cellphone cheating

A law student (!!) with a FIDE rating of 2363 was consulting his cellphone during the just-completed German Championship.  Story on ChessBase.

Rumor has it that one local player consulted his iPod (chock-full of chess applications) during a recent national championship event.  Isn't your reputation, and your school's reputation, worth more than a win in an ultimately meaningless board game?
