Ashton Kutcher is a fine actor. But did you know that he is currently also working in tandem with Lenovo. As a high tech firm par excellence, Lenovo loves to hire famous people for its projects. Ashton Kutcher is one of its product engineers right now. The man, who was the main star of the biopic “Jobs”, is a technology buff.
Kutcher took a course in biochemical engineering during his sophomore years. That valuable experience will serve him well in his stint with Lenovo. At present, he is busy marketing the Yoga tablet Series of Windows 8, Windows RT and Android convertible tablets. Ashton will be making some contributions of his own to the engineering experience at Lenovo.
Ashton Kutcher said, “This partnership with Lenovo brings together my love of technology and design that makes your life better. I can’t wait to dig in and help Lenovo develop future mobile computing products, starting with the Yoga Tablet. Lenovo is all about innovation and strong leadership. Entrepreneurship is part of their DNA, and I couldn’t ask for a better fit.”
A TV commercial is on its way starring Kutcher. He will be displaying his official Lenovo identity card in the television ad. Ashton Kutcher and many others like him have been taken on board by giant firms in the past. Alicia Keys and Lady Gaga come to mind.
Yet in the case of Kutcher, there is a lot more than meets the eye. His previous experience with Skype, Airbnb and Path are cherished assets indeed. Ashton is also the star attraction of the CBS comedy, Two and a Half Men which has become famous on a global level. Besides his acting chops, Ashton Kutcher’s creativity in mechanical matters will come in handy at Lenovo.
Lenovo's chief marketing officer, David Roman said, “Ashton Kutcher’s authentic, creative appetite for technology and keen consumer insight combined with our innovation engine make this a very natural and powerful partnership. This partnership goes beyond traditional bounds by deeply integrating him into our organization as a product engineer as we look at developing the next wave of products. As we continue to push into new PC Plus product areas and lead in multimode computing, Ashton will help us break new ground by challenging assumptions, bringing new perspective and contributing his technical expertise to Yoga Tablet and other devices.”

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
