Web clients - cookies.

Flash clients - either you mean flash on the web, in which case cookies (Flash 
can get to JavaScript, and JavaScript can get to cookies,) or you mean flash 
as an application, in which case you can do whatever you want.

Client on a friend's computer - is still a client!  What, would something like 
Psi magically discover there is no connected hard disk, just because the 
"wrong" person is using it?  I think not.

Phone clients - J2ME has storage facilities on even many older phones.

In short, the vast majority of clients *do* have some way to store state.
