Richard's love for gadgets was probably triggered by an electric shock at the age of five while poking his finger into power sockets for no reason. Since then he has managed to destroy a few more desktops and phones until he was sent to England to start secondary education.

Follow Richard around in electronic stores and you will witness some intense exchanges between him and the sales reps.
