Can you feel the anticipation for the end of the week? Despite the fact it's only Monday, there's definitely more than just a handful of people out there waiting for the weekend. Nevertheless, welcome to another edition of the Daily Slash, where we bring you the other interesting pieces of news you may have missed during the daily grind. In tonight's issue, we have a few iPad stories that boast ridiculous numbers, as well as a little bit of (figurative) gold goodness. We've managed to wrangle up a DIY story that's destined to make you want to get medieval on someone you know, and we've got bookends straight from a galaxy far, far away. And, to tie it all up, we've got the end of an era. Got that popcorn ready? Great. Let's do it.
