    So if my understanding is correct, adding blur to my kin3tx rom'd bionic will only added, for lack of a better word, "sychronization" with social networking and my phone. I don't really care to have my facebook contacts on my phone. Is there anything worth adding blur for?

    On the flip side, if I completely remove blur, what will I be missing? Would this remove any apps?

    And finally, should I get better battery life without the blur stuff?

    Blur is essentially the UI and apps Motorola includes with their phones. Things like the social widgets, the default home screen/launcher, and the "style" of the text messaging and dialer apps are MotoBlur (may a dev correct me if I'm wrong, I know I'm leaving a lot out). I believe AOSP/stock Android alternatives to Blur apps/widgets save battery a bit more. If you don't really use Facebook/Twitter, you won't be missing much. It's more of a stylistic preference.
