Anand Lal Shimpi (born June 26, 1982) is a former tech journalist and American businessman who retired from the publishing industry to join Apple Inc. hardware division. He is mainly known as the founder of the technology website AnandTech.
Anand was born to Lalchand Shimpi, an Indian-born computer science professor at St Augustine's University, and Razieh Shimpi, an Iranian-born teacher in Raleigh, NC. When Shimpi was in third grade, his father enrolled him in a computer course. He built his first PC in sixth grade and soon began building PCs for others. He is a graduate of William G. Enloe GT/IB Center for the Humanities, Sciences, and the Arts and North Carolina State University with a degree in Computer Engineering with emphasis on microprocessor architecture and design.
He started AnandTech in 1997 at the age of 14. He called it Anand's Hardware Tech Page. He first started reviewing motherboards; later he would go on to review CPUs, hard drives, RAM, and other computer components. His tech reviews were in-depth and thorough, making it the preferred site for hardware engineers and enthusiasts. He served as its editor-in-chief from 1997 to 2014. AnandTech grew from a small GeoCities website in 1997 to a 50 million page view per month publication as of July 2005[update].
