Some students use iPod-compatible voice recorders to record test answers in advance and them play them back, said 16-year-old Mountain View junior Damir Bazdar.

Others download crib notes onto the music players and hide them in the “lyrics” text files. Even an audio clip of the old “Schoolhouse Rock” take on how a bill makes it through Congress can come in handy during some American government exams.

Kelsey Nelson, a 17-year-old senior at the school, said she used to listen to music after completing her tests — something she can no longer do since the ban. Still, she said, the ban has not stopped some students from using the devices.

“You can just thread the earbud up your sleeve and then hold it to your ear like you’re resting your head on your hand,” Nelson said. “I think you should still be able to use iPods. People who are going to cheat are still going to cheat, with or without them.”

Still, schools around the world are hoping bans will at least stave off some cheaters.

The practice of managing the flow of Internet data is known as “traffic shaping,” and is already widespread among Internet service providers.

It usually involves slowing down some forms of traffic, like file-sharing, while giving others priority.

Other ISPs have attempted to block some file-sharing application by so-called “port filtering,” but that method is easily circumvented and now largely ineffective.

Comcast’s approach to traffic shaping is different because of the drastic effect it has on one type of traffic — in some cases blocking it rather than slowing it down — and the method used, which is difficult to circumvent and involves the company falsifying network traffic.

The “net neutrality” debate erupted in 2005, when AT&T Inc. suggested it would like to charge some Web companies more for preferential treatment of their traffic.

Consumer advocates and Web heavyweights like Google Inc. and Amazon Inc. cried foul, saying it’s a bedrock principle of the Internet that all traffic be treated equally.

To get its acquisition of BellSouth Corp. approved by the Federal Communications Commission, AT&T agreed in late 2006 not to implement such plans or prioritize traffic based on its origin for two and a half years.

“Well if that’s not the biggest bag over the head, punch in the face I’ve ever got!”  –..Chevy Chase.. Christmas Vacation….

I think that’s a great line by ..Chevy Chase..… I can relate to that statement, too because I got hit by the biggest bunch of bull you’ve ever seen.  You may be reading because you noticed my name is dragged in the mud online.  Let me explain.  The posts made are the actions of a person using fake identities.   Sadly, in this day people still lie just as much online as they do in person.  In fact, it’s easier to lie online too.  So if you ever had a lie made on you, or met someone who had the audacity to lie to your face, then you know what I’m going through.
