Saying that the pen has become obsolete is like saying that e-mail is just as good as a formal thank-you note written in pen. The saying is “The pen is mightier than the sword,” not “The computer is mightier than the sword.” Ballpoint pens, fountain pens and especially personalized pens add elegance, style and aesthetics to an increasingly high-tech world. Writing notes with pens takes more thought than firing off an e-mail. You still can't avoid some form of physical writing wherever you go, in a restaurant, at a bank, filling out a job application. Plus, if pens were obsolete, high-end manufacturers of writing instruments wouldn't create products like the Cross Matrix Multifunction Digital Writer pens.
