nessie boatApple Maps might be able to get you from point A to point B in an unfamiliar territory, but this does not mean that it is the first app or program that people go to in order to find their way around. Google Maps is, no doubt about it, still the undisputed king when it comes to navigational apps, and Nokia’s free HERE Maps too, does a pretty good job. Of course, there are some strange events in Google’s online services including a lady who caught her fiance cheating on her, now what are the odds of that happening? Apple Maps is not immune to its own strangeness, too, as some claim that satellite photos offered by Apple shows off what could be Nessie, the nickname for the fabled Loch Ness monster. The thing is, ‘Nessie’ happened to be nothing more than a boat, plain and simple.

A superior version of the satellite photo has depicted a boat, and this image is not seen on Google Maps at the moment. Of course, in a low resolution image, it could be mistaken for the famous creature that some folks believe exist deep in the loch, although naysayers have long claimed that this is nothing more than a wake from a boat – which has proven to be that exactly in a higher resolution.

The human mind is certainly extremely adept at seeing what it wants to see, and will be able to carve out a niche of its imagination to deliver an interesting synopsis on a particular situation. What next, Bigfoot appearing on Apple Maps?
