TextWrangler v. pencil

“The pencil has been consigned to the dustbin of history”: ouch. That’s from the release notes for TextWrangler 4.5. I know: it’s an icon, as seen here, not the pencil. But still, ouch.

I like pencils. I like TextWrangler too.

Why all this false dichotomy for tech products? Like e-readers for instance—we're told that they'll replace books, in a fashion that suggests books need replacing. I suppose it's part of the hyping process, but I don't see why or how the pencil is (or need be) supplanted by a word processor.
