Yahoo! The Street.com heeft een interview met Anand van ... AnandTech met wat gelul over de leeftijd van Anand (hij is pas 16) en zijn review van de K6-3 (waarmee hij de eerste was):
When evening comes, Shimpi turns into Anandtech.com, a burgeoning online enterprise. The first time we attempted to talk to him, he had to call us back because of an unfolding crisis over his new $40,000 server, a piece of equipment he paid for with ad revenues. To ease up, he recently hired three employees -- two editors, who receive a small salary, and a database expert, who works for the gadgets computer companies send Shimpi to review.
[...] But his site has evolved quickly from something that less than two years ago started out as a self-designed Web page on GeoCities ( (Nasdaq:GCTY - news) ).
"It was mostly my thoughts, online," Shimpi says. "I got 36 visitors on the first day." Nothing near the audience he garnered when he released his notes on AMD's new chip: In the first 12 hours, the site received more than 300,000 hits. "It took my server down," he says. Over the next three weeks, his readership rose from an average of 150,000 to 260,000 page views a day.
"I really have no way of assessing him," says Nathan Brookwood, an analyst with Insight 64. "But the benchmark results for the Sharptooth were about what I had expected, so he must be a pretty sharp kid."
