The terms on-line and off-line have specific meanings with respect to computer technology and telecommunication. The concepts have however been extended from their computing and telecommunication meanings into the area of human interaction and conversation. However, "offline" can be used when describing purchasing items online. For example: "I bought that shirt offline"
