Thanks to the phenomenal success of its iPhones, Apple is no longer a lean upstart with unbridled growth potential. Yet given its record of innovation and penchant for disrupting industries, it is also far from being a has-been.This dual identity has left the company’s stock adrift, buffeted by the hopes of fans confident in Apple’s ability to create yet another killer product and those who believe it makes more sense to simply return hoards of capital.

Razer introduces Project Christine at CES 2014

Razer’s most newly introduced hardware comes in the form of Project Christine, dubbed the world’s most modular PC design.

The machine comes in the form of a rack with slots, for easy to plug in modules of Razer designed PC component hardware. The system is designed for you to easily custom build and adapt your machine as you upgrade components.

Currently it isn’t commercially available, though Razer is waiting to see if it garners enough of a response from video game enthusiast’s before making the decision to bring it to market.

But can you share something worthwhile in 18 minutes? Definitively, unequivocally yes. The Gettysburg address made history in a ninth of that time. Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech? Sixteen minutes.
