So Motorola and Google have decided to take the "Phonebloks" idea and roll with it; I've noticed that a lot of people say that it won't work because the software would have to be made to work with all possible hardware combinations and that companies would not take the time to do this.
Just wondering why this can't be done? I mean, computers can do it without any issues (for the most part) People build their own PCs all the time and run Windows, Linux, Ubuntu and other OS's all time.
Why can't this be done with smartphones? Computers can also run any OS and the chance of bricking is very slim compared to a smartphone. You can also dual-boot OS's on a computer but not on a phone...The concept is really cool and I'd love to see this become a thing sometime in the next couple years
Sorry if this isn't a well-developed question/post. Started thinking about it and I'm writing this before I go to bed. Just wanted to get your input and thoughts as why this is?

A smartphone is almost entirely integrated hardware while a PC is almost entirely built from off the shelf parts. It's like asking why it's so easy to get whatever toppings you want on your pizza at a restaurant but super hard to get whatever you want in your soup.
