How to understand SPOOLing?

I was confused by the SPOOLing recent days. I found that the origin of SPOOLing was attached to the IBM 1401. According to the introduction, i think the SPOOLing's appearance because of no hard disk or other devices which can connect to mainframe at that moments. am i right or not?
well, we have so many device which can support fast input/output function now, why could SPOOLing remain and even more prosperous?
