AnandTech Creator Steps Down *updated*

This was a bit of a surprise, but after almost 18 years of geeky goodness, Anand Lal Shimpi is stepping away from his AnandTech site and onto other things. The site has long been a mecca for those of us who want the down-low on PC hardware. The site will continue, but I still gave a little "*sniff* when I read the news...
If you've built a PC in the past 17.5 years, chances are you read some hardware reviews on AnandTech at some point. The site's creator, Anand Lal Shimpi, has announced that he is retiring from the tech writing business. He said, "AnandTech started as a site that primarily reviewed motherboards, then we added CPUs, video cards, cases, notebooks, Macs, smartphones, tablets and anything else that mattered. The site today is just as strong in coverage of new mobile devices as it is in our traditional PC component coverage

*update* Looks like Anand is taking his "street cred" over to Apple, in an as yet unknown capacity.
