1. Fitting the player to the needs of the user
The players are divided to 2 groups, flash players and hard drive players.
Flash Players:
The information is stored on a built in flash memory or on a card. The advantages of this type of player are that it's lightweight, shockproof and consumes low electricity.
Those kinds of features make it ideal for those who engage in sports.
Hard drive players:
Very similar to a hard drive in a computer, the hard drive in the player allows you to store big sizes of digital information. Players like that are for people who need a lot of storage room.
These players are more sensitive to shocks and they are more expensive than the flash players.

2. Sound quality
The sound quality is a very important factor when choosing an mp3 player. The mp3 player can be impressive on the outside but it won't be worth at all if it won't provide the sound quality we are looking for.
Most of the big companies like Cowon and iRiver provide you with an excellent sound quality and that's why its recommended to buy a player from the well known companies.
Sampling quality:
One of the most important things that affect the sound is the bit rate, the bit rate is measured with Kbps and when that rate is higher than the file will be more similar to the original and the sound quality would be higher.
Also when the file has more quality than it takes more storage on the mp3 player.
It's important to choose a player that supports a few bitrates (128, 160, 192, 256, 320) and at least 128kbps. Also it is recommended that the player will support VBR a thing that helps make the files smaller. This how on the loud parts it will take more memory but on the softer parts it takes less memory.

3. Storage capacity
The players today have memory that ranges from a few hundreds mega bytes and goes to more than 100 GB.
Lets say the average song takes 3 minutes and that takes 3MB, on 5GB player you can store between 1000-2000 songs, depends on their quality. Most of the companies refer to the 128Kbps bit rate.
In most cases when the player has a bigger memory it's also bigger, some of the flash players include an expansion slot.

4. Supporting Formats:
In the digital world there are many formats to save sound files, some of the formats are standard in all the mp3 players but others will only be a part of certain companies. When your player supports a wide variety of formats than it'll be easier for you to get music without converting it first.

Sometimes I really think the cell phone jammer is really a necessity in schools. A lot of students are immerging in texting during classes.This is annoying. I saw the site sells gsm signal jammer but I don't know whether I can buy one for the sake of classroom order.
