I conduct quite a few lectures and have recently started wondering if an iPod could be used to review the pdfs of a lecture and even project a Keynote. I recall some discussion about the latter but have never seen it done.
My lecture keynotes are in the range of 30-50MB each so even a Nano could carry an entire series. I looked briefly for leads and found this for iPods with tvout support: iPresent It – a slideshow-to-iPod utility to convert PowerPoint, PDF or Keynote presentations into slideshows synced with an iPod. “This makes iPresent It particularly suited for doing presentations on the go: never carry a laptop into a presentation again.”
There is also have iPDA for handling and syncing docs, rss feeds and the like.
iPresentIt apparently works with digital cameras too! Very nice, I have to try this.
What about my humble 4GB iPod Mini? Well it can present text in 4kb files, and there is an online script to do that for you at ebookhood.com!
P.s. Its worth mentioning that my phone is only for making calls, or evading them.
