The beauty of this is like so:

1. User pays same amount for 'capped' bandwidth regardless
2. "Developer" pays for their bandwidth - even though it doesn't really line the pockets of the user with any savings
3. "Developer" passes buck to users with higher prices/more ads.

Wham-bam, thank you ma'am.

Meh, at that cost ($9/mo?) - developers using it for non-android purposes will move away to a VPS. Giving the platform really just exclusivity for Android app makers for the publicity perks. The instance and bandwidth expenses are garbage compared to AWS.

For OCD purposes the quote from the movie is "My old pappy used to say 'He who fights and runs away can live to run away another day'" . It was "Bret Maverick". And in the end they had a line talking about how he always misquotes his dad.

Real computer scientists like having a computer on their desk, else how could they read their mail?
