Apple’s MacBook Air continues to bear the brunt of Microsoft’s Surface ad budget — As Microsoft begins ramping up the holiday ad blitz for its Surface tablets, the software giant has kept Apple’s MacBook Air squarely in the crosshairs, continuing its string of television spots in the US that pit the two devices against each other.

Private searching:  with OS X Yosemite, you can set Safari’s search engine to DuckDuckGo — If you’re looking for a more anonymous way to search the Internet than Google or Bing, OS X Yosemite lets you change your search engine to DuckDuckGo. It’s easy and fast.

The best farm animal simulator on Mac is turning into an MMO — Goat Simulator is one of the best games of the year – seriously, you can waste a whole lot of time doing absolutely nothing as a goat –and now it’s getting a ridiculous update that is going to make it even more of a time-sink. This Thursday, the PC version of the game gets a patch that will turn it into a multiplayer game, and not just a multiplayer game, but a multiplayer fantasy RPG. What a time to be alive! [It’s not even April.]
