In Pictures: The 31 weirdest, wackiest and coolest sci/tech stories of 2012

From Google Android development to crazy iPhone stunts, it’s been a busy year

Sadly, it's likely not the last time you'll hear of this kind of stupidity but, a Pennsylvania man was arrested in September for refusing to return an iPhone he found unless he was paid a $40 ransom. According to a report on The Smoking Gun, the story began when Donna Barr's daughter lost her iPhone at the Rave Movie Theatre on Sept. 7. After hearing that her daughter lost the phone, Barr called the iPhone only to allegedly get Erick Rosales Rojo on the other end who said if she wanted the phone back, he needed to get $40. When Rojo showed up the next day to exchange the iPhone for cash, he was arrested.
