Penalty of 250 euros? WTF!?
My gf drove 43 km/h in a 30 km/h zone, and had to pay 25 euros...

Not fascist, just over the top.
I mean 10 times is something, and there is a difference between Germany and Slovenia regarding living costs and prices...

Driving 43 km/h in a 30-km/h zone will cost you €300 here. Driving 51 km/h will cost you €1,000.

I prefer the Swiss and Finnish fine systems, which are income-based, and this sometimes produce fines of over €100000 for just a few km/h above the speed limit .

Haven't you got Soundhound on your smartphone? It'll listen to a part of a song and tell you what it is.

Yesterday I came back from Prague, where I spent three nights, very beautiful city. Road-wise, driving the road E55 (Bundestrasse 310 in A \ state road 3 in CZ) from the end of the Austrian A7 north of Linz to the junction with the Czech D1 S-E of Prague (except the section of D3 already opened) is a nightmare: huge lines of cars and trucks, slow curves and steep slopes, a Linz-Prague motorway is really needed! Fortunately, Austrians are progressing quickly with the construction of the S10 motorway till the Czech border (I spotted some Asfinag billboards advertising its opening in late 2015), while the Czech D3 is still only in planning stage. (Bright side: I vistied České Budějovice on the way back, I wouldn't have done this if i was on a motorway).

I know, on the way back I was about to switch the right turning indicator at that intesection, but then I realized I would arrive home too late (without this, I arrived home at 11,15 p.m.). České Budějovice, instead, it's not a detour, you have to pass through anyway.

Samsung smartphones has tons of bloatware (also known as bundled software or crapware).

If you want to show off buy an iPhone, seriously, , (and will be the best buddy if you have a Mac computer).

Anyway, if all you want is Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp, Messenger, Facebook, etc etc… Motorola Moto G is a good deal: is cheap and has has one of the best android performances.

Like Nexus phones has no personalisation of the Android GUI and no bloatware, so has the best performance compared to the most expensive android phones in the market, like samsung S series.

Also have a look at Xiaomi, LG and HTC, they have better models, and cheaper than samsung.

And yes, I have an Moto G, it's the best smartphone since the dead of my Nokia E71 and the following 2 phones, all of them android.

I don't use my phone very much, so I bought a Samsung Galaxy Y on the cheap. The phone is total crap, it has only like 200 MB of internal storage, so you can put about 5 apps on it before it runs out of memory, and Android doesn't allow all apps to be moved to an SD card. I couldn't even update Whatsapp a while ago.

There are Android apps that will make possible for you to install other apps on the SD card.
