There are myriad ways to navigate this city, but they’re rarely enjoyable.

I’m lucky to work from home, but I go to meetings and run errands frequently.

The most consistent way of getting around the city quickly is almost certainly on two wheels.

But though I’ve thought about braving the bike lane for years, bikes never seemed to have quite the utility I sought.

A quick disclaimer: I’ve been researching and considering e-bikes on-and-off for years, but I’m no bike expert.

To summarize some of the key specs and features:

The “Bitcoin BTC playboy” that made it rain money over one of Hong-Kong‘s poorest neighborhoods has been handed a suspended prison sentence for the stunt.

Wong Ching-kit, also known as “Coin Young Master,” fessed up to the stunt and accepted charges for “committing a nuisance in a public place,” South China Morning Post reports.

He has been given a sentence of 10 days imprisonment, suspended for two years.

Magistrate Leung Siu-ling said the promotional stunt “could easily have turned ugly when there were up to 300 people on site.”

Wong was arrested in December last year after appearing at the center of a publicity stunt where he threw HK $100 ($13) bills from the roof of a building in Kowloon district.

The Robin Hood-esque stunt though, was nothing more than guerrilla marketing to promote one of his cryptocurrency businesses.

Zynga reported mixed results for the third quarter that ended September 30, beating revenue and bookings expectations but falling short on its profits after adjusting for one-time gains.

The San Francisco publisher of social mobile games reported its highest quarterly revenue and bookings in history ($345 million and $395 million, respectively), with mobile revenue up 54% from a year ago and mobile bookings up 64%.

Revenue is based on the change in deferred revenue and bookings.

Despite the strong revenue growth from games like Empire & Puzzles and Merge Dragons, the company lost money on an adjusted basis in part because it had to pay a higher bonus to the companies it acquired (Small Giant Games and Gram Games) because they hit their incentive targets.

Zynga posted GAAP net income of $230 million, thanks to a $314 million one-time gain from the sale (and lease back) of the company’s headquarters in San Francisco.

Overall performance in the quarter was driven by strong momentum across live services as well as initial contributions from recently launched titles.

His new movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home, showcases at least four: a baseline blue-and-red, a black superspy outfit, the metallic robot-arm-equipped armor he wore in Avengers: Endgame, and a nifty new red-and-black suit.

And the color of those costumes tells you something about who these characters are at any given moment—especially if those colors, like they do in most of Far From Home, include black.

Webbed-red boots and gloves, thin enough (Ditko wrote) for the man to stick to walls.

It's controversial whether Ditko, Spidey's co-creator alongside Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee, intended the costume's legs and body to be blue or black.

So artists by convention used blue, like in Superman's and Wonder Woman's hair, or Batman's everything.

Butterflies do it, and so do peacock spiders.
