Washington: Korean mobile maker Samsung’s chief strategy officer Young Sohn has said that he is a big fan of Apple products and continues to use them at home.
“I use a Mac, actually, at home,” he said during an interview with MIT Technology Review.
“I’ve always used Mac, an iPhone, and an iPad. I also have the Galaxy. So I’m a great example. If you look at the strengths of Apple, in a way it’s not the product per se. It’s that consumers like their ecosystem such as iCloud,” he said.
“I like that my family 6,000 miles away in Korea is able to see my schedule and see all of my contacts and photos. It is sticky, but it is a proprietary architecture,” he added.
According to Mashable, his remarks came while discussing the need for Samsung to build a better ecosystem to connect its products.
Sohn, who joined Samsung in August to bolster innovation at the company, also went so far as to call Apple a ‘very innovative’ company, the report said.
