Agree. The console doesn't show you everything. And the "eventual consistency" aspect bites hard when you check the console one moment and see certain values, come back again, the values are way way up, come back again, they are back down to almost nil. The company seems to have adopted the "eventual consistency" notion as an over-arching theme of how they do everything. I am guessing the problem is that the system is too vast and complex and no one really knows how it all works and tracking down charges is difficult with so many moving parts. There seems to be no way to drill down and account for the charges accurately. It's all very fuzzy and the effect on the user experience is that the logic behind how they charge you is very dodgy and no one can explain it.

Submission + - Cheap, Biodegradable Sugar Batteries Could Be Refilled Like Toner Cartridges (

Zothecula writes: Even today's best rechargeable lithium batteries do lose their ability to hold a charge after a while, and are considered toxic waste once discarded. In just a few years, however, they may be replaced by batteries that are refillable and biodegradable, and that will also have a higher energy density yet a lower price ... and they'll run on sugar.
