Anand Lal Shimpi makes the move from tech journalism to Apple

in apple on (#2RZK)
story imageAnand Lal Shimpi, founder of reknowned tech website Anandtech, has announced his retirement from Anandtech and tech journalism. His new challenge: an undisclosed role with Apple Corporation. This may seem like a small move in the business world, but Anand has the knowledge and credibility to take on an immense leadership role at Apple as time moves on. Successor to Tim Cook or Johnny Ive, who knows, but you can't help but think Apple has hired a gem.

As a longtime reader of Anandtech, I hope that Anand leaving doesn't spell the end of such a nice tech news site.

I've always considered Anandtech to be the best site for computer hardware and in-depth reviews. The difference between Anandtech and, for example, Tom's Hardware, is just uncompareable.

Agreed - the guy has the right touch of managerial, customer-oriented, trends-spotting, and so on. He has a tech degree and I wonder if he won't be going into some sort of visionary/guidance type post where he helps management prioritize and refine. Sounds like fun, anyway.

Meanwhile, though I wish Anandtech the best, i can't imagine they'll be able to keep it up.

Y'know, i just went back and had another look at the site and was again impressed by the quality of the articles. I went through the whole NAS section and was stunned by how useful and informative it was. (The comments, on the other hand, were ridiculous. I'd assumed better quality article would lead to more technical and thoughtful discussion. Instead it was pretty lame).

Man time flies. That guy started the site when he was, literally, a kid! Like 15.

And yet he ALWAYS outclassed Tom's.
