Wednesday has arrived, and with it comes a bunch of great stories to tell you friends and family about. First, Stanford University is showing off an aluminum battery, which doesn't seem like a huge deal until you realize it's bendable, can fully recharge in about a minute and might change the landscape of gadget batteries someday.
Microsoft is finally bringing its live TV tuning service to North America sometime soon, making it possible for you cord-cutting aficionados to take one more step towards cable company freedom.
And finally, we have to tell you about a farm in the UK that's growing...furniture. Yes, you read that right. This company plants trees, and as they grow, guides them into chair, table, lamp and frame shapes. The only problem? You'll be waiting a while for your furniture to finish maturing.
