While I do understand that our fragmented laws significantly hinder development in the EU, I'm still glad that I live in Austria when it comes to entertainment.

Take "The Evil Dead" for example. This movie was confiscated in Germany and is still kind of illegal. In France it is rated "12".

So a movie that could be legally seen by teens in France was illegal for grown-ups in Germany? Ridiculous.

Being able to download everything illegally off the internet, Germans who want to own an uncut copy of a PC game buy in Austria. Both countries are full members of the EU.

No, I really don't want a common, homogenous content law if there's the slightest chance that Germany and their stupid censors have a say in it.

After getting used to it I really noticed the difference, and I'm greatly missing it on my Nexus 9 at the moment.

My Nexus 4 now had two sleeps of death in a row. Yes, right after hard resetting and rebooting it went to take another little nap of what-the-heck-not-again. With the power button only sometimes working, hard resetting takes about a minute of fiddling around to finally work.

New Nexus 5 can't come fast enough.
