Survey considers most Americans ‘gadget hoarders’
FARGO – Richard Holmes has a Betamax VCR and an RCA video disk player. He bought them each for about $400 in the early 1980s.
“I just couldn’t stop myself from blowing more money,” the Fargo man said.
Both devices became obsolete quickly, and he hasn’t used either in more than 20 years. But Holmes has no intention of getting rid of the devices.
“My children will be inheriting them, and they won’t know what they are,” he said.
