Blogger Buzz: Announcing Google Weblogs (beta): "Don’t limit yourself to “reverse chronological” publishing. Our advanced Google algorithms put your best content at the top of your blog. Even if your later work goes downhill your previous posts will still shine. ... No more template languages to mess with or sidebars to get right. Our advanced Google algorithms automatically populate your blog’s sidebar with the most relevant possible content." (Etc.)
Sounds like a complete load of tripe, ugly, exploitative, unwanted - whatever happened to "Do no evil?" The beauty of Blogger was the freedom from impositions, and the support for non-template layouts.
