It’s Friday yet again, which means it’s time to take a quick look over the more eccentric side of tech’s last seven days. Here's what won't be on the front pages...
We have another look at some of the weirder stories that graced the internet over the past 7 days that you probably didn’t see.
Angry Birds Cookbook
While most of us search for cookbooks by the likes of our favourite celebrity chefs Rovio Entertainment, creators of 'Angry Birds' has unleashed a cookbook of their very own.

In Japan Professor Kuniyoshi took years to perfect the ultimate pair of glasses, which according to the grapevine allows you to find item’s that you have lost.

What we want to know is, what happens when you lose the glasses?

Usually when one goes to purchase a mobile phone, you don’t pay more for the number than you do your handset. A mobile telephone number in Bahrain is on sale for $19,000 around £12,135, because of, none other than err the aesthetics. Maybe if the buyer puts the numbers on the lottery they can win the money back.
Defibrillators are used to revive people right? Well it seems that an industrial designer has came up with a crazy idea to make toast using one of these things. I wonder if they have a similar device if your steak is too rare?
