Another milestone for Facebook on its slow march towards world domination. According to analytics company ComScore, Facebook has overtaken search-centric Yahoo! to become the world’s third largest website (when measured by unique visits). The social networking site is raking in just under 650 million unique visitors each month, trailing only Microsoft and Google. If it is any consolation to Yahoo! they still rank first in unique visitors in the U.S., although… Facebook does account for nearly 25% of all online ad impressions served in the States — over twice as many as Yahoo!.

On Friday, we told you about a rumor we were hearing surrounding the release-date and pricing for Sprint’s ZTE Peel; the iPod touch case that provides 3G internet access. Today, we’ve got cold hard evidence to confirm our previous scoop. As you can see from the above screen shot, the ZTE Peel will indeed be hitting the Now Network on November 14th and will retail for $79.99. The plan that Sprint will provide Peel customers is a $29.99, month-to-month, offering that will include a 1GB data allowance; overages will be billed at $0.05 per megabyte. The Wi-Fi case will be able to provide internet access for up to two devices and supports second and third generation iPod touch devices. Although… we do have to wonder if Sprint/ZTE will delay the current Peel as it is not compatible with the fourth generation iPod touch; most notably, the camera is in a different location.
What do you think iPod touch owners, you like?
