"The whole idea of paper I find unnecessary these days, you just log on and the information is there,” Cr Dobie said.

"Having news at your fingertips, you don't have to deal with the mess of paper and the recycling.”

Cr Dobie is a digital subscriber to the Daily News on her existing tablet and gets a newsletter twice a day with the top headlines.

She also visits the homepage to read each article in full.

The online world allows keeping a record of top stories over the years.

"You can search back by day, by week, by month,” she said.

Cr Dobie said classes were available through Southern Downs libraries for people to learn to be more tech-savvy, but many older residents already enjoyed keeping up to date with the latest gadgets.
