eating your own dog food
When a computer company uses its own software for internal projects, it is said to be "eating its own dog food." This phrase, made famous by microserfs, has been shortened to simply a verb, as in, "We've got to dog-food that product" (meaning we've got to start using our own product internally at our company).
