Together - we can upgrade the universe

Not to bite the hand that feeds this blog, but I am bemused by part of the blurb for BLOGGER's spiel about upgrading all blogs hereon now that Blogger has been assimilated into Google or somesuch:

"... I am overjoyed to announce that today we have o’ficially [sic] graduated the new version of Blogger from “in beta” to “.” Why is this significant? Allow me to explain via analogy:

Old Blogger = Battlestar Galactica with Lorne Greene

New Blogger = Battlestar Galactica with Edward James Olmos..."

So, uh... Old Blogger had laser beams, state-of-the-art (well, for 1978) computer technology, wriston communicatorons, invisibility cloaks, and even time-travel capability... whereas New Blogger has common-or-garden bullets, telephone handsets with cords, coffee mugs, ashtrays, and greaseboard battle maps?

Not completely convinced that the technological trajectory of BSG 1978-2007 - whatever its improvements in numerous other spheres - is one that Blogger wants to emulate.

Just saying, is all.
