of storage space for all your e-mails.
Google Docs is a free-to-use Word Processor. If you have recently purchased a laptop you may
have found that it is "Internet-ready" meaning you will now have access to the World Wide Web, Media, and e-mailing and
perhaps that's all you need initially, but what happens when you want to write a letter or create a poster for your Club
or hobby? That's when Google comes into your life - if you sign up for Googlemail you can access
its free, easy-to-use word processor.
