Is that the Loch Ness monster in this satellite photo used by Apple Maps? Or at least something that looks like a giant biological form underwater? It's similar to the shape spotted in Google's satellite imagery.

Microsoft is charging forward into a colourful new future, and it's dragging Nokia by the ears with it as a serious hardware partner for Windows Phone. The first Windows Phone 8 device on the market will be the Nokia Lumia 920. This is Nokia's coming out party, Microsoft's mobile mitzvah and Lumia's naming ceremony.

Monster Cable has a long history of making outrageous claims about superiority to justify its high price tag. But the latest effort appears to be even more outrageous than ever before, with a Harvey Norman store allegedly comparing a Monster cable to a composite cable, without informing the customer.
Yesterday, you may have seen Giz catch Monster Cable CEO Noel Lee on a tricked out gold-rimmed Segway. Ridiculous as that was, we've now got video — and if you listen carefully, you can hear his assistant remarking that's a "million dollar Segway". Here's hoping that's hyperbole - not literal fact. We'll let you decide.
