    Just being nosy, what was your very first online purchase (not counting subscriptions)?

    my very first online purchased was a disk for tradewars 2002 software to install in the preinternet days. purchased it though another bbs.

    very first internet purchase was through Prodogy and it was a Kodak digital camera from Sears.

    My first online/internet purchase was a Sony Mavica FD-91 digital camera back in 2000ish. It took floppy discs lol
    Now, almost all of my shopping, including groceries, is done online.

    I remember the camera because sears tried to charge me twice :) I remember tradewars because I used to get up at midnight when the game resets just to play it on other bbs's :) surprised I still remember since this was the late 80's early 90's.

    I remember when the internet didn't allow purchases or advertising and people got mad if you made a web page that wasn't about something technical.

    As far as first purchase I don't recall what it was but probably an iTunes song or a video game or book
