I'll let you in on a secret.
Just having the code stopped the problem they created the code to fix. Since it fixed the problem, it makes sense for it to be an easy number. I suspect the rpesident will be under a little stress if he had to actually use it, so you want to minimize mistakes.

The security guy makes a classic security review mistake. Ignoring why and the practicality and the impact.

So that actual number is irrelevant, and no, you don't punch the code and then missiles launch.

You should probably read that a little closer. In fact, read this:

See, it doesn't apply here because the express intent of the device n the car is to record music.

However, this part may apply:
"Because no additional copies can be made from the Rio, the Rio makes less copies than the SCMS would permit."
Can you copy music from the Cars device? If not, they got nothing. If you can, then you may have an issue.

No, it isn't.
I actual priced this out. Lock at the new 6 core maC. 4 grand for 6 cores and 16GB of Ram? crazy. If I bump up the specs to be a useful animation/artist box it was over 12,000 dollars. Obscene. Maybe with the IBM partnering they will get real servers at a reasonable price running OSX
