The Pixel 3a is made from polycarbonate, while the Pixel 3 and Pixel 2 are made from more luxurious materials. The Pixel 3 is all glass, while the Pixel 2 has an aluminum body with a glass panel at the top. The glass sections will be fragile of course, but the Pixel 2’s aluminum and the Pixel 3a’s polycarbonate are likely to be more durable over time. Still, a case is recommended for all three. The Pixel 3 has an advantage in waterproofing too, thanks to an IP68-rating that’s slightly superior to the Pixel 2’s IP67-rating.

For example, if you wanted to cut out words you may need to cut it out one letter at a time. This will take longer, but if you don’t have room, or the budget for the larger Cricut machines, the extra time spent is worth it. … [Read more...] about Being small isn’t the Cricut Joy’s only trick for crafters
After playing a few maps, you will quickly see the level of thought that went into the gameplay. Frequently in RTS games, gamers will find something- usually just a minor thing or two- that they wish they could do but can’t. Sometimes it is just a simple matter of wishing they could see where a certain unit is, or that there were simpler ways to do a particular chain of commands.

In StarCraft II, you will frequently start to wish Blizzard had done this or that, then see that there is a way to do exactly what you hoped for. Some games spend years on exacting and detailed graphics. Blizzard spent years on exacting and detailed controls.
