I tried now for some time a pure digital way. However, at least for me that 
fails for two many reasons. 
Thus, I'm looking to strike a balance between both ways trying to grep the 
best from both sides.
Please let me add that in my personal opinion a iphone is not really a big 
help. A device without keyboard is a real pain for note-taking. I tried it 
with a keyboard based PDA. But even the simple task 
to move it out of my bag, 
switch it on, 
move to the right buffer (I even used emacs + org-mode natively),
add the note, 
switch it off, 
and put it back in the bag,
was something which prevents me to use the PDA for smaller note taking tasks. 

I guess a keyboard free system which requires you to carefully type letter for 
letter on a silkscreen is even a more worse note-taking stopper.
However, this is only my opinion 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts

Best regards
