Veeam Certified tricks - BingNews Search results Veeam Certified tricks - BingNews Veeam Anoints New Channel Chief, Says Search For New Sales Lead To End Soon

Veeam, the Baar, Switzerland-based developer of leading data protection technology for virtualized environments and a longtime VMware partner, is elevating one of its executives to the role of channel chief as a way to better focus on channel partners.

Veeam this week said Chris Moore, senior director of North American channels for Veeam, is taking over channel responsibilities as the company continues to develop its channels.

Moore told CRN that, while he has been working with channel partners since joining Veeam from Hewlett-Packard in July of 2011, the role of channel chief has been held by the company's vice president of North American sales. That sales role has been vacant since the December departure of Bill Botti, although a Veeam spokesperson said the company expects to fill that position soon.

[Related: VMware Limits Some Storage Vendors' Presence At VMware PEX]

"Last year, we started thinking that we're so channel-centric, why not make the channel chief position official," he said. "We decided to let the vice president of sales focus on sales, and let the channel chief focus on the channel."

Dave Butler, president of Enterprise Computing Solutions, a Mission Viejo, Calif.-based solution provider and Veeam partner, said he has known Moore since his days at HP to be a "straight-up" guy.

"If my memory is correct, when we worked with Chris, he followed through on his commitments," Butler said.

The move to anoint an official channel chief appears to signal an even greater channel emphasis on the part of Veeam, Butler said.

"This is the right sort of thing a company can do to work closer with the channel," he said. "The channel is already selling the rest of the pieces of the storage business. It makes sense for Veeam to be focused on the channel."

Veeam already has a reputation for protecting its solution providers' business, and has one of the industry's best lead generation programs, Butler said.

"And the product pretty much sells itself," he said. "It's a bolt-on product to VMware. No matter what other backup solutions customers use with VMware, Veeam fits in."

Moore said Veeam in March is planning to unveil expansions to its channel program, including increased investments in field resources and marketing around partners who really understand the vendor.

Those investments will includes improved lead distribution capabilities along with new programs to help new partners close their first Veeam deals, he said.

These enhancements will be a follow-on to January's launch of the Veeam Certified Engineer (VMCE) program which Moore said provides partners with training, certification, tools, and reference architectures to help them build out their services capabilities.

Veeam was one of a couple of storage vendors who were asked by VMware to not be a sponsor of this month's VMware Partner Exchange conference.

22 Google Maps Tricks You Need to Try

Google Maps has changed how we navigate the world. Its desktop and mobile apps have become more than just a way to get from point A to B via car, public transportation, or on foot: The ubiquitous Google service is also a geospatial search engine for the world around us.

Google continues to revamp and improve its map product, but there are a ton of customizable tools and hidden functions already baked into Google Maps that you may not know about, such as Incognito Mode. Check out our tips for how to maximize your Google Maps power.

1. We're Doing It Live

Search with Live View (Credit: Google)

You can get an AR view of the street you're on, if that street is in Amsterdam, Dublin, Florence, London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, San Francisco, Tokyo, or Venice. Open Maps, click the camera icon at the top, and hold your phone up to scan your location. You'll get an overlay of all the places you'd see on Maps, so you can easily find restaurants, shops, and more.

Meanwhile, Immersive View for routes, which rolled out in October, gives you a bird's-eye view of your route complete with 3D imagery along the way, whether you're walking, cycling, or driving. Look for it in select cities, including Amsterdam, London, New York, and Tokyo.

2. Inside Access

Google Maps isn't just for the great outdoors. You can navigate through malls, airports, and other big buildings by finding the location in Maps, clicking on it, then scrolling to Directory. You'll never get lost looking for a Cinnabon again. This feature is available in over 10,000 locations worldwide.

Some places even support Live View inside, where animated arrows will guide you around airports, train stations, and malls. It launched in 2021 in the US, Zurich, and Tokyo, and in early 2023, it announced plans to expand to more than 1,000 new locations in Barcelona, Berlin, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Melbourne, Paris, Prague, São Paulo, Singapore, Sydney, and Taipei. Just lift your phone up in a supported region to jump into Live View.

3. Plot Multiple Locations on Google Maps

Rarely do car trips consist of going from point A to B; more often, they are something like A-to-café-to-library-to-Joe's-house-to-B. Thankfully, Google makes it possible to anticipate real trips. To add multiple destinations in the Google Maps mobile app, enter your starting point and your ultimate destination, and then click the three-dot menu in the top-right corner. This prompts a pop-over menu with the option to "Add stop." Click that, and you can create a route with multiple stops. You can even drag and drop stops within your itinerary. (Note that this doesn't work when you're using the mass-transit option.)

4. Customize Your Vehicle Icon

When you're driving, Google lets you choose what kind of car shows up on your navigation in the iOS and Android apps. In the app, plug in your destination and start up driving directions. Tap the icon that shows your current location, and a pop-up menu appears with several car-icon options: a sedan, a pickup truck, or an SUV.

5. 'Hey Google, Where Am I Going?'

You might want to interact with Maps while you're driving, but you don't want to take your eyes off the road. With "OK Google" voice commands in the Google Maps Android app, you don't have to. For example, if you notice you're running low on gas, say "OK Google, find gas stations," and it will show gas stations on the map (which you can look at when you've come to a red light or pulled over). You can also ask questions like "What's my next turn?", "What's my ETA?", and "How's traffic ahead?" On Android, set up Google Assistant, and you're good to go. (You'll need a phone running Android Version 9.0 or higher with 4GB RAM or more.) On iOS (pictured above), tap the microphone icon at the top-right, then ask your questions via voice.

6. Access Google Maps Offline

Today, Maps is most useful on mobile, which brings up a problem: When you're in need of Maps, you may find yourself somewhere with limited (or—gasp—nonexistent) coverage. To help, Google Maps supports offline access. Type in an address or area, swipe up on the menu at the bottom of the screen, tap the ellipsis icon on the top right, and select Download offline map. If you have enough storage on your device, the map in question will be saved. To access it later, tap your avatar > Offline maps, and you can then get information about businesses in the region and turn-by-turn directions within the downloaded section.

7. Get Your Groceries

Google has incorporated grocery ordering and pickup functionality into Maps for select brands. Things kicked off a few years ago amid the boom in curbside pickup during the pandemic. That's still an option; in early 2023, Google touted the improvements it's made to the ETA function inside Google Maps for Kroger pickups. But grocery stores can also add a Place an order option to their Maps business profiles. In addition to Kroger stores (which also includes Fry's, Ralphs, and Marianos), it's also available for Albertson's and Fred Meyer locations.

8. Let Other People Drive

Ride-sharing services are a big part of the modern transportation mix, so Google added ride options from companies such as Lyft (sorry, no more Uber) to its mobile app. Once you enter your destination, tap the little figure attempting to hail a taxi or the mass-transit option. You'll then be presented with nearby rideshare options, along with the estimated time of arrival and fare. Tap Open App to book your ride.

9. Find Accessible Transit Routes and Locations

Those with mobility issues can search for wheelchair-accessible transit routes by tapping Options > Wheelchair Accessible when looking for train or bus directions. When you get to your destination, meanwhile, the Accessible Places setting offers up wheelchair-accessibility information about that location.

Turn it on via Settings > Accessibility > Accessible Places. "When Accessible Places is switched on, a wheelchair icon will indicate an accessible entrance, and you’ll be able to see if a place has accessible seating, restrooms, or parking," Google says. "If it’s confirmed that a place does not have an accessible entrance, we’ll show that information on Maps as well."

10. Change The Font Size

If the words on Google Maps are too small to read, make them bigger.

On an iPhone, make sure you have iOS 15 or higher via Settings > General > About. Then go to Settings > Control Center. Under More Controls, you'll see Text Size. Tap the green plus icon on the left, which moves it to the top under Included Controls. Now, open Google Maps and swipe down from the upper right where you see the battery icon. Tap on the Text Size button (an icon of a small A next to a large A). On the bottom, select whether you want to increase the font size on just Google Maps or across all apps. You can then increase the font size with the white bars. Close out of Control Center and your font adjustments should update automatically.

On an Android, you can change the size of the font or display but this is going to be a universal change across all of the device's apps. Open Settings, then select Accessibility. You can make words larger by tapping Font Size and then setting your preferred letter size or change the display size by tapping Display Size and then setting your preferred icon size.

11. Remember Where You Parked

Remember when the Seinfeld gang spent the whole half hour wandering around a parking garage looking for their parked car? That episode (along with many others) would not work in 2024, thanks to Google Maps.

At your destination, tap the blue location dot, and select Save parking, which adds a label to the Maps app identifying where you parked. On Android, tap that to add details such as the parking garage level and spot or the amount of time left before a meter expires. You can also set meter reminders, add a photo of where you parked, and send your parking location to friends.

To find it later, tap the search bar at the top, and select Parking location (Android) or Saved parking (iOS). Or tap the Driving arrow below, and look for Saved parking on iOS. Google will automatically delete the parking reminder after 8 hours, though you can manually get rid of it by tapping You parked here on the map and selecting Clear (iOS) or More info > Clear (Android).

12. What's the Parking Sitch?

Google Maps can provide turn-by-turn directions based on live-ish traffic data, but it can also provide you with a glimpse of the parking situation. When you search for driving directions to a location on iOS or Android, you might see a P logo at the bottom of the screen along with one of three designations: limited, medium, and easy (plus On-site for retailers with large parking lots). This can help you decide how much time you'll need to allocate for parking or even whether another form of transportation would be a better option.

13. Share Your Location

Google Maps lets you share your current location with people for specified periods of time. When you share your location with a certain contact, they'll see your icon moving in real time on their map. On mobile, tap your profile icon on the top right, and select Location sharing. Then choose with whom you want to share and for how long. (You may need to first allow notifications from Google Maps in your phone's settings menu.)

14. View (and Delete) Your Google Maps History

screenshot of the settings in the ios mobile app for deleting google maps history

(Credit: Google/PCMag)

Google maintains a very detailed record of your digital activities. If you'd rather it lose your Maps data, you can erase it on desktop or mobile. On a desktop, go to Click the hamburger menu, and select Your data in Maps. You'll end up on a page titled Google-wide Controls, where you can go to Location History > See & delete activity. You'll see a map with a timeline of your activity. On the bottom-right of the map, click the trashcan icon to delete all your location history permanently.

As of December 2023, the first time you turn on location history, Google will default you to auto-delete your history every three months. To adjust that, navigate to Click Location History > Choose an auto-delete option, and choose how often Google will delete your data (every 3, 18, or 36 months) or turn auto-delete off completely.

Recommended by Our Editors

On mobile, go to Settings > Maps History, which will bring you to a Maps Activity page. Look for the Delete drop-down menu, where you can opt to delete your history from today, all time, or a custom range. Tap Auto-delete to select a timeframe for when Google will automatically delete Maps data

15. Go Incognito

For a quick way to poke around Google Maps without leaving any obvious footprints, go Incognito. Google Maps won't save your browser or search history in your account or send notifications. Your searches and movements won't be added to location history or shared location. And Google won't use your activity while you're in Incognito Mode to personalize Maps. This mode has advantages when you want to peep a location without having it tangled up with your search history, but just as on web browsers, it doesn't make you invisible. To turn the mode on, tap your avatar and select Turn on Incognito mode; the Incognito icon appears in the search bar. Tap it and select Turn off Incognito mode to switch it off.

16. Time Travel With Google Maps

(Credit: PCMag/Google)

Street View has amassed a huge collection of street imagery over the years. In 2014, Google introduced Time Travel, a way for users to see how Street View has changed over time. And in 2022, it expanded from the desktop to mobile. To look back at a particular address, enter Street View and tap anywhere on the screen. At the bottom, tap See more dates. Where available, this should produce a series of photos. Scroll through and select the date you want to see.

17. Add Some Music

screenshot of music settings in google maps

If you've always got Google Maps navigation open while you're driving (or walking), you can add music to your trip without leaving the app. Sync music apps such as Spotify or Apple Music by opening the menu and navigating to Settings. On iOS, tap Navigation > Music playback controls to connect Apple Music or Spotify. On Android, tap Navigation settings > Assistant default media provider, where you can link a number of music-streaming services, including YouTube Music, Spotify, Apple Music, iHeartRadio, Pandora, and Deezer. Once you do, a pop-up to your app of choice should appear as you're driving for a quick tap to get your music started. Be sure to create your playlists beforehand so you can keep your eyes on the road!

18. Find Electric-Vehicle Charging Stations

(Credit: PCMag/Google)

More and more electric vehicles (EVs) are taking to the road, and Google Maps is adapting. You can search "EV charging" or "EV charging station" in Google Maps, and it suggests the best station for you based on traffic conditions, your charge level, and the expected energy consumption. You can filter by types of plugs, and if you're in a rush, you can select Fast Charge to find the charging stations with the most voltage. If you use Android Auto in an EV, meanwhile, it will no longer show gas stations.

19. Request Fuel-Efficient Routes

Want to make sure that next road trip is fuel-efficient? Turn on this setting in Google Maps and the app will prioritize fuel- or energy-efficiency over other factors like real-time traffic and road conditions. "So besides showing you the fastest route, it will also show you the most efficient one, even if they aren't the same," Google says.

Go to Settings > Navigation / Navigation settings and toggle Prefer fuel-efficient routes to on. Here, you can also tell Google Maps your engine type: gas, diesel, electric, or hybrid. Google will then serve up routes based on that engine type to help you save fuel.

20. Find Safe Drug-Disposal Locations

Google Maps is doing its part to fight the opioid crisis with a search tool to help users find safe drug-disposal locations. Type "drug disposal" into the search bar to pull up pharmacies, medical centers, and local authority locations where you can safely dispose of excess pills.

21. Share Your Favorite Places

(Credit: PCMag/Google)

Google Maps lets you share some of your favorite places with a friend. Just tap the share icon on the location's Google Maps card to send it to them via text, email, or your app of choice. Save favorite places by tapping the Save icon; they then show up in the Saved option in the menu bar.

If you want to share more than one favorite location, you can create a Pinterest-like list within Google Maps. When you save a favorite place, tap New List to create a collection (like "Thai restaurants in Brooklyn") or add it to an existing collection. You'll find them in the Saved tab under Your lists; tap the three-dot menu and then Share List to send a link to friends.

22. Become (or Consult) a Local Guide

Think you know your neighborhood better than Google's algorithm? Then consider becoming a Local Guide. Although anyone can leave reviews and tips in Google Maps, being a Local Guides allows you to earn points for leaving more insights and data, which—as you go up the ladder—can result in "rewards and early access to new features," Google says.

You probably want a streaming device for your TV, whether you're a cord cutter or not. Roku is a popular choice, particularly as it ramps up its own original content.

Roku devices offer plenty of variety and portability, from the budget Roku Express to the feature-packed Roku Ultra. Whichever one you have, there's more to know beyond the basics. Here's how to get more out of your streaming device.

Our Top-Rated Roku Devices

1. One List to Rule Them All

(Credit: Roku)

You have watchlists for all of your streaming apps, which means you have to scroll and scroll when you want to find something to watch. Instead, you can save everything to one universal list with a Roku. Use the Roku OS to search for the shows and movies you want to watch, and on the details page of each, select Add to Save List. Find the list by going to the Roku home screen and selecting What to Watch.

2. Pick Up Where You Left Off

Have you ever wanted to resume watching a movie or show where you left off, but you've forgotten which streaming service it was on? Just go to the Roku Home Screen, click What to Watch, scroll to Continue Watching, and it'll be listed there.

3. Watch Free Movies and Shows on The Roku Channel

Video-streaming services are great, but the majority aren't free. With The Roku Channel, you can sign in and access those premium channels (including Max and Netflix)—but the channel also offers free access to thousands of movies and TV episodes, if you can handle a few commercials. Roku has been adding more original content as well. Go to The Roku Channel, and scroll down to the Live TV Channel Guide for hundreds of choices. You can also watch in the Roku app, whether you have a Roku device or not: Just download it, sign in or create an account, and start streaming.

4. Search Thousands of Channels at Once

Instead of searching every Roku channel individually to find what you want, search across them with Roku Search. Enter your search term via the Roku remote, Roku mobile app, or via voice search, and you'll see results from over 4,000 channels. Search by title, actor, or director, and you'll get a comprehensive list. Similarly, use Roku Search to compare the costs of streaming content: Type in a movie, show, or star for a list of available titles and the prices for each across channels and services.

5. Get in the Zone

Roku Zones are collections of movies and shows from across channels that are organized by genre or topic. Go to search, type in a search term such as "comedy," and scroll through the zone that pops up. Roku added a Live TV Zone for quick access to live TV streaming services like Hulu, fuboTV, Philo, Sling, and YouTube TV, to name a few. 

6. Photos as Big as Life

If you want to get a closer look at your photos or share them with a group, you can add Google Photos to your Roku. Go to, sign in (you may have to verify your email), and you'll see a link to connect to Google Photos.

7. Turn Your Phone Into a Roku Remote

As great a device as the Roku is, navigating via the remote could be a better experience. To get around that, download the Roku Official Remote Control app (iOSAndroid), and get the benefit of a keyboard, easy searching, and streaming from your phone or tablet.

8. Talk to Your Roku Remote

That said, you could always talk to your Roku directly with a Roku Voice Remote Pro, Voice Remote, or the Roku mobile app. On the remotes, press either the microphone icon and hold down as you speak your request. On the app, select the magnifying glass to get to the search page, then tap the microphone, let it go, speak your request, and tap the middle of the screen.

9. Ask Alexa or the Google Assistant

If you have an Amazon Echo and a Roku, ask Alexa to control your Roku. First, you'll have to link both accounts by opening the Alexa mobile app, selecting Skills & Games, and searching for Roku. When you find it, tap Enable to Use, sign in to your Roku account, and select the Roku device you want to link (or Select All if you have more than one).

Close your Roku account, and Alexa will search for the device on the Device Discovery screen. Once it's found, tap Manage, Link Devices, and select the Roku you want to connect to Alexa. Then add the Roku to a group by selecting the Devices icon. Either add it to an existing group or create a new one by tapping the plus button. In the Alexa app, tap on the Roku device, and make sure it is enabled. Then you'll be able to use commands such as, "Alexa, open Netflix on living room Roku."

You can also use Google Assistant to make voice requests. First, check that your Roku player is running Roku OS 9.0 or higher or that your Roku TV has Roku OS 8.2 or higher. Set up your Google Assistant on your Google device or app. Open the Google Assistant mobile app, tap Explore > Settings > Home Control > Add Device > Find > Roku. Sign in to your Roku account and then choose which device you want to control with Google Assistant.

10. Find That Lost Remote

The Roku remote is easily lost in couch cushions and under coffee tables. If you've spent far too much time hunting for it, we have some solutions.

  • If you have a remote with a speaker grille, open the Roku app, tap the microphone, and say, "Hey, Roku, find my remote." The remote will emit a beeping noise.

  • If you have a Roku Ultra, long-press the button on the right side of the device, and the remote will emit a beep.

  • If the remote you've lost is the Voice Remote Pro, say, "Hey, Roku, find my remote," and it will start beeping.

  • To stop the beeping noise once you've located your remote, press any button on the remote.

To change the noise your Roku remote emits when it's lost, open the Roku app on your TV and go to Settings > Remote > Change Remote Finder Sound. To hear what it sounds like, click Preview Remote Finder Sound.

11. Make Your Roku at Home(Kit)

For iPhone and iPad owners, Roku devices support AirPlay and HomeKit, so you can send videos, photos, and music from your device to the TV and supported speakers. Set it up in the Roku menu by navigating to Settings > Apple AirPlay & HomeKit > Launch Apple AirPlay & HomeKit setup. A QR code will pop up. Scan it with your iPhone or iPad's camera and follow the instructions on your Apple device to finish setup. HomeKit, meanwhile, lets you control your Roku using Siri and the Apple Home app ("Hey Siri, play jazz on the living room TV").

12. Let Siri and Roku Chat

Three screens with Siri Shortcuts process described below

Your Roku and iPhone can work together, with Siri acting as the interpreter. The Roku iOS app has Siri Shortcuts that let you control your Roku with your voice. Open the app on your phone, tap the account icon at the top right, and select Siri Shortcuts. You can turn on the ability to open the Roku remote, play or pause Roku, search Roku, and turn a Roku on and off for certain models. Click on each option to keep the suggested phrasing or come up with your own commands.

13. Roku Screen Mirroring

With AirPlay enabled, you can mirror your iPhone or iPad screen via the Control Center to Roku, though most Roku devices support screen mirroring from Android and Windows devices too. To hook it up, press the Home button on your Roku remote, then go to Settings > System > Screen Mirroring. You’ll have the option to choose between Prompt or Always Allow.

14. Practice Casting

If you prefer Google's Cast technology, you can send music, videos, and photos from mobile devices to most Roku-connected devices easily as long as both are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Open the content you want to share on the device, and look for the cast icon. Click it, and you should see all available Roku devices pop up in a menu.

15. Automatic Volume Leveling

How many times have you been lulled into somnolence by a show only to be jolted awake by a commercial? On most Roku models, you can turn on Leveling, so a commercial or a channel change doesn't result in a spike in volume. You can also choose to have soft sounds increased and loud sounds decreased with Night mode.

Turn on the feature either from Settings, if you have a Streambar or Smart Soundbar, or while streaming with other Roku devices. For Streambars and Soundbars, press the Home button on the remote and go to Settings > Audio > Volume Modes. For other devices, press the star button on the remote and navigate to Sound Settings > Volume Mode.

16. Use Roku Private Listening

When you want to watch something on your Roku without disturbing those around you, use Private Listening. The Roku Voice Remote Pro, Enhanced Voice Remote, and Gaming Remote include built-in headphone jacks; just plug in and keep watching. Or download the Roku mobile app, connect your headphones to your device, and tap the headphones icon.

17. Save That Screen

Maybe you paused whatever you're watching and walked out of the room. Or you fell asleep, and now the Roku logo is bouncing around your screen like the flying toasters of yore. Give yourself something nicer to look at with Roku's screensavers. Click the Home button on your remote, then go to Settings > Theme > Screensavers.

It's not a Nintendo Switch, but your Roku is still in the game. Hit the Home button, go to Streaming Channels > Games, and you can go retro with Snake or go on a sugar-fueled rampage in Candy Bear. The Roku Enhanced Gaming Remote with Voice Search supports motion-control gaming.

19. Move the Apps on Your Roku Home Screen

Roku displays channels in the order in which you add them, but you can move them around. Find the app you want to move, press the star button on your Roku remote, and select "Move channel" from the pop-up menu. Use the directional pad to move it to the desired location.

20. Say What?

If you missed those last few lines in a show or movie, there's a quick way to catch up. Set up instant replay by going to Settings > Accessibility > Captions Mode and selecting On Replay. Then, when you hit the Instant Replay button on the remote, you'll also get the text on the screen.

21. Stream Your Own Stuff Via Plex

Though Roku offers a ton of different channels and things to watch, you'll probably still want to access your locally stored content on your TV. Sign up for Plex Pass ($4.99 per month, $39.99 per year, $119.99 for a lifetime), and you can. Plex organizes your scattered content and lets you watch it from tablets, TVs, phones, and more; you can record and watch live broadcast TV, too.

Download the Plex app. Then install the Plex channel on your Roku, launch it, then go to Log in and enter the code from the Roku Plex channel on the website.

22. Tap Into Live TV Streaming Services

New live TV services are popping up regularly to meet your sports and Hallmark movie needs. To see what's on offer, click the Home button on your remote, and go to Streaming Channels > Cable Alternative to log into services including Sling and Hulu, or go to Streaming Channels > Watch With Cable to log in with a pay TV provider, such as Comcast or Spectrum. You can also go to the Roku Channel, scroll down to the Live TV Channel Guide, and flip through hundreds of channels without paying for any of them. That includes NewsOn, which streams local news broadcasts from outlets nationwide.

23. Show Your Team Spirit

You can follow your favorite sports teams on Roku by going to the Home screen on your device, scrolling down to Sports, doing a search for an upcoming game, going to that page, and then selecting the heart icon next to your team's name. That will create a My Favorites row under Sports with all upcoming games.

24. Cloud DVRs

A number of live TV streaming services offer cloud DVR, meaning you can record live TV and access your shows later via the service's Roku app.

  • If you have an antenna to watch live TV, you can record it with a device like the Tablo TV. Set it up, download the app to your Roku, and you can watch, pause, and record.

  • YouTube TV subscriptions come with a cloud DVR that holds an unlimited number of hours of programming for nine months.

  • Sling TV customers get 50 hours of free DVR storage. Upgrade to DVR Plus for 200 hours of storage starting at $5 per month.

  • DirecTV Stream comes with a cloud DVR that holds 20 hours of content for nine months.

  • Included with Hulu with Live TV is the ability to record unlimited live news, sports, shows, movies and events, which are saved for up to nine months.

  • Philo subscribers can save anything that streams to the service's included DVR for a year.

  • fuboTV provides subscribers with a DVR function that can be set even partway through a show's airing to capture the entire thing. How much is stored depends on your plan.

25. Be Our Guest

Your guests can make themselves at home by accessing their Roku settings without disturbing yours. All you have to do is enable Guest Mode (previously Auto Sign Out Mode). Go to, set up a PIN, and then press the Home button on the Roku remote. Go to Settings > System > Guest Mode > Enter Guest Mode. Then enter your PIN and select OK. When guests come to stay, direct them to the Roku guide on using Guest Mode

26. Stay Up to Date

To get the most out of your Roku, you should install the latest software version. The device generally handles this on its own, but if you've recently added a channel, or your Roku has been disconnected for a while, you might have missed an update. In that case, you can update manually by going to Settings > System > System Update.

Four Investing Tricks Every Woman Should Know

First making her name as the ‘broke millennial’ blogger, Erin Lowry has grown up since her early twenties. With a personal finance book under her belt, as well as TV spots, snazzy profiles and guest-spots on podcasts, Lowry turned her focus from money 101 to investing…and boy are we glad she did.

Erin Lowry.

With succinct prose and personal anecdotes, the personal finance writer aims to demystify investing with her latest tome, "Broke Millennial Takes on Investing: A Beginner's Guide to Leveling Up Your Money."

Written as a prescriptive advice, the book progresses from the basics (like, what exactly is an ETF?) to more advanced concepts (like the best way to whether a market downturn). The millennial wanted to write something both for the person who didn’t know the first thing about a 401 (k) as well as the person who knows about investing but wants to advance their knowledge.

Fresh off her book tour, I caught up with Lowry over the phone. Our interview was edited and condensed.

Erin Lowry.

Alexandra Talty: In the book, you talk about the concept of being risk adverse. There are countless studies on how women can be more risk adverse than men when it comes to investing. Do you have any tips to over come that initial fear?

Erin Lowry: It’s natural to be risk adverse in the beginning…regardless of gender

You don't know what you’re doing yet. It’s not something that we are taught in school. There’s not often someone there to hold our hands.

Most of us start investing with our retirement accounts. I don’t know about you, but I was not given any sort of assistance by my employer. It was just me and the name of a ton of different investments options. That’s a little overwhelming and intimidating.

There are a couple of things you can do when you are first getting started. One thing to consider is a target date fund which is sometimes known as an all-in-one-fund or a lifecycle fund.

The advantage of doing a target date fund when you’re getting started is that it makes sure your money is actually invested. There are horror stories of people just leaving their retirement money in cash, thinking that it was invested.

A target date fund is simply put, a fund that is tied to an approximate year when you are planning to retire. It removes the burden of having to make a decision of what you’re investing in. So hypothetically, if you’re planning to retire in 2045 then it’s automatically going to invest more aggressively in the beginning, then a bit more moderately and then to the more conservative investments towards your 2045.

The downside of the target date fund is that the fees are typically higher. It’s not tailored specifically to you and your goals and your risk tolerance.

If you have no idea what you’re doing and just want to make sure your money is invested, a target date fund is a good option. You can always re-balance your portfolio at a later date. There’s no rule that says once you go into a target date fund that you have to stay there forever.

Another thing that I recommend people do is to go to Go to the compound interest calculator play around with the numbers. See how much less you have to save if you are investing your way to a million dollars. It’s really hard to save your way to wealth.

AT: You've talked about some tools like micro-investing or practice investing apps. Do you think using those can help people become less risk adverse?

EL: I think they can. The only concern I have is if you get into the market at a bad time. Say your first three months of investment are a time when we happen to be going through a market correction. You’re just seeing negative numbers and negative returns and red arrows pointing down. I would hate to have someone’s first at bat be a very negative experience like that.  

Couple whatever you are doing with a lot of reading and education.  I love going through the history of the stock market. It is cyclical. There are ups, there are downs. That is part of the economic growth cycle.

Also, micro-investing shouldn’t be your primary means of investing. It is a good way for people to get started and get some learning.

ACT: You use this term in the book “having your financial oxygen mask on” to refer to people who’ve paid off most of their student loans or at least the ones above 5% interest, who have an emergency funds and aren’t carrying any credit card debt.

Sometimes, these people will just be investing in their retirement and not investing in other things. What advice would you give to someone who is ready to make that pivot?

Erin Lowry.

EL: If you’re ready to be investing in what’s called taxable accounts I would say the very first step is setting your goals.

What do you want this money to be doing? Because that is going to dictate how much risk you are putting on your money and what kind of investments you are selecting. Without that information, you cannot be making educated choices.

It is also easy to say, 'oh my car is going to quit on me in the next two to three years, well I want to be earning more than my average savings account, let me invest this money.' Truthfully, you probably don’t want to invest that money that you know you’re going to need in two years.

If it’s a goal that is seven to ten years away – then yeah, it makes sense to be investing at least in the beginning. Get some growth on it and then you can get it into something a bit more conservative as you start to reach the end of what we call your time horizon.

ACT: There’s a lot of talk about the gender pay gap and the retirement saving shortfall for women. But there’s also this idea of getting in the investment game early on as a way for women to offset these economic realities.

EL: It would be wonderful for the wage gap to close. For all sorts of inequality for parity to take effect. But we can’t wait around for that to happen.

The advantage of starting young is huge. Then you’re taking advantage of time and compound interest.

Veeam CTO On Why Veeam Wanted To Be Acquired And What Comes Next

Veeam's next growth wave will come in the U.S. where it has a fourth-place market share, and that requires Veeam to move its operations, leadership, board of directors, and focus out of Europe and to the U.S., Danny Allan told CRN in an exclusive meeting.

Looking For Growth In All The Right Places

Veeam, since its founding in 2006, has grown to be one of the top providers of data protection technology, and has more recently invested heavily in the nascent data management market with an eye on the cloud, particularly in the Office 365, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure environments. The company is also committed to building stronger relationships with the top cloud providers.

However, Veeam has faced one key barrier to growth: While it is the leading provider in Europe, and is arguably one of the largest software vendors of any kind in the world, the Baar, Switzerland-based company has only a fourth-place rank in the all-important U.S. market.

Danny Allan, Veeam's new chief technology officer, told CRN that Veeam's pending acquisition by New York-based private equity company Insight Partners is the key to unlocking the U.S. market and future growth for his company. Insight Partners has expertise not only in helping strong private companies grow, it also has experience in the all-important software-as-a-service technology needed to build a strong cloud-focused business.

For deep insight into why Veeam, a billion-dollar-plus and profitable company, decided to go the private equity route to build a U.S. business, turn the page.

Why did Veeam feel the need to be acquired at this time?

This is the next step on a very exciting journey. Over the past decade, we've achieved some massive milestones. In 2019, we passed a billion dollars in annual sales. And that was based on the growth of the modern data center. And we saw this is the right time and the right partner to prepare for the next wave. We talk about Act II a lot. Act I was very much about winning the virtualization wars and winning the modern data center wars. But now we're entering into the cloud era. We see customers now in a very big way moving to the public cloud and deploying hybrid cloud strategies. And we've been working very closely with Insight Partners since 2013. We took a large investment in early 2019. So it's the right partner for us, but also the right time, because we believe that if we can win in the data protection space for the next two years, we'll win and dominate for the next decade.

As part of this acquisition, Veeam's two co-founders, Andrei Baronov and Ratmir Timashev, will step down from the board of directors and will no longer be part of the company. What is happening there?

At the close of the transaction--we're targeted to close at the end of Q1--they'll be stepping down from the board because we'll have 100 percent U.S. ownership and 100 percent U.S. board of directors. So they'll be stepping down from the board and won't be employed by Veeam. I expect there to be a transition period where we'll work together. It's a very strong relationship. And they will work during that transition period to ensure a seamless transition.

So Veeam's headquarters are moving to the U.S. Where?

Not sure where the headquarters will be at the moment. We have two very large facilities already in the U.S. One in Atlanta, Georgia, and one in Columbus, Ohio. We haven't chosen where the headquarters will be. But I suspect that will be something we choose in the next little while.

Is the decision to move the headquarters and board of directors to the U.S. related to U.S. government concerns raised last year about possible Russian ties to the company when Veeam acquired and then sold N2WS?

No. This is all about the growth opportunity in the U.S.

There's two aspects to this. One is, when Veeam was founded, it was right after the financial crash in 2008. So there was a lot of investment put into Europe, because at the time, America was going through financial struggle. And so because of that, we are number one in Europe for data protection. We're number four in the US. We get more revenue out of Europe than in the U.S. And that's the opposite of most large technology companies. Usually it's the other way around. There's more large global companies headquartered in the U.S. So we think there's a massive opportunity with the enterprise in the U.S.

Second is, we talk very much about this being Act II, and going into the cloud data management era. And all of the major cloud providers are U.S. based, and the adoption of cloud is faster in the U.S. So this is all about accelerating that growth in America. But I don't want to lose sight. We are a global company. We have offices in 30 different countries and customers all over the world. So we'll continue to expand around the world. But we just believe will be a massive growth opportunity in the Americas.

Well, with that said, will the acquisition by Insight Partners help open the door for more business with the U.S. government, even though you are saying that this was not part of why Veeam was acquired?

We see opportunity in many different areas in the U.S. One is in the enterprise, one is in, of course, the Federal space, state, local, the SLED business. So there are many different areas for growth, and of course the government will be one of those.

Insight Partners has a program called Onsite which is aimed at bringing its experience and resources in to help its portfolio companies grow. How will that impact Veeam?

The Insight Onsite program, the portfolio of companies that they have, gives us huge opportunities to partner more with other organizations. We're excited. Insight has tremendous experience with things like transitioning to subscription. So there's huge opportunities in that partnership for that. But I would defer to them on any specifics.

With the acquisition, what type of resources can Veeam expect from Insight Partners to bring to help grow Veeam going forward?

The wealth of experience that they have. They have invested in over 300 software companies. I think they've completed more than 200 M&A (merger and acquisition) transactions. They just have a lot of experience in a very broad segment of the market. One of the areas that I'm very interested in the transition to subscription [pricing]. We've been seeing that on our own. Just organically, our customers are moving from the perpetual to the subscription without us pushing them. And one thing that we believe that Insight can add tremendous value is helping us with that transition of our customer base.

We've been working with them for a long time. Mike Triplett has been attending the executive meetings. We've been working very closely with them. So this is just a continuation of a partnership that's in place for a while.

If Veeam had not been acquired by Insight, would Veeam have been able to grow on its own as an independent company?

Yes, no question. We've been doing very well, as you probably know. We crossed a billion in annual sales in May of 2019. And of course, for the full calendar year, we haven't released our results, but we've had significant growth both in annual sales, as well as revenue has been very, very strong. So the growth was certainly there. This is just about adding fuel to the fire, accelerating that growth still further and tackling this next era that we believe we're entering which is the cloud data management era.

So what's next for Veeam? Veeam will now have all these new resources, with a parent company that's known for making a lot of acquisitions. Could you see Veeam doing more acquisitions of other companies going forward?

The focus for Veeam is on growth. And so first and foremost is, how do we win the cloud data management world? That is hybrid cloud, multi-cloud, it's customers adopting cloud platforms. How do we win that? How we tackle that depends of course on the market. Certainly, organic growth is a part of that. But we would never reject inorganic growth or acquisitions. But we're very much focused on continuing accelerating the growth that we've had exponentially by focusing on cloud in the next two years.

When you say Veeam's future growth is tied to the cloud, could you be more specific?

From a technology standpoint, it would be cloud. From a geography standpoint, we believe that there's exponential growth obviously in the US.

Is Veeam growing in terms of personnel to meet the increased focus in the U.S. market?

Yes, without question. We currently have 1,200 employees in the U.S., and we plan to both expand and strengthen that employee base. It is true we're a global company. We have 4,200 employees globally. But we'll continue the accelerated growth in the U.S. market.

So will development in Europe continue as it has been, or will that change?

The growth in development has primarily been in the Czech Republic. Product Management and R&D support is worldwide. It's important to note we have 24x7 support that spans the world. There's support in Bucharest, there's support in Atlanta, there's support in Sydney, Australia. So support is very much global, and of course, sales are global as well.
