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

    I've been reading Anandtech since something like 1999, and it's been on my list of sites-to-check-every-day for years. It's my number one most trusted source for hardware news and info, and that's due largely to the integrity and skill of Anand, who has built such an amazing team around him. Here's to another 15 years! Reply

    Yes, I remember now. Everyone was amazed at how a 14 year old has got his hand on the latest AMD CPU before release and reviewed it. It is good that he has kept the same enthusiasm, to the benefit of those who visit this site.

    Happy Birthday Mr. Anand La Shimpi.
