Your somewhat cynical post displays a total lack of understanding journalism. Yes, in the classroom a keyboard would work, but when interviewing people, you need to make a personal connection that's automatically severed when you're pounding out notes on your keyboard.
Pen and paper -- and hopefully a tablet replacement of those tools -- allow you to maintain eye contact with your subject and relate to them, while jotting down the pertinent details of what they're telling you.
