Houston: Ashton Kutcher, the actor who recently played Apple's iconic founder in the movie "Jobs", has taken a position with computer maker Lenovo as a product engineer.



The 35-year-old 'Two and A Half Men' star will help design and pitch its latest line of Yoga Android tablets. Kutcher is a common player in the tech sphere and has invested in startup companies such as Airbnb, Path and Uber.



Calling it "not another 'Me Too' tablet," Kutcher said that the Yoga meets consumer's needs by understanding how consumers want to use the device.



He also took a few slight jabs at Apple and its iPad by praising Lenovo for choosing Android's operating system rather than its own proprietary platform.



"Lenovo isn't sitting here going 'the software that we create is the software that needs to be the software that everybody uses because that is the software that is going to be the best software' because that is not how great software gets created," said Kutcher, almost certainly talking about Apple's popular iOS mobile OS.
