VIDEO: Would You Build Your Own Cell Phone?

In this brief — yet lively — video, our experts discuss the pros and cons of a modular cell phone.

looks like Jeff is Mac lover. His statement doesn't make any sense. Its the PC which allow many upgrade easily without changing or upgrading the Windows OS. Where as Apply makes is soooooo difficult for you to maky any upgrades. Just search for graphic cards for both pc and mac?? You will get millions for PC where as only handful for Mac. This is just an example, the same goes for every part on mac. Seriously ????
And I am not PC fan, just stating what is obvious.
