The pressure on academics is indeed an issue. They have to teach, guide PhD's, research and publish (without mentioning controlling internal affairs).

On a side note. Has anyone found a good alternative for Mendeley? I heard http://bohr.launchrock.com/ is working on sth cool.

Have you considered Papers? http://papersapp.com/

Have you looked at http://www.zotero.org ? it covers most of the same ground as Mendeley, browser integration is quite good and the standalone app is as good or better than Mendeley
