The four bills include a pilot program for shared e-scooters and legalizing e-scooters that can only go  up to 15 mph. A similar bill would allow for the use of e-bikes with a max speed of 20 mph, while another creates a conversion program for throttle e-bikes to become pedal-assist e-bicycles. Read more...

There are literally thousands of different headphones, earphones, and earbuds out there to choose from. All have the same idea at heart — to provide you with music without having to play it out loud for everyone to hear. But some achieve this result so much better than others. 

Sure, you could just hit Amazon and buy the cheapest, but that's not always a great idea either. There's also the issue of different headphones and earphones being good for all kinds of different purposes. Are you planning on listening at home? Taking them on your commute? Do you want to avoid lousy battery life? Go completely wireless? Read more...
