The Oscult Is An iPad-Connected Ultrasound Machine — Healthcare in developing nations is a problem just aching for a solution. But it's a big problem. Chipping away at that predicament is a company called Oscadi. Oscadi has created a piece of hardware, called Oscult, that allows you to perform an ultrasound by simply plugging their device into an iPad.

IO Feels Like A Human Friend Who Gives Great Restaurant Recommendations — Yelp and Foursquare don't quite get the job done. We're all aware of this. Which works out well for IO, the Russian company behind a social concierge app that can answer any question you have about restaurants. Honestly, if I wasn't here to tell you that IO is a machine, you might mistake it for a real-life, brilliant human being.

MilkzUpBottle Is Yo For When You’re Out Of Milk — I'm not great at being an adult. If I'm lucky enough to have milk in the fridge for my cereal, it's normally gone bad. Luckily, a hack at today's Disrupt EU Hackathon can tell you everything you need to know about your milk situation.

Watch The Disrupt Europe Live Stream Right Here! — TechCrunch has crossed the pond and has set up shop in London for the second annual Disrupt Europe conference. This year, we're in London at Old Billingsgate and we couldn't be more excited to hang out with our European friends.

Snapchat Ads Are Probably Cooler Than Facebook’s, But Still Not Cool — Prepare for ads on Snapchat, bruh! The company announced on Friday that users will start receiving ads from brands under the Recent Updates section of the app. This is the same portion of the Snapchat inbox where you find Stories, a product that threads together multiple snaps (both video or photo) into one, long snap.

Bag Week: The Pad & Quill Attache — If life was like Toy Story, and when we fell asleep, all of our inanimate objects suddenly came to life, the Pad & Quill Attache bag would be some super combo of both Woody and Buzz Lightyear. Socially, this bag would be the head honcho.

PaintZen, With $1.8M In Seed, Is The Uber For House Painting — People used to wash their own cars, until car washes started opening up and made it way easier not to. The same is true for painting the interior of your home. Almost anyone can do it, but almost no one wants to. That's where PaintZen comes in.

Fly Or Die: Motorola Moto X — The Moto X (2nd gen) is a welcome addition in a world full of big phones. It's relatively slim and compact and, just like its predecessor, comes with options for customization for the back panel. But going beyond that, the $500 phone comes unlocked and is spec'd to impress, with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

As Moveline, The TechStars-Backed Moving App, Expands To New Cities, We Test Out The Service — Reports suggest, and I have independently confirmed, that moving is one of the most awful, stressful, painful processes you can experience in a lifetime. Yet the cost of living in NY forces many to move around each year, when their lease expires, popping from place to place.

Bag Week: Hex Onyx Origin Laptop Bag — You might say, "It's a bag! How much can someone say about a single bag?" A lot, it turns out, because the Hex Onyx Origin isn't just any bag. As a staunch backpack fan (not shoulder bags or briefcases), this is the only backpack I've ever worn that made me feel like a grownup.
