DHS Jams Its Own Gears: When Paper I-94s Disappear

"CBP
announced on August 7, 2012 that it will automate the I-94 record from a
paper form to an electronic form.  (This sounds okay, right?)  The
actual process though, has not been clearly communicated to the public. 
In fact, the paper I-94 form (may or may not) still be issued at
various ports of entry while the electronic I-94 record is being
generated.  How a foreign national ultimately notified they have been
issued an electronic I-94 record is still a mystery because that data
may take anywhere between 30 to 45 days to be generated.
