David Elder, an amateur photographer, was attempting to get photos of a swan from a pier at Fort Augustus on the southwest end of Loch Ness when something mysterious caught his eye disturbing the calm waters.

He described it to the UK Mirror as a ?solid black object? just under the water that created a wave atop the lake surface. The sighting immediately fueled speculation that this might have been a Loch Ness Monster sighting.

Elder, 50, also took video of the unidentified ?sea creature.?

?Out of the corner of my right eye, I caught site of a black area of water about 15 feet long, which developed into a kind of bow wave,? Elder of East Kilbride told the Mirror.

?I?m convinced this was caused by a solid black object under the water. The water was very still at the time and there were no ripples coming off the wave and no other activity on the water.

?Water was definitely going over something solid and making the wave. It looks like the sort of wave perhaps created by a windsurfing board, but there was nobody on the Loch at the time, no boats, nothing.

?It is something I just can?t explain.?

 

The lake in the Highlands of Scotland stretches 23 miles long, is 755 feet deep and was made famous by alleged sightings of a legendary sea monster dubbed Nessie.

 

The Loch Ness Monster dates to medieval times.

I'm pretty sure that's a wave, and by pretty sure I mean: That's a wave.

There is clearly something that people keep seeing, but I have no idea what it is.

its commonly known that smaller whales and other aquatic animals come into the loch often so it could be those.

wind can create a single wave in a middle of the lake while everything else is still.

 

has it happened in any other lake, no one would have paid any attention to it.

Can we please dam off the freaking loch, drain all the water out and take these "crytozoologists" down there to rub their face in the ground once and for all and be done with it?

For a kick off, it was established years ago there would not be enough food in the loch to sustain a large creature like Nessie. I'm sure with all technology and radars that have scanned the place, if there was something in the loch it would have shown up by now.

It's a great tourist attraction, and these stories bring plenty of money to the area, but it's all a myth.

      Samsung Galaxy S21 unboxing and first impressions
      by João Carrasqueira

      Samsung's Galaxy S series is a staple of smartphone releases in the first quarter of every year, and this year was no exception. The Galaxy S21 family was introduced last month, and while many of its changes were iterative, some things definitely stand out.

      Most notably, the price. After years of consecutive price increases that led us to the Galaxy S20 starting at $999, Samsung has finally cut back, and the Galaxy S21 starts at just $799. Samsung seems to have learned a lot from the more affordable Galaxy S20 FE it released later in the year, and made smart sacrifices like using a plastic back and reducing the screen resolution.

      Still, this is a flagship phone in most ways that matter. You get a Snapdragon 888 chipset (or an Exynos 2100 outside of the U.S.), 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. On top of that, a 120Hz display with the same Samsung quality as ever, a triple-camera setup on the back, and a 4,000mAh battery.

      Samsung has also made what I consider a very significant design change, creating a metal camera bump that melts into the frame of the phone. This new look is fantastic, and it definitely helps this phone stand out. While we're only getting started with the Galaxy S21, you can check out our first impressions video below:

      RootMetrics says EE is the mobile carrier to beat in the UK
      by Paul Hill



      EE has announced that it came top in terms of overall performance in RootMetrics’ latest report. The report authors described EE as the “operator to beat, with fast speeds … and impressive 5G results.” In Metropolitan areas, including suburbs, EE got a RootScore of 100 while Vodafone, O2 and Three scored 48, 23 and 15 respectively.

      EE was named the best carrier across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, offering the fastest speeds and the most reliable connection. Of the operators that were looked at, EE was the only carrier whose 5G median download speeds went above 100 Mbps in all the test cities. The company also topped the list when aggregate median download speeds across the whole of the UK were looked at; EE’s download speed was 43 Mbps, Vodafone scored 21.1 Mbps, Three got 13.9 Mbps and O2 came last with a median download speed of 12.9 Mbps.

      Commenting on the findings, CEO of BT’s Consumer business Marc Allera said:

      It should be noted that a lot of the data in the report is aggregated on a country-wide level. You may not recognise EE as the best provider if their infrastructure is poor in your area. RootMetrics said its data is based on 644,546 tests performed in 750 places around the country including in 16 metro areas.

      Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G unboxing and first impressions
      by João Carrasqueira

      Top-tier smartphones, especially from brands like Samsung and Apple, are getting incredibly expensive. Because that kind of experience isn't feasibly affordable for everyone, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, a cheaper variant of its flagship phone from earlier in the year. This phone packs quite a punch, but it brings down the price to $699, while the standard Galaxy S20 original launched at $999.

      The Galaxy S20 FE 5G comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, even in Europe, though there is an Exynos 990-powered variant of the phone (which isn't available in the U.S.). It also has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, depending on the configuration you choose. The display has been toned down to Full HD+ resolution, but it still supports a 120Hz refresh rate.

      The camera setup still includes three rear cameras and one selfie camera on the back, but some of the specs have been downgraded to bring the price down, like a lower resolution for the telephoto camera or smaller pixels for the ultra-wide lens.

      Overall, though, the Galaxy S20 aims to be Samsung's value king, and it might just be exactly that. We'll be working on a full review in the next couple of weeks, but you can watch our initial hands-on below.

      Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra unboxing and first impressions
      by João Carrasqueira

      Back in August, Samsung introduced this year's member of the Galaxy Note series, stepping it up to the Note20 and Note20 Ultra. The company has sent us over the latter, and it comes in the new Mystic Bronze color, which Samsung is using across its entire lineup of devices this year.

      In Europe, the Galaxy Note20 Ultra is powered by an Exynos 990 chipset, featuring two cores at 2.75GHz, two at 2.5GHz, and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores at 2GHz. It has 12GB of RAM, and it comes with 256GB of internal storage, a configuration that's also not available in the U.S., where the only options are 128GB or 512GB. This variant costs €1,339 in Portugal or £1,179 in the UK.

      It has a huge 6.9-inch QHD+ display, now with a 120Hz refresh rate, though this only works in Full HD+. As usual for the Note family, it comes with an S Pen, and this time, thanks to the increased refresh rate, it should have lower latency than last year's models. The phone also has some new pen-related features, such as text recognition for handwritten notes, or the ability to convert them to plain text. This is still a wireless S Pen with a battery, so it still supports air gestures and you can use it as a remote shutter for the camera on the phone.

      The camera setup is very similar to the Galaxy S series from earlier in the year, featuring a 108MP primary camera, a 12MP wide-angle lens, and a 12MP periscope telephoto camera, with up to 50x digital zoom. There's a 10MP camera on in a punch-hole on the front.

      We're also taking a look at the Galaxy Buds Live, the new truly wireless earbuds introduced alongside the Galaxy Note20 Ultra. They're the first Galaxy Buds with active noise cancellation, and they feature a new bean-like design. There are also features like a dedicated voice pickup unit to activate Bixby with voice. Check out our hands-on video below.
