Chisel to Tablet briefings

We know that journalists love hanging on to the craft’s trademark vocabulary, as if proper (and frequent) usage signified a level of accomplishment within the industry (phrases such as “ink-stained wretch,” “on deadline” and “eleventh-hour decision”).

But even the journalism business evolves. Which leads us to ask:

At one point will these sort of things (copied below from ABC’s “The Note”) stop being referred to as “pen and pad” briefings and start being called Blackberry briefings? Or PC Tablet talks? Palm Pilot presentations?

Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO) will hold a pen and pad briefing at 11:30 am ET in the Senate Press Gallery to discuss newly-introduced charitable giving legislation.
