Linux-based bike computer tracks stats, deters theft

A startup called Wi-MM is prepping a bicycle computer that promises to notify users if their bike is stolen, then sound an alarm and track it down via GPS. The Bike+ BPU-100 device runs on embedded Linux, links to cloud services via a 3G cellular modem, and offers additional capabilities like route tracking, real-time location and mapping, Bluetooth sync to smartphones, and fleet management features.
