2 Questions: New Bike Computer & Squeaky Back Wheel

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

2 Questions: New Bike Computer & Squeaky Back Wheel

I have two questions and I figured I'd make one thread.

1) My back wheel is squeaking a lot. I can tell the sound is coming from the back wheel and not the front. When I stop pedaling the sound is still there. The brakes are not rubbing against the wheel. Does anyone know how I can fix & what type of lube I should use?

2) I'm going to upgrade to a wireless computer. I currently have Protégé 9 computer by Planet Bike. I absolutely love it. I was thinking about upgrading to the Protégé 9 wireless. Does anyone have this computer? What do you think? Any other recommendations?

Thanks in advance. Everyone is always such a big help here!

I had squeaking between my rear axle and my frame once. Smeared a tiny bit of grease on the dropouts and it was fixed.
