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!

Then & Now

    Happy Birthday Anand!

    Cheers to the man who created the best technical review site around. Its so nice to have a site that actually digs into the nitty gritty technical details and statistical comparisons and not just the emotional response they get from the colors/brand name on the box.

    Keep it up! And cheers to your selection of staff as well!

    You've been writing excellent reviews for so long, I figured you were older than 30 by now. I'm a very pleased reader and have been for many years! Have a great vacation. Reply
