What Does Tom Cruise Do With His iPad? [VIDEO] — Mashable doesn't get invited to a lot of red carpet events, so we took advantage of our primo spot at the Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol premiere to ask big-name stars and celebrities what they do with technology. Tom Cruise was one of our last victims and he gave us approximately 28 seconds of wonder or is it wonderment?

Nvidia tablet recalled for literally being too hot to handle — Nvidia is voluntarily recalling its SHIELD 8-inch gaming tablet. The company announced on Friday morning that it's issuing a voluntary recall of all SHIELD tablets sold between July of 2014 and July of 2015 over safety concerns. Apparently the battery can overheat and pose a fire hazard.

IBM Watson wants to give you health advice from your local CVS — IBM's ultra-smart super-computer, Watson, seems to be everywhere these days. From helping robots understand Chinese to offering cooking advice and protecting the world from offensive and ineffectual emails. Now Watson is coming to your neighborhood drugstore. No, you will not see a giant blue computer behind the counter at your local CVS, but you may feel its influence.

What to do if your PC doesn't have enough space for Windows 10 — You've read the reviews and made the decision: You want Windows 10 on your PC. The brand new operating system brings with it a host of improvements, including a new web browser, Microsoft Edge, the return of the Start Menu, better built-in apps and the chatty Cortana.

Inside the creation of Microsoft Edge, the Internet Explorer killer — Internet Explorer turns 20 this year, but there will be no celebrations. Instead IE is being pushed off the Windows desktop in favor of a brand new web browsing experience: Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer is not dead, nor will it be missing from Windows 10 when it ships on July 29.

Twitter is not good at Periscope, ironically — What was Twitter thinking? Early Tuesday afternoon, interim CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted out that Twitter's Q2 earnings call would be broadcast on Periscope, the social platform's streaming video service. I, and probably thousands of others, added Twitter Earnings to my Periscope feed. At 5 PM EDT, I opened the app and watched....nothing.

Windows 10: The Review — If you simultaneously take a step forward while stepping back, you might be accused of going nowhere. But that's Windows 10 in a nutshell. Microsoft's still-dominant operating system is changing and regressing, all in an effort to satisfy millions of existing customers while still attracting new ones.

Motorola unveils water-resistant Moto G (3rd Generation) — Motorola has a big day planned. It's rolling out two new phones in the U.S.: a flagship Moto X update and a lower-end, more road-ready Moto G. The handset maker, though, got the party started early and just unveiled the water-resistant (IPX7-rated) Moto G in India. The wait is finally over!

An AI arms race could be the death of us, scientists warn — Robots probably won't kill people, but people could kill people with robots. That's the concern of an open letter signed by scientists and other interested parties - including Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak and Stephen Hawking.

"Robots probably won't kill people, but people could kill people with robots." Alarm bells over AI 'arms race'…

Live instagram thread screen is an engineering wonder and maybe a work of art — There's something axiomatic in our need to take what was once analog, make it digital and then make it analog again. It was all I could think as I stared, transfixed, at a giant, analog-screen comprised of 6,400 spools of colored fabric, which were aligning themselves into the simulacrum of an Instagram photo I'd posted moments before.
