Jargon watch: upgradia

Upgradia is a loose label that trendwatching.com puts around a range of products that operate as modules such as Google’s Chromecast and Sony’s dedicated camera module for smartphones. They cite a number of consumer motivations for it including wanting to replicate the constant beta feel of software with regular upgrades in hardware, getting more for less money and consumption.
