Flash: Bad For Your Battery?

Apple has removed Flash from the default configuration of the new MacBook Air, and no wonder: adding Flash reduces batter life by two hours if you have the wrong web page open – apparently, even if the offending page is out of sight in the background.

There have been enough posts here about the Apple/Adobe catfight over Flash and its relevance to the world that I wonder if Flash needs its own tag ....

Still, it's clear why Apple would want people to have to opt in to Flash instead of getting it without informed consent.
