Even bikes with chunky locks stored in well-lit places are not safe from a thief. There are other safeguards designed to prevent theft, but there is nothing as effective as a GPS system to improve the chances of recovery. Here are some ways to track your bike with a GPS: 1. Faux Rear Bike Light A faux rear bike light may be mounted onto the bike to track the bike and keep it from being stolen.

Any computer, tablet, or smartphone owner is familiar with the MP3. The audio format is by far the most common used for music and podcasts. It has become a household name – a word synonymous with music devices and files. So, how did the MP3 become so successful, and what are the secrets of its success?

The Problem According to the American Psychological Association, most teens are only getting around 7.5 hours per sleep each night by the time they are 16 years old. During their earlier years they were getting around 10 hours per night. What’s
