(Newser) – Apparently, all you need to do in order to get a job as a Lenovo product engineer is really, really love technology. Well, that and be TV's highest-paid actor. The Chinese computer company has made Ashton Kutcher a product engineer on its line of Yoga tablets, according to the Hollywood Reporter. He'll collaborate with Lenovo's engineering teams, offering his two cents and making decisions on everything from the design to the software and specs; he even has his own Lenovo staff ID card, Mashable reports. (To be fair, Kutcher is already a big tech investor.)

"This partnership with Lenovo brings together my love of technology and design that makes your life better," Kutcher said at the launch. "I can't wait to dig in and help Lenovo develop future mobile computing products, starting with the Yoga Tablet."

It really is a sad day when the likes of him is used by a corporation for any term related to "engineering." I look forward to run over anything he creates. I'm sure I can find it rather cheap at flea markets, walmert $1 bins, Dollar Store clearances, or order it direct from China and pay more for shipping than the product. I mean i get in items from China all the time for my phones, pads, laptops that are like $1 for the item and $2 for postage.

A nice familiar face to aid China in pumping their spyware infused tech hardware directly into the veins of American consumers.
