Apple Hires Tech Journalist Anand Lal Shimpi

John Paczkowski, reporting for Recode:

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. Great hire by Apple and a great opportunity for Anand; I've long admired his work.
