    Sounds cool. How about not only have the bloks customized not by their purpose but also have a skin on them. Or some bloks have a synthetic cushion so there wont be a need for a case.

    Why is the person who thought of this not a billionaire, and why do I not own this.

    That is honestly a fantastic idea. This is the kind of innovation we need; not newer phones every few weeks, but phones that are actually upgradeable. And the whole "bloks" thing makes it completely user-friendly, even if someone has zero knowledge about hardware.

    Yes. This is how everything should work. It should be upgradeable. Even gamming consoles should.

    I think this will puch out the shitty iPhone and all thirsting other products. They should also give multible operative systems on the phone.

    That won't happen. Phones, consoles, TVs, etc. aren't designed to be upgrade-able because it doesn't make the company as much money.

    iPhones aren't bad, they're just over-priced. There's nothing wrong with the hardware, and the OS is fine.

    But if Apple joined in on this they would have the A4 chip on the upgrade list. Well maybe not. The architecture of the chip might be to complex for android. Just like the ps3 was hard to code for because of the chip set.

    Though complications will arise, I feel it will move our technology age forward one more year. It needs to be done.
