Celebrated actor, personality, and all-around nerd, Wil Wheaton updates his memoir of collected blog posts with all new material and annotations as he reexamines one of the most interesting lives in Hollywood and fandom–and now for the first time in audio, narrated by Wil himself!

From starring in Stand by Me to playing Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation to playing himself, in his second (third?) iconic role of Evil Wil Wheaton in The Big Bang Theory, to becoming a social media supernova, Wil Wheaton has charted a career course unlike anyone else, and has emerged as one of the most popular and well respected names in science fiction, fantasy and pop culture.

Back in 2001, Wil began blogging on wilwheaton.net. Believing himself to have fallen victim to the curse of the child actor, Wil felt relegated to the convention circuit, and didn’t expect many would want to read about his random experiences and personal philosophies.

Yet, much to his surprise, people were reading. He still blogs, and now has an enormous following on social media with well over 3 million followers.

In Still Just a Geek, Wil revisits his 2004 collection of blog posts, Just a Geek, filled with insightful and often laugh-out-loud annotated comments, additional later writings, and all new material written for this publication. The result is an incredibly raw and honest memoir, in which Wil opens up about his life, about falling in love, about coming to grips with his past work, choices, and family, and finding fulfillment in the new phases of his career. From his times on the Enterprise to his struggles with depression to his starting a family and finding his passion–writing–Wil Wheaton is someone whose life is both a cautionary tale and a story of finding one’s true purpose that should resonate with fans and aspiring artists alike.

  • Apple iPhone 6 Availability – 09/13/2014

    iphone6-silver-select-2014

    I thought I would keep this table up to date with iPhone availability. I’m not sure how long this will stay up to date, but I will keep periodically updating it. This is current as of 8:15AM Central Time.

    The iPhone 6 Plus is still stating 3 to 4 weeks for all models, on all carriers and in all colors. I would not expect this to change drastically anytime soon. The only change is that the 64GB Space Gray model on AT&T is now at 7 to 10 days.

    Update 2:30PM Central Time: The 64GB Gold on T-Mobile is now stating 7 – 10 days. This has been the only change since 8:15AM Central Time.

    Update 8:00PM Central Time: The 128GB Silver on T-Mobile, 16GB Space Gray on AT&T, and 64GB Gold on AT&T, are all now stating 7 – 10 days. If you are still looking for phone to get on Launch Day, the 128GB Gold version is still available on all the carriers, through Apple, in the United States.

  • Apple’s iPhone 6 Pre-order Fiasco

    iphone6p-gray-select-2014

    Issues are always expected for early adopters and today has been no exception. Apple stated that pre-orders would begin today, September 12th, for their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The Apple Online store was still down at 4AM Central, and came up some time by 5AM Central. The only way that users seemed to be able to access the store was through the Apple App Store application on their iPhones and iPads.

    There are many reasons to deal with all of the issues and try to pre-order as soon as possible. The primary reason is shipping delays. As of 5:45AM Central Time, the shipping times for the iPhone 6 from all the carriers (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile) and in all sizes (16GB, 64GB, and 128GB) and in all colors (Silver, Gold, and Space Gray) is still 9/19. However, the iPhone 6 Plus is a different story.

    Update 7:45AM Central Time. All iPhone 6 Plus Models are now at 3-4 weeks for all carriers and colors. These must be in shorter supply than the iPhone 6.

    Table information from 7:45AM Central.
