Intelligence gathering

Showing an interest in the company you are applying to will help create a good impression. They may ask you questions about them or you could ask them a question that interests you based on what you have found - but don't try to be 'clever'. If you have experiences that are directly associated in their work this can be a good topic to talk about at some point - you should be more comfortable talking on a familiar subject - but again, don't force the conversation to it and don't appear arrogant knowing all the answers (unless you do of course).
