My image [NO LONGER WORKS] SpeedyMirror – As the name suggests, SpeedyMirror creates mirror of your website content on their servers across the world so they can serve each user from the mirror nearest them. All you have to do, once you create an account, is to specify the URL of your website. SpeedyMirror then downloads your content and starts serving them through their mirrors.
My image Kindle Screensavers – Visiting different websites for images, screensavers, and jailbreaking tips for your Kindle device is a little inconvenient. Instead you need a single site where you can get all of this easily. Kindle Screensavers is a free to use website that offers free Kindle background images and screensavers.
My image Instascriber – You probably know about Instapaper, the text-only read later service that lets you quickly bookmark online content for reading later in a clutter free, text-only interface. It’s a great service except for one issue – it doesn’t let you automatically subscribe to an RSS Feed of your choice. Instascriber is a tool developed by Hung Truong that lets you do exactly that.
My image PicknZip – If you use Facebook, the chances are that you’ve uploaded a number of your photos to it, some of which are not backed up by you in a separate location. So if Facebook decides to block your account tomorrow, your photos are gone too. Hence a tool like Pick & Zip should be used now and then to download your Facebook photos.

    I am confused. Since this is a speedy mirror is not free, why not go to an actual CDN provider rather than a reseller?
    That certainly gives you more speed if you are trying to find a CDN service.
    Some of the world leaders in this are:
    Akamai
    Limelight
    Edgecast
    Amazon Cloudfront and S3
    Level3
    Navi Site.
    And others.

    The rest are simple reselling what these guys offer.

    Or get a real free CDN that works, although you won't expect any control over it or a guaranteed delivery by using
    http://www.coralcdn.org/
    Which is free and does not need any special setups.

      Well Speedy Mirror is just another CD solution I suppose. Probably one of the smaller ones.
