Samsung may be competing with Apple in the smartphone and tablet space, but that doesn't mean its executives can't still be Apple customers.

During an interview with MIT Technology Review, Samsung's chief strategy officer Young Sohn admitted that he is a longtime user of Apple products and continues to use them at home.

"I use a Mac, actually, at home," he said, while discussing the need for Samsung to build a better ecosystem to connect its products. "Iíve always used Mac, an iPhone, and an iPad. I also have the Galaxy. So Iím a great example."

Sohn continued: "If you look at the strengths of Apple, in a way itís not the product per se. Itís that consumers like their ecosystem such as iCloud. 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."

When asked to clarify if he is still using Apple products, Sohn said, "At work Iím using Samsung devices; Apple at home, mainly because all of my systems and files are done that way. Thatís sticky, you know? However, I did figure out how to sync all of my contacts and all of my schedules between the two different systems. You can do it. Itís a bit of work, but it is possible."

Sohn, who joined Samsung in August to bolster innovation at the company, also went so far as to call Apple a "very innovative" company.

That's pretty high praise for a competitor -- especially considering that Samsung is battling Apple in courtrooms around the world and has launched a string of anti-Apple ads.

a lot of top execs own rival devices. Eric Schmidt owns blackberry's, Woz owns a few android devices. It's really not a big deal but people use it to poke fun at fanboys.
