    I bet a few stickers will achieve the same if you know exactly where to put them. Finding the code combination on the web shouldn’t be too difficult.

    What exactly is it anyway, some engraving with paint in it, or less fancy?

    Sure. Because the actual cost of this incredibly complex procedure has gone up. You’d think a company that consistently tells you how smart it is would be able to figure out a way to do this LESS expensively over time. What happened? The lone Master Coding Technician put on his power suit and demanded a raise?

    $50/bit is good price. This means the new Leica 64GB flash memory card will only cost $27 trillion.

    Where is the actual press release from Leica? How much costs the coding for European consumers? Thanks.
