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.

You contradict yourself. Customisability comes at a price and iOS did not pay it where Android did.

No I didn't contradict myself. Perhaps I failed to communicate properly.

Both models have their strengths and weaknesses. Either way you need to make compromises.
