(Photo via Bird) Socially distant travel just got a lot easier with Bird's new high-tech, foldable e-scooter. Thinking about it today, I now realize that it was actually Bird in it's infancy, just a few days after launching. The scooters didn't even have Bird logos on them. Bird founder Travis VanderZanden, on his first look at the Xiaomi M365 e-scooter, which ultimately became Bird's flagship vehicle He quickly landed at Uber, as vice president of driver growth. Bird Two is a recently launched scooter model that takes the comfort of a Bird One ride even further.

GetUpside is a legit cashback app that gets you up to 25¢/gal off per gallon of gas. It also allows you to speed up faster while also providing safety features: better control and self-sealing tires. Bird unveiled a new, foldable electric scooter, the Bird Air, which it will sell directly to customers for $599.
