Paper vs. Digital: an iPhone user's perspective

I've stated many times why I prefer paper planners: they're archival, I like the tactile and visual aspects, I'm analog in general, etc.  I won't even start on the path to digital, because I have no interest in it. I don't care if it's more efficient or convenient, I like paper and that's it.

My sister has used and loved paper planners for years and has written several guest posts here on Plannerisms including ones about her love affair with her Moleskine weekly notebook, then how she dumped it for the super-efficient Quo Vadis Trinote. It seemed like a love affair that would last forever.

Then she got an iPhone.

But she's still on the fence as to whether or not to use it for her planning and note-taking needs. Apps are great and all, but they can't replicate the feel of pen on paper, and flipping through pages.

Will she convert to digital entirely?  Will she use some sort of paper-digital combo?

Read her excellent post about it here: Organization - Digital vs. Tangible on her awesome blog 100 Days of Venting.

I know I'll be following this saga closely!!!
