Oh man, what a week it's been. Over the course of seven days (and nearly 80,000 steps by this reporter alone), the Engadget staff descended upon CES 2020 to bring you the biggest, best, weirdest and wildest trends in consumer electronics. But the rest of the world doesn't revolve around CES and plenty of news happened while we were scouring the show floor. Here are some of the top stories of the week from everywhere that isn't Las Vegas.

Lime exits 12 cities and lays off 100 employees in search of profit

While riders are throwing themselves against the ramparts and open car doors of the ongoing urban mobility wars, Lime appears to be fighting a losing battle.
