One of the only practical uses for the internet is the buying and selling of certain items.  Ebay is good for certain things, mostly things that are mass produced in china or garge sale items.  Things to avoid buying on Ebay: cars, electronics, anything heavy, basketball sneakers (unless you are a certified sneaker expert), land…  Ebay is a perfect place for someone to steal your money and/or your identity.  If you want to sell something then you have to sell at least ten other things first otherwise no one will trust you.
