Anand Lal Shimpi, the editor and publisher of the well-regarded AnandTech site, is going to work at Apple.

An Apple rep confirmed that the company was hiring Shimpi, but wouldn't provide any other details.

Last night, via a post on the site he founded in 1997, Shimpi said he was "officially retiring from the tech publishing world," but didn't say what he was doing next. "I won't stay idle forever. There are a bunch of challenges out there :)", he wrote.

This is great news for him, and after 17 years of some of the best technology journalism in the world, he certainly deserves a change of pace. Still, the rest of us lose a great voice, one of the best technology journalists of all time.

Inside Apple, nobody hears you scream.

I'm not sure any Apple mobile devices have been the "best" for a few years now - iOS was overtaken by Android with the release of Jelly Bean, various top-end mobiles (HTC, Samsung, LG even) are better than the equivalent iPhone and the iPad+iPad Mini have been beaten by various Nexus and Samsung tablets.


iOS overtaken by Android? I'm curious what makes you say that.
Android is more open and customisable I'll give you that, so if you don't like the way iOS works I can see why you would prefer Android.
But in which way would it otherwise be superior to iOS?

As for hardware there are certainly phones that are as good or better than the iPhone. But when it comes to tablets.. really?
