Do People Even Use Filofaxes Anymore?

I saw a huge Filofax display in a shop recently and those questions have not left my mind since. In an age when personal planning is done on Google Calendar, Blackberries, mobile phones, in Entourage and Outlook and myriad other places which at least promise some connectivity, what is the attraction of time planning in a Filofax? Moleskine has seized the cool factor for scribbling notes and even the “information” content in some Filofaxes (subway maps, city guides and the like) is now more easily available elsewhere.

Yet, to judge by their instore display at least, some people are still buying and using Filofaxes. I remain confused as to why.
