Sounds to me like Amazon decided the instance should be given 1024GB 
of disk space by default, regardless of the fact that it (obviously) 
remained completely unused.

Nick, if Amazon were a reasonable company that certainly ought to be 
the sort of thing you could say "I didn't realise, it was 
misleading, and I didn't use the offered space, please refund me".  
However given their love of automation and robotic offerings I 
suspect such pleas would be ignored.
