MotoBlur is “the first and only solution to sync contacts, posts, messages, photos and much more – from sources like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail, work and personal e-mail, and LastFM – and automatically deliver it to the home screen.” Hm, this somewhat resembles Palm’s Synergy, integrated into WebOS.
