    Motorola has unveiled Project Ara, an open-source initiative for modular smartphones with the goal to "do for hardware what the Android platform has done for software." The company plans to create an ecosystem that can support third-party hardware development for individual phone components — in other words, you could upgrade your phone's processor, display, and more by shopping at different vendors.

    Sounds pretty good. I get tired of buying a brand new phone only for the next model to come out a few months after yet I only see tiny improvements from the old one. Hopefully with something like this an upgrade will be much cheaper :)
