Who said Flash websites will need to be re-written?

Steve Jobs did in this blog post entitle ‘thoughs on Flash’. But if you watch the video below (thanks to this blog post by Lee Brimelow) you see that what Steve Jobs is just completely false. Here is what he said:

“Flash was designed for PCs using mice, not for touch screens using fingers. For example, many Flash websites rely on “rollovers”, which pop up menus or other elements when the mouse arrow hovers over a specific spot.”

This video below clearly explains and demonstrates how rollovers and mouse events are handled by touch deviced in Flash.
