Instapaper let's me organize my articles and even provides a dictionary. The latest version is a little buggy, but I have no doubt they will fix that and get it working as well as ever."

      "Coming up with topics for research papers can be tough. There's a lot of information out there, but sorting through it is a chore. Ted Talks are very interesting and engaging, and while they don't always provide a lot of facts to back up arguments, they can at least help you start your brainstorming session while giving you a positive frame of mind."
