    lol, this is really funny since about 2 months ago Steve Jobs said that Flash was responsible for more problems in the computer world then anything else. Steve Jobs never had any intentions of using Flash, this is no secret.

    OP, I'm trying to get someone to fix your title.

    Why is my droid so sticky...

    I'm not sure I even care about flash anymore, I say bring on html5 and lets see how that works. Being a Linux user I don't have much good to say about flash, or Adobe for that matter.

    flash sucks!!! it crashed on my firefox all the times. From what I'm reading, HTML5 is much better, faster, and it's opened source. I say bring on HTML5.

    Say what you want, but flash is a standard these days. You may not like it, but in order to view a lot of sites at their full potential you need it...you can't expect everyone just to jump off the flash boat...

    Indeed, choice rocks, probably why many of back the Droid because of its keyboard even though we don't use it that much. I also agree with what the other guy said about Flash being a standard. If Apple doesn't like Flash then tough luck for them for the time being. Flash is utilized by the everyday basement dweller, all the way up to multi-billion dollar industries; it's not going anywhere anytime soon. So buckle up and and embrace the Flash, love the Flash, cradle the Flash in your arms and call it one of your own. ;)

    Just like Firewire is better than USB but what input device is king. Shame though that firewire didn't make it.
