Google Apps Engine as CDN Service

RE: Google Apps Engine as CDN Service
I ran a couple of tests and it does look like the initial connect times are being distributed but the TTFB/response times vary quite widely. It's hard to say for sure but my guess is that it doesn't actually work like a CDN and they don't distribute your content to all of the edge locations (don't even cache it - I ran 5 tests from each location and they all performed similarly).

My guess is that the app has a "home", much like Amazon's S3 (which is why they have the cloudfront CDN offering on top of S3).

Also looks like quite a hassle to update. I much prefer just paying for a real CDN (they're cheap enough these days) and using an origin pull so I don't have to think about uploading the files.
