Ashton Kutcher hired as product engineer by Lenovo
Besides announcing a new pair of Lenovo Yoga tablets (available with a 10 inch screen and an 8 inch glass), the Chinese manufacturer reached an agreement with a new product engineer. The man selected for the job is known for his work in another career, although he has been a savvy tech investor and has portrayed a couple of billionaire tech executives on television and on the silver screen. We're talking of course, about Ashton Kutcher.

On television, Kutcher plays a high-tech, internet billionaire named Waldon Schmidt on CBS-TV's Two and a Half Men. Possibly modeled after Mark Cuban, Schmidt created an internet company which he sold for billions. On film, Kutcher recently played former Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in the movie Jobs. Kutcher does have a more than a passing resemblance to the late Apple executive.

The Lenovo Yoga slates offer 18 hours of battery life with three modes: hold, tilt and stand. The tablet's cylindrical handle makes it easier to get a grip on the tablet to hold it. You can use the stand to prop up the tablet for viewing video. Or, you can put the tablet down on a table at an angle that is perfect for typing. Check out the video below to see these three modes in action.
