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!

    Agreed, best articles anywhere. Reply

    In an industry where a "review" is typically a guy repeating the product's feature list, Anandtech spits out reviews that should actually be called "reviews." Reply

    Hear! hear!

    I'm also quite sure that AT is the best tech site on the web.

    Double agreed! To paraphrase James Carville, 'It's the context, stupid.'

    Anandtech articles are great because they're both as deep as anything you can get elsewhere as well as broader.

    Thanks for making the Internet a better place, Anand. (And everyone else who works at AT)

    PS: Happy birthday!
