While Anand is away on a well-deserved vacation (ed: and as such isn’t around to stop us from doing this), we wanted to give The Boss a very special shout-out to wish him a happy 30th birthday.

For those of you familiar with our history, Anand has operated AnandTech since he was just 14 years old, which means he’s now been writing reviews (and breaking things) for half of his life. And while he has slowed down a bit with age – we understand that he sometimes sleeps now – his hard work still puts the rest of us (younger and older) to shame. But in all seriousness, even after having read AnandTech for most of those 15 years and worked for Anand for many of them, he continues to amaze us on a regular basis.

Of course they say that with age comes wisdom. On his 30th birthday it’s clear that Anand acquired both of those in spades – which is probably why he’s on vacation while we’re still working (ed: hey!).

Happy 30th birthday Anand!

    In light of the most recent Apple product review, yes that was kind of a funny comment... Though rather inappropriate for this specific post on the website. Maybe you should have saved it for a different time where it was perhaps in better taste xP Reply

    Happy birthday!

    Thanks for starting and carrying on with the most excellent tech/review site out there. One that has, for me, been practically a daily visit for nearly a decade and a half.

    Just wanted to chime in with another Happy Birthday! I've been an avid Anandtech reader for over ten years and it is hands down the best tech website on the internet. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication in making Anandtech what it is today. You and all the staff of Anandtech are extremely respected and appreciated. Reply

    Looking forward to read what you write another 30 years so take a moment and contemplate and enjoy the fact that you have managed to become one of the most influental tech writers in the world and that you are only 30.

    Congratulations
