comment Does a Trackball make you more productive?
+1 true, learning curve seems flat for some, but addiction level is often high. Many keep buying only business notebooks with trackpoint (Thinkpad, Dell) if they get used to it. Esp. if you can type very fast, constantly moving hands to mouse/touchpad costs alot time, its like a third leg for turbo programmers :) I do even firefox gestures with my trackpoint. For Mindmapping/LaTeX Coding its really perfect as you often have to hit in between a toolbar button or change edit position.

@Alexandre amazon.com/ThinkPad-USB-Keyboard-with-TrackPoint/dp/B002ONCC6G its expensive yes, but what is the alternative?! ;) I work on a Thinkpad Notebook, so its built in. Also your index finger is more accurate/faster than your thumb for touchpad/trackball, at least to me

comment Does the “30/30 Minute Work Cycle” really work?
+1 in university its pretty common to interrupt a 90min double lecture by 5 min lasting pause. No one can concentrate in one piece for 90 min, but making 30 min pause interrupts the whole learning process, so here im 100% sure its more counterproductive

comment How to keep up with academic publications (papers) as a researcher?
@Rabar you find many guides on "how to read a paper" with google. Here the anwers should imo concentrate on how you filter information and reduce redundancy, big question on its own due to plagiarism. I would recommend a 2nd question for fast fast paper analysing, worst case you get even more, more detailed answers and more rep for a good question ;) we need anyway more questions here

i know only of scirate.com for physics arxiv.org. Actually scientifi community has a recommendation system - peer review - peers will only accept good and new information, so reading the top 5 peer-reviewed journals works. For not peer-reviewed repositories like arxiv scirate.com is indeed nice. But if you can list rating services for other branches besides physics it would be very fine! I did a quick search, didnt found much :(

comment How to keep up with academic publications (papers) as a researcher?
good answer but more on "how to to read and analyse a paper" imho. Deserves a own question and likely gets a healty discussion here and many answers, there will anyway come more science tagged ones... But i thought @Rabarberski wants to know how he can filter out papers useful to him. These steps he should take when he knows a paper is strongly related to his research and was read/rated by many other researchers in the field.
