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!

    Anand levels up and acquires an achievement!

    Love your site since I first logged on the internet some 13 years ago.

    Wow, its been a long time. I remember being amazed when the site announced your 18th birthday. I was amazed that this site that had been my homepage for over a year was started by someone so young. At the time I had no idea. Anyhow, 12 years later, through Netscape Navigator, Communicator, Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox and now Chrome... and many many PC's built, rebuilt, re-imaged and replaced, I always put Anandtech back as my start page. Here's to another dozen.

    I have enjoyed the articles since I found the site by it back in 2001.

    Well, I've been following Anandtech since 1997! And it's been such a great ride ever since. Anandtech has now become my daily dose of tech news. Here to Anand for all the great works he had done, is doing and will do for us in the coming years. Keep up the great work everyone. Thank you!
