Having to upgrade your phone every year or two just because a new model that’s slightly better comes out is such a hassle, and far from cost-effective.

We aren’t given much of a choice since we can’t upgrade them ourselves, as all of the parts of the phone are internally installed underneath a hard external case.

What if phones had block-shaped components that could easily be swapped by users?

That’s the question posed by Dave Hakkens, who is the mind behind Phonebloks, a phone that could change the way we replace our smartphones.

The battery, camera, WiFi and memory of Phonebloks are all block-based, and are shown on the outside of the phone. Because of this, they can be easily swapped.

Play a lot of games? Install more memory. Just want basic features? Install a bigger battery block. The possibilities are endless.

While we’re not sure how feasible the idea is, it does bring up the discussion about reusing and revamping rather than completely replacing our smartphones.

Nicki Minaj Shows How Much She Likes Big Butts In New Video For ‘Anaconda’

The video for Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” just dropped and it is bootylicious, to say the least. There are big butts and a ton of twerking all over the place. The song itself samples heavily from Sir-Mix-A-Lot’s classic “I Like Big Butts,” so the butt stuff makes perfect sense. Not to mention the fact that Nicki […]
