'Strictly Dumpling' YouTuber Mike Chen's best and 'most expensive' food day ever

Food vlogger Mike Chen has had a lot of memorable meals — from an all-you-can-eat lobster buffet in Las Vegas to a massive, 5.5-pound gyoza dumpling in Tokyo. As the host of “Strictly Dumpling, ” the food reviews YouTube channel that has nearly 2.6 million subscribers, Chen, 38, regularly attracts millions of viewers per post with videos showing him trying foods around the world, from “legendary” ramen in Japan to McDonald’s in India or Vietnamese street food. Chen, who started making YouTube food videos six years ago, actually runs six different YouTube channels, with more than 5 million followers overall, including “Beyond Science, ” where he explores “food, news, Chinese culture and mysterious phenomenons.” Born in China but raised in the U.S., Chen is a former Morgan Stanley financial analyst who left that job after a year, in 2006. He now works for the non-profit media company NTD Television, where he serves as the head of digital strategy, according to his LinkedIn page. Chen tells CNBC Make It that he started making YouTube food videos in 2013, “because food is the love of my life.” “I’ve always felt that the best way to explore a new culture is taking a bite out of it,” Chen says. “Everywhere in the world food is both historical and modern and encompasses the people, the land and the essence of its cultural identity.”

Recently, Chen sat down with CNBC Make It to talk about his favorite hacks for finding great food while traveling, and the best and “most expensive food day” of his life in 2017, when he spent nearly $1,000. CNBC Make It: What’s the best meal you’ve ever had? Mike Chen: It’s the best meal I’ve ever had, it’s just purely because it was the first meal I’ve ever had of that particular dish. And it was so mind-blowingly good. I will never forget the day I had an A5-grade Wagyu steak in Kobe, Japan. I mean, I had that thing for lunch, and it changed my life. It changed my everything. I mean, my soul is like different now, because the Wagyu did stuff to it that is just miraculous. And then after lunch I said, “You know what? For dinner, I also want Wagyu.”

Apple's design chief, Jony Ive, was often absent over the last few years, new report says

Apple employees have felt Chief Design Officer Jony Ive’s absence long before he announced his upcoming departure from the company last week, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal.

Ive, who had helped design some of Apple’s most memorable products, from the iPod to the Apple Watch, had been checked out of daily operations for a long time, according to the Journal. Ive grew disappointed by the more operational focus of top leadership under CEO Tim Cook, people who worked on Apple’s design team told the Journal.

The Journal story paints a picture that Ive was largely checked out from his duties at Apple, skipping design meetings and spending time at his homes in San Francisco, Hawaii and the U.K.

Ive had a close relationship with Cook’s predecessor, Steve Jobs, with whom he often ate and discussed ideas, the Journal reported. Cook, who comes from an engineering background, aimed to keep Ive content with a lofty title and large salary, the Journal reported, but Ive continued to keep his distance from the office.

After the release of the Apple Watch in 2015, Ive told Cook he wanted to lessen his daily management responsibilities, according to the report, telling several people he wanted time to think but did not want to leave. When Cook announced his new title of chief design officer in 2015, the role came with more remote work, which the design team found disappointing, according to the Journal.

Ive agreed to pick up his day-to-day responsibilities again in 2017 after a meeting with Cook, the Journal reported, but he eventually became absent from the office again, spending time in the U.K. with his sick father. As Ive has remained distant, four longtime members of his team left in the past year, according to the report.

Ive announced his departure in an interview with the Financial Times published Thursday, saying he will start a new design business called LoveFrom. Apple said it will be a client of the new venture. Apple Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams, who like Cook is known for his operational expertise, is now in charge of Ive’s design team.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Tim Cook calls report about Jony Ive's departure from Apple 'absurd'

Apple CEO Tim Cook (L) and Apple chief design officer Jony Ive (R) look at the new Mac Pro during the 2019 Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) at the San Jose Convention Center on June 03, 2019 in San Jose, California.

Apple chief executive Tim Cook on Monday fiercely disputed a report about the departure of design chief Jony Ive and the company’s ability to uphold its commitment to innovative design, NBC reports.

In a rare, scathing statement sent exclusively to NBC News, Cook took issue with a report published Sunday night by The Wall Street Journal that said Ive had grown frustrated with Cook’s leadership and alleged lack of interest in the design production process. Cook said the report does not match reality and fails to understand how Apple’s design team actually works.

“The story is absurd,” Cook said in an email. “A lot of the reporting, and certainly the conclusions, just don’t match with reality.”

Cook does not often publicly rebut news reports but he appeared compelled to do so given his frustrations with the article, which said that the company is prioritizing operations at the expense of design.

“At a base level, it shows a lack of understanding about how the design team works and how Apple works,” Cook said. “It distorts relationships, decisions and events to the point that we just don’t recognize the company it claims to describe.”

The Wall Street Journal declined to comment.

The rebuttal from Cook, who took over the top job at Apple after the death of Steve Jobs, comes as the company is trying to demonstrate that Ive’s departure is not a sign of greater troubles.

Ive, who was responsible for the look of many of Apple’s most iconic products, including the iPod, the iPhone, the iPad and the Apple Watch, announced Thursday that he would leave the company to start his own design firm, though he will continue to work with Apple as a contractor.

“While I will not be an [Apple] employee, I will still be very involved — I hope for many, many years to come,” Ive told the Financial Times. “This just seems like a natural and gentle time to make this change.”

But on Sunday night, The Wall Street Journal’s Tripp Mickle reported that Ive “had been growing more distant from Apple’s leadership” in part because he was frustrated with Cook’s “more operations-focused company,” according to several sources familiar with his departure who were not named.

“People in the design studio rarely saw Mr. Cook, who they say showed little interest in the product development process — a fact that dispirited Mr. Ive,” Mickle reported.

“Mr. Ive grew frustrated as Apple’s board became increasingly populated by directors with backgrounds in finance and operations rather than technology or other areas of the company’s core business,” the report stated.

While Apple has in the past decade become one of the world’s most valuable companies, it now faces scrutiny over its ability to continue creating new products that change the way consumers interact with the world. It remains massively profitable, with $30 billion in earnings over the last six months, but analysts have expressed concern over the fact that it hasn’t had a major product hit since the iPad, in 2010. (Sales for the Apple Watch and AirPods, while popular, remain relatively small by comparison.)

While growth in hardware sales slows, Apple has spent years investing more heavily in software and services. Nevertheless, Ive’s departure caused some alarm among analysts who closely watch Apple. Ive and Jobs worked hand in glove to create many of Apple’s best products, and he was long seen as one of the most influential figures at the company. Mickle describes him as “Jobs’s protégé—and Apple’s closest thing to a living embodiment of his spirit.”

Responsibility for Apple’s future design will now fall to Jeff Williams, the chief operating officer; Evans Hankey, who oversees industrial design; and Alan Dye, who oversees user interface design.

“The design team is phenomenally talented,” Cook told NBC News. “As Jony has said, they’re stronger than ever, and I have complete confidence that they will thrive under Jeff, Evans and Alan’s leadership. We know the truth, and we know the incredible things they’re capable of doing. The projects they’re working on will blow you away.”

Jony Ive's departure marks the end of the hardware era at Apple

Over Jony Ive’s 27-year career at Apple, the industrial designer picked up a lot of additional responsibilities. When Ive leaves Apple later this year as its outgoing Chief Design Officer, he leaves a job where he was responsible for all design across Apple, including its hardware, user interfaces, packaging, architectural projects and “new ideas,” according to his Apple biography. But even as Ive became more critical to Apple, he always had a hand in the physical world, because that’s his background: industrial design. Ive’s departure from Apple will not immediately impact its products. Apple still has talented designers, and it will continue to release iPhones. The planning process for a complicated device like those Apple makes takes about three years. It’ll be awhile before we start to see the first products from Apple that won’t have any input from Ive. But Ive’s announcement on Thursday does underscore a shift in the importance of the industrial design group at Apple. At Apple, Ive’s small industrial design group had immense power, with offices on the top floor of Apple Park, and Ive reported directly to Apple CEO Tim Cook. When Evans Hankey, vice president of Industrial Design at Apple and a longtime employee, takes over the design group, she will report to COO Jeff Williams, an executive best known for his operational skills, not his vision for product and design. The subtle demotion of the industrial design group shows that Apple is increasingly emphasizing its online services, the power of its components and how its products seamlessly work together, as opposed to their design. After all, the overall look and feel of an iPhone has only changed incrementally each year, and new models of Apple’s MacBook laptop sport the same general aluminum case as they have for the past few revisions. The goal of the design of most modern electronics is to disappear completely, driving focus to the screen. Ive and his team used to be tasked with designing revolutionary new products. Today, a lot of their output has become incremental updates to products that already exits. Other consumer electronics companies regularly outsource industrial design work to a handful of firms. But for the past two decades, Apple did its industrial design in-house, under the watchful eye of Ive. Thursday’s announcement also means that Apple will soon outsource parts of its design because Ive is starting a new creative firm, with Apple as its client.

When I saw Ive speak at an event in New York in 2017, I was struck by how little he seemed to care for day-to-day business concerns, and how much he cared about objects and how they were made. “When you walk around the manufactured world, so much of it testifies to carelessness in human activity, in engineering, in aesthetics,” he said. That’s what Ive did — sweat the little details, especially in Apple’s physical objects and how they’re manufactured, but not necessarily the strict numbers on a given iPhone’s bill of materials. “I have a problem with numbers, and I don’t really have much interest been in — in business,” Ive said. Before Ive, gadgets weren’t typically made out of aluminum shells carved out of single blocks. Laptops had tiny trackpads. Less attention was given to new case materials like stainless steel or gold alloys, which were used in the iPhone X and Apple Watch. It’s difficult to determine how much Ive’s physical designs contributed to Apple’s 20-year streak of growth, versus Apple’s software or marketing, but the look of the products was a big part of Apple’s brand. Apple products looked different than other products in stores. For example, iPods regularly came in vibrant colors and odd shapes and with new, sometimes experimental interfaces — the iPod Shuffle didn’t even have a screen. Industrial design was Ive’s first team he was in charge of at Apple, and it was rooted in the physical, which is why Ive’s lab is loaded with cutting-edge manufacturing equipment. People make things there. He explained his eureka moment in 2017 and how it involved creating an actual model. “I think you only really understand a material — its properties and attributes and, importantly, the opportunity the material allows — if you actually work it yourself,” Ive told Smithsonian. “And the most remarkable point in the whole process is when you make the first model. We might like it, we might not, but the first model you make, everything changes.”

Analysts say Ive was one of Apple's most important people, but they're not worried about the stock

The announcement of the impending departure of longtime Apple longtime design leader Sir Jonathan “Jony” Ive came as little surprise to Wall Street analysts but it did drag on the company’s stock nonetheless.

Shares of Apple slipped 1% in early trading Friday from Thursday’s close of $199.74.

Apple said he is leaving later this year to start an independent design company that “will count Apple among its primary clients.”

Analysts rued the announcement, as Ive had been with Apple for nearly 30 years. As Apple’s chief design officer, Ive styled the vast majority of Apple products over the past two decades, including the iPhone.

“In our judgment, we view Jony Ive as one of the most important people at AAPL and perhaps second only to CEO Tim Cook presently in terms of impact to AAPL’s success,” Deutsche Bank said in a note to investors.

Nomura Instinet analysts called his leaving “a sentimental negative,” as “he represents a particularly strong connection to Apple iconic heritage.”

“His departure, therefore, should prompt much nostalgia, and may lead some investors to question Apple’s ability to retain leading industrial design,” Nomura said.

However, the analysts did not see this as a significant enough loss to the company to adjust their ratings or price targets. Nomura said the firm believes “this a sensible and even expected time for Mr. Ive to disengage,” while Evercore ISI said there will be little impact beyond the slight negative from the announcement.

“While Mr. Ive’s departure is a headline negative for the stock, given AAPL’s deep design bench and future relationship with Mr. Ive’s new company, we think any impact should be fairly limited,” Evercore ISI said.

Here’s what every major analyst had to say about Ive’s departure.

Here are some of the most iconic Apple products designed by Jony Ive

Apple Chief Design Officer Jony Ive announced on Thursday that he’s leaving the company to start his own company named LoveForm, which will include Apple as a client. Ive, who was close with Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, is the best-known designer of tech products. He’s responsible for most of the Apple products you’ve probably used during his time at the company, which coincided with Apple’s return from near-death to one of the most valuable companies in the world. His designs are so popular, some are on display in museums. Ive had a hand in many product designs, but here are a few of the most iconic.

iMac G3

If you were alive in the 1990s, you remember the iMac G3. It’s still Apple’s most colorful computer ever. It had an iconic “Bondi Blue” shell, though thirteen colors were sold in total. The entire computer was packaged behind the screen, similar to some earlier designs but far more fun than the boring creme colored desktop computers Apple’s competitors were selling.

Power Mac G4 Cube

Apple introduced the Power Mac G4 Cube July 19, 2000, an entirely new class of computer that delivers the performance of a Power Mac G4 in an eight inch cube suspended in a stunning crystal-clear enclosure. Getty Images | Hulton Archive | Getty Images

While perhaps not considered as successful as the iMac G3, the Power Mac G4 Cube is still one of Apple’s most famous designs. It was smaller than other computer towers and the insides pulled out of the cube with a handle, which was easier than unscrewing the side of traditional computers. It also looked a heck of a lot cooler than most other computers.

iPod

The iPod was first launched in 2001 and quickly became the must-have MP3 player. Unlike CD players, it allowed people to carry thousands of songs wherever they went. Like other iconic Jony Ive designs, part of its attraction was how easily people could scroll through long lists of songs using the wheel design.

iPhone

In 2007, Apple turned the smartphone market — dominated by Microsoft, Palm, BlackBerry, Motorola and others — on its head with the release of the first iPhone. Its focus on ease-of-use, a premium design and a multi-touch display helped Apple quickly establish itself as a major player.

iPad

Microsoft and other companies had tried to sell tablets, but nobody was able to make them popular until Apple launched the iPad. Like the iPhone, Apple focused on ease-of-use, offering a large screen to browse the web, watch videos and flip through pictures, all things we take for granted today but that, in 2010, felt like magic on the first iPad.

MacBook Air

Apple had another win with the original MacBook Air. It was so thin that Steve Jobs introduced it by pulling it out of a manila envelope on stage, something no other mainstream laptop at the time could have fit into. Some design aspects, like the keyboard, were so good that most people wish Apple would ditch its current butterfly design for it on its modern laptops.

Apple Watch

Today, you’d be hard pressed to walk down the block of a modern city and not see an Apple Watch on someone’s wrist. But before it was introduced, skeptics didn’t think Apple could pull people away from traditional timepieces. That changed once Apple introduced the Apple Watch, though, with its touch-screen display, convenient twist “Digital Crown” controls. And, importantly, it still looks like a relatively normal watch.

AirPods

Here’s another win for Jony Ive. Bluetooth headphones were gaining in popularity a couple of years ago, but Apple entered the market and took control of it with the AirPods. Initially considered a bit silly looking, today they’re pretty much standard wear on fashionable people. Again, Ive’s focus on simplicity helped make them popular: just pop them in and you’re listening to music. Even the charging case — itself a brilliant design choice — has an addictive click mechanism.

Ive is considered one of the most important people at Apple, responsible for the industrial design and the look and feel of all major Apple products, including the iPhone and the Mac. He had worked at Apple for more than 20 years.

He is going to start his own design business, called LoveFrom, along with longtime friend and fellow designer Marc Newson, according to a Financial Times report. Apple will be a client, Apple said.

“While I will not be an employee, I will still be very involved — I hope for many, many years to come. This just seems like a natural and gentle time to make this change,” Ive told the Financial Times.

“Jony is a singular figure in the design world and his role in Apple’s revival cannot be overstated, from 1998’s groundbreaking iMac to the iPhone and the unprecedented ambition of Apple Park, where recently he has been putting so much of his energy and care,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook in a statement.

Ive will not have an immediate successor. Instead, Evans Hankey, vice president of Industrial Design, and Alan Dye, vice president of Human Interface Design, will assume additional design responsibilities, Apple said. The two designers will report to Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer. Ive reported directly to Cook.

In recent years, Ive has dedicated a large portion of his time to the construction of Apple Park, the company’s $5 billion campus in Cupertino, California.

Last month, Apple officially opened its new headquarters with a concert on campus.

“There were some significant projects that I feel like I’ve completed. For example Apple Park — this was a project that started in 2004 . . . A couple of weeks ago we had our official opening of the Park. That was a really significant project, that was unlike many of our others, because it was for us,” Ive told the Financial Times.

This is the most impressive resume I've ever seen—based on my 20 years of hiring and interviewing

I’ve received thousands of resumes throughout my entire career — and believe me, I’ve seen them all: Too long, too short, too boring, too many typos, too hard to read and every layout imaginable. To be completely honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of resumes. Heck, I even wrote a book about all the things that are more important than the resume. Of course, you need one, but what most experts don’t tell you is that resumes only account for 10% of the hiring decision. That said, it would take a lot to wow a tough critic like myself. A few years ago, however, I was surprised to find a resume that actually managed to impress me. In fact, it was one of the best resumes I had ever seen. It had no gimmicks, no Fortune 500 company listed and wasn’t folded into an origami airplane. Needless to say, I hired the candidate. Here’s what made it stand out from the rest:

1. It was easy to read

This resume had plenty of white space and was two pages long, which is expected if you have more than 10 years of experience. Everything was nicely organized: Line spacing was just right, company names in bold, titles italicized and job details arranged in bullet points. Oh, and not a single typo to be found. I liked that the font was nothing fancy. Too many candidates waste time obsessing over which font to use. I won’t weigh in on Times New Roman versus Calibri, but I will say that it should always be simple and easy to read.

2. It told a story

This resume told a story about the candidate’s career journey. There were no information gaps (i.e., a missing summer). From top to bottom, there was a clear “before and after.” In just a few seconds, I was able to see a “staircase pattern” of the candidate’s career. In other words, the chronological list of work history — in order of date, with the most recent position at the top — showed a clear progression of more senior roles and more advanced responsibilities.

3. It listed accomplishments, rather than just responsibilities

I’m not interested in reading what you copied and pasted from the original job description listing. What employers really want to know is whether you’re an above average candidate who’s capable of delivering quantifiable results. It’s always better to highlight your responsibilities by detailing your most impressive accomplishments: Examples: Instead of “expanded operations to international markets,” say “expanded operations to eight new countries in Latin America. ”

Instead of “led marketing and sales team,” say “supervised sales team and achieved 15% annual growth vs. 0.5% budget. ”

4. It told the truth

There weren’t any discrepancies that raised red flags. Everything was believable and numbers weren’t exaggerated. Even better, the candidate included links to their LinkedIn page and professional website, which included a portfolio of their work. This made it easier for me to fact-check the resume, which in turn made the candidate seem like an honest person. My advice? Tell the truth — period. A colleague once told me about someone who listed “convicted felon” on her resume. The candidate submitted her resume, then called the hiring manager and asked, “Would you hire an ex-convict?” After a series of questions and some due diligence, they offered her the job. And based on what I’ve heard, she ended up being an excellent hire. While big accomplishments and recognizable company names will give you an advantage, make no mistake: Employers will do a reference check — and if they found out that you lied about something, it’s game over.

5. It didn’t have any cliché claims

There were no generic and high-level claims such as “creative,” “hard-working,” “results-driven,” “excellent communicator” or, my least favorite, “team player.” Including any of these cliché terms will make your hiring manager roll their eyes in less than a second. Go for action verbs and skip the cheesy adjectives and overused terms. Examples: Instead of “excellent communicator,” say “presented at face-to-face client meetings and spoke at college recruiting events. ”

Instead of “highly creative,” say “designed and implemented new global application monitoring platform.”

6. It came through a recommendation
