Rodney McPhail of the Dept. of Biological Science, Purdue University has reviewed a product in his blog: Pod Podagogy.
The product is iPresent for Mac only. This manages creation of slideshows and managing them on the iPod for slideshow presentations. PPT, Keynote and PDFs are supported.
THIS IS NOT ENHANCED PODCASTS as my first impression was. But anyways, good to learn about a new professor, a new product and a new blog at the same time.
There are other cool software at http://www.zapptek.com/index.html for making your iPod into a PDA, document tex-to-speech etc.

So this interface acts like a high quality external soundcard, which is useful in applications which cannot afford the interference noise in the audio signal.
