Just a quick search online yields plentiful of information on gadgets claiming to prevent theft of bikes and small mobile vehicles. One thing caught my eyes, GPS tracker.

In recent years the wide spread use of GPS technology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Positioning_System) and smartphone seems to give high hope for GPS tracker as a way to prevent bike theft. However, is this hope being capable to be the next big thing or just a mere disillusion?
