    I am putting this under iPhone as the recent spat between Apple's CEO and Adobe over flash not being allowed on iPhone caused Steve Jobs to highlight security concerns over flash, not just performance...

    This article on the BBC tech webpages is interesting

    It seems that Adobe are storing our information which others then can take advantage of people to restore deleted cookies and snoop on us all!!!

    Old news. Flash is has long been known to be spyware, along with buggy, slow and a memory hog. Still, many people clamor for it. If it bothers you go here. Then, install ClickToFlash and enjoy the blissful peace of a Flash free internet. Although, sadly, you will no longer be able to shoot dancing monkeys or be the big winner in numerous contests you never entered.
