RI should be "Was that a state I just passed through?". Funny, for a small state they are pretty dismissive of the (only relatively) larger state of CT. Driving down 95 from RI, the Interstate sign says "South New York" or something like that. Nevermind that state in between or the somewhat large city of New Haven along the way!

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
