Google recently revamped Blogger, transforming the lagging product into a full-featured blog platform. With its quick initial setup and point-and-click template switching, Blogger most resembles WordPress, but it sets itself apart with its savvier handling of third-party plug-ins and online videos.
In addition, you can post photos from your camera phone, blog using the mobile client, or send posts to a special e-mail address. The software sports a comprehensive set of controls and features for posts, comments, and feeds, and presents them in a simple interface that clearly explains what each does.
While Blogger will let you host your blog at your own Web site (including subdirectories and subdomains) by FTPing posts to your site, many of the new customizable layouts and modules will not work with external domains. Google says this arrangement may change soon, which would make Blogger a fantastic choice for small businesses wanting to add a new blog to an old site without spending much time customizing it.
On the other hand, WordPress's logging and statistics features put Blogger, which offers neither, to shame. It's especially embarrassing since Google Analytics is one of the best free offerings on the market. Fortunately, Blogger lets you paste Google Analytics code into its CSS, but the fact that it isn't baked in is a big oversight.
Nevertheless, Blogger is a great option for anyone who wants to trick out a blog with third-party ads and applications, or who wants to blog for dollars through Google's AdSense program. If it ever lets you use its design customization on third-party servers, it will be a fantastic way to run a blog on your own site without having to maintain and update blog software.
MyBlaBla: For me, blogger have a lot of potentials to grow widely like wordpress if google allows the users to contribute in it's development or receive some opinion and thinks to do it. But the important part is blogger dare to change!Outside they, many blogger hacks created by the user to enable inordinary blogger do the ordinary things.

The launch of the new Proton Persona has been long-awaited and departing from its usual paranoia and super-secrecy (which even led to getting the police involved when spy pictures of the Gen2 appeared on the Net), many details of the new model were made public well before today – including price indications. This is the right way of marketing and it didn’t take a genius to figure that out because people will find out one way or another before a model hits the market and rather than keep them in the dark so they will hesitate – and many do with Proton – providing advance information about a product – even a single image – can make a difference to their decision. So it’s not surprising that at least 2,200 bookings have already been received as of last night and even more impressive, 350 customers can start driving their Persona today.
Earlier, Proton had hinted that the new model might not be called a ‘Gen2 Sedan’, as most people assumed, even though it is using the same platform and styling. Instead a new name – Persona – has been chosen and when you consider how significant the changes made are to turn the Gen2 into a sedan, it seems justified that the model should get its own name.
'Persona’ is not exactly new to Proton as it was used for the Wiras sold in UK and Australia and in some ways, its adoption for this new model is appropriate. Using Wira was felt to be unsuitable because that model, Proton’s second one, was based on the Mitsubishi Lancer and Proton wants to break away from that era so a new name is necessary even though the Persona can be considered the true WRM (Wira Replacement Model).
