Computers... Newb q'sFrith

Ok I'm a computer programmer/cyclist who wants ask a bunch of cyclists/? a computer question. There's something beautifully ironic about that.
-I understand that to get a cadence reading It can be a function of gearing and speed. Which doesn't account for coasting. What are some examples of this type of computer? flightdeck?
-I also understand that it's possible to get this reading from a sensor on the crank? With this set-up is it possible to get a gearing reading as a function of cadence and speed? I suppose not because different gearing combos offer the same or similar gear inches...so could you get a gear inch reading or something to that effect?
-Wireless... good? bad? finicky?
I guess to sum it all up... what computer has a cadence sensor and a speed sensor and is wireless and stable/accurate? Oh yeah and cheap?

Speed, cadence, stable, and cheap - Cateye Astrale

Speed, cadence, stable, wireless, and cheap - no such thing
so what if we take cheap out of the mix? (nm)Frith
