They say you can't teach old dogs new tricks. So what about Big Dogs?

For the first 35-odd years of its existence, SAP only marketed and sold its own software. We weren't a platform vendor like Microsoft (Windows), Google (Android) or Apple (Mac OS X, iOS). So we didn't need to woo, support or sell other developers' applications.

It was a self-centered strategy that was borne out of a need to serve the many customers clamoring for our applications, as well as fend off our many rivals - IBM, Oracle, Microsoft and others.

You know how the story turned out: SAP grew to become the market leader (by revenue) in ERP, CRM, and business intelligence/analytics software. The Big Dog, in other words.

But as the enterprise market matured, it posed major challenges to SAP. Rather than rolling over and playing dead, we learned some new tricks.

One of those was launching the SAP Ecohub, an online marketplace for partner software and solutions, in 2008.

As independent analyst Dennis Howlett put it at the time: "EcoHub is a step in a fresh direction for SAP which has been perceived as a company that doesn’t sell products that are ‘not made here.’"

Three years later, SAP offers more than 1,000 partner-built applications via the EcoHub and other channels.

Even bigger than EcoHub was SAP's $5.8 billion purchase of Sybase. Though also falling in the general category of enterprise software, Sybase has always been more of middleware and platform company than applications vendor ala SAP. It's always cultivated developers and partners to build applications that connect to its ASE database or run on top of the Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP).

With these two moves, the next was a no-brainer: releasing our own Enterprise App Store. Called the SAP Store for Mobile Apps, it opened up stealthily on Halloween with more than 50 SAP and SUP-certified apps from partners today, ranging from sales to productivity to human capital management (HCM) running on iOS, BlackBerry and other platforms.

Debuting at the SAPPHIRE NOW + TechEd conference in Madrid this week, the Store is a key part of our strategy to build up an SAP-centric mobile ecosystem.

Even as SAP rushes to release more and more apps that connect with our applications, our goal is to have 80% of all mobile apps be built by partners.

So far, we're not doing too bad. For SAPPHIRE NOW, 20 partners submitted 200 apps to be shown on the show floor. 100 were chosen (check them out at the SAP Partner Mobile App Catalog).

Why are developers starting to come to the SAP Store for Mobile Apps and otherwise build for SAP? I asked Usman Sheikh, the vice-president at EcoHub in charge of the new enterprise app store. He answered my questions and, helpfully, shared these slides.

As I discussed in my blog, 'How Many Kinds of Enterprise App Stores are There Today?', vendors are starting to deploy their own enterprise app stores, in order to provide a blend of the features in consumer-oriented app stores (easy browsing, instant purchase and download) and the kind of features required by enterprise users: flexible payments (credit card or corporate invoice), company discounts, the ability to check if your device or OS version is compatible with the app, as well as certification (by SAP) that apps will work with back-end systems, confirmed Sheikh.

Other features include pre-sales support for potential customers. These include a 1-800 number and chat and e-mail to reach SAP reps as well as the original partner developer. This supports the higher-touch model preferred by customers forking over not $1.99 per app, but potentially hundreds of dollars or more.

To accommodate line-of-business users who prefer to quickly get the app running in order to kick the tires themselves, SAP is offering its app store as an iOS app. See the screenshot below.

Longer-term, the SAP Store for Mobile Apps will be tightly integrated with the Sybase Afaria mobile device management software. Within weeks, users should be able to launch the SAP Store from within Afaria, said Sheikh. Afaria will also eventually be able to communicate with the Store so that only apps consistent with an employee's role in a company are displayed, as well as help configure and install new apps. That integration will continue to grow. "Afaria will be the preferred MDM solution," he said.

The Store not only supports apps built on Sybase's SUP app development platform, but also apps built using other technologies such as the cloud-based Business ByDesign or SAP NetWeaver Gateway, Sheikh said. See the chart below.

And what about the all-important financial terms? Developers will get an 85% share of all app license and subscription revenue garnered through the Store, said Sheikh. In other words, SAP is taking 15% - just half of Apple's 30% take for its App Store. Developers are not bound by exclusivity agreements, said Sheikh.

Sheikh said SAP will "respect" developers who wish to offer their apps on a freemium basis - i.e. free versions that can be converted later into paid via in-app purchases - but expects to receive their 15% cut of those subsequent in-app purchases.

As mentioned, apps must be certified by SAP before they can be sold on the Mobile Apps Store. That is free for the rest of the year.

How about for 2012? "It will be reasonable and competitive," Sheikh said.

For now, the SAP Store for Mobile Apps will be focused on apps that either run on SUP middleware or explicitly hook into SAP server applications. But Sheikh anticipates the Store eventually growing to support more general productivity and business apps, provided they are relevant to SAP users.

Granted, the Store remains in beta today. Many of the features mentioned above, such as credit card purchasing and the ability to selectively offer apps to users based on their job role, won't be ready til first or second quarter next year.

Even still, can you name another vendor-operated enterprise app store that is more advanced than SAP's? If so, please share with me and other readers. For now, I think SAP Store is further proof that big dogs can learn new tricks.

Killexams : New World Tech Fall Victim To Old World Tricks

Wednesday, July 27, 2022

OpenSea have reported a breach whereby email addresses registered with the site have been shared with an unauthorised third party.

For landlubbers, OpenSea is the world’s largest marketplace for non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The Head of Security at OpenSea identified an employee of OpenSea’s third party email delivery vendor as the source of the breach. The employee reportedly misused their access privileges to get and share the list of the site’s registered email addresses with an external party.

People who have shared an email address with OpenSea, such as subscribers to the site’s newsletter, are warned to remain vigilant about attempts by malicious parties to impersonate communications from OpenSea.

OpenSea has dealt with several security incidents this year. Only a month ago, a former OpenSea product manager was arrested and is reportedly the first person to have been charged in connection with a digital asset insider trading scheme. The product manager’s responsibilities included deciding which NFTs would be featured on the site’s homepage, which he allegedly used for his own financial gain. When OpenSea had discovered his conduct in September 2021, OpenSea requested and accepted the product manager’s resignation. Immediately afterwards, OpenSea commissioned a third party review of the incident and implemented the review’s recommendations to strengthen their existing policies.

In May this year, OpenSea’s Discord server was hacked. Just a few months earlier, 254 NFTs valued at around $1.7million USD were stolen through what appear to have been phishing attacks. OpenSea has reportedly reimbursed the victims.

These incidences highlight the status of NFT marketplaces as high value targets for malicious actors and reveals that many of the security vulnerabilities faced in the ‘old’ world of cyber technology remain a threat in the new world of blockchain and NFTs.

Once again, these incidents serve as a reminder for organisations to develop effective cyber security risk management, which requires an approach that encompasses all security vulnerabilities and that includes mechanisms governing employee access and use of sensitive information.

Killexams : 4 Helpful iPhone and Android Tricks You May Not Know About

This summer marks 15 years since Apple released the first iPhone, and since then, smartphones have become the Swiss Army knives of technology. But with the avalanche of updates since 2007, less-obvious features are often buried in the process. Here’s a quick look at some possibly overlooked tools, shown here in iOS 15 and Android 12.

A maps app has been part of the modern smartphone toolbox from the start, but Google and Apple have now added the camera and a dash of augmented reality to the experience for extra help with on-the-ground orientation. (Your results will vary by location, though, and be prepared for some battery drain.)

In Google Maps for Android and iOS, enter your destination, tap Directions and select Walking. Tap the Live View icon in the corner of the map. Your phone instructs you to point the camera at nearby buildings so the app can recognize your surroundings by comparing it with Google Street View images. Once set, your directions appear overlaid on the view through on the camera screen to guide you along.

Credit...Apple

Apple Maps uses the iPhone’s camera in a similar way when you request walking directions in supported cities and tap the AR icon on the map screen. (For alternative navigation options, Apple includes a stand-alone digital Compass app with iOS, and Google Maps has a compass that appears onscreen when you start your journey.)

In addition to its tour-guide duties, the phone’s camera can double as a scanner for both documents and quick-response, or QR, codes. In iOS, you can scan a document or receipt in the Notes app by making a new note, pressing the camera icon on the toolbar and selecting Scan Documents. You can also scan and attach a document to an email message you’re composing by tapping the scan icon on the keyboard’s toolbar.

Credit...Apple
Credit...Google

As for those boxy, black-and-white QR codes for websites or electronic payment systems, just open Apple’s Camera app or Google Camera and point it at the QR code to scan it. Many of Samsung’s Galaxy phones have a QR Scanner option that works with the camera app, too.

Credit...Apple; Google

But there is a caveat with QR codes, beyond privacy considerations: Be careful to scan codes only from trusted sources, because cybercriminals use them for fraud and to spread malicious software.

The phone’s microphone has likewise expanded its powers beyond voice memos, dictation and audio/video calls in accurate years. One reason: Apple’s 2018 acquisition of the Shazam music-recognition app.

Credit...Apple

The Auto Shazam feature — which automatically tries to identify music playing nearby — works on both the iOS and Android versions and can be enabled by pressing and holding the Shazam button when the app is open. (This may sap additional battery juice and data.)

After you identify a song with Shazam, you can play it in an Apple Music, Deezer, Spotify or YouTube Music account. In the Shazam settings, you can connect your list of recognized songs to Apple Music or Spotify.

Credit...Google

Many of Google’s Pixel phones include a similar Now Playing feature you can enable in the Sound & Vibration settings. Once activated, the software displays song titles on the Lock screen and creates a history list of the music playing within microphone range. (The Now Playing tool is designed for Pixel phones, but a web search reveals creative coders have adapted it for other Android phones.)

When you need emergency assistance, your phone has shortcuts to connect you. On an iPhone 8 or later, hold down the right-side button and one of the volume buttons until you see the Emergency SOS slider onscreen, and then drag the slide to call the local emergency number; if you can’t drag the slider, keep holding down the buttons until the phone automatically makes the call. In the Emergency SOS settings, you can enable the phone to make an emergency call when you press the side button five times.

Credit...Apple; Google

Android-based phones, including Google’s Pixel and Samsung’s Galaxy models, have their own emergency-service aids. On phones with a power button, hold down that button until you see the Emergency icon and then tap it. On a phone without a power button, try swiping down on the screen to get to the Quick Settings for Emergency Mode or swiping up from the bottom to get to the Emergency Call button. Google’s free Personal Safety app for Android provides more tools for handling future emergency situations, for those who like to be prepared.

Killexams : 15 Pro Tricks For Removing Fluff In Marketing And Sales Copy

One of the most important parts of writing solid, effective copy is the self-editing process. Refining a good piece of writing by eliminating fluff can elevate it, turning it into a great piece of content that not only achieves its original intention but can also be repurposed across many types of media for digital marketing, sales and other purposes.

Seasoned pros in the agency world often develop favorite tricks for removing fluff to tighten, shape and massage marketing and sales copy down to only the most essential, compelling and actionable language. Here, 15 members of Forbes Agency Council each share their own top tip for ensuring they create the highest quality, most effective written copy possible with the least amount of fluff.

1. Keep It Short And Simple

While there are exceptions, the most compelling copy is easy to read. That means avoiding run-on sentences, using accessible language and making paragraphs dynamic. Short sentences create impact. Long, descriptive sentences act as an anchor to propel readers through the narrative. The ultimate test is simply to read it aloud and ask yourself, “How easy was that to do?” - Chris Martin, FlexMR

2. Ask Someone Outside Of Your Industry To Read It

To remove fluff and jargon, ask someone from outside your industry to read your copy. If they cannot understand it, use their feedback either to make it more clear or to question whether or not you need to use certain industry terms. Start with, ”What do we offer?” and, “What do we want you to do?”—anything beyond answering those might just be fluff. - A. Lee Judge, Content Monsta

3. Write What You Want The Audience To Pass Along To Others

Ask yourself what you want your customer/audience to tell the next person. “Gee, I just saw this notice about....” That forces the conversation out of the descriptive and sales mode and into enlistment. A related version is to make it a story that the listener/viewer/reader can pass along. What we call “highly targeted” stories—that is, very specific—are more likely to get passed on. - Merrie Spaeth, Spaeth Communications

4. Combine Expertise With AI Copy Tools

I have been using a combination of my team’s expertise and artificial intelligence via Jasper.ai or Copy.ai. If I have writer’s block and am struggling to come up with something, I use these types of AI software to help spark ideas or just simply rewrite my fluff. - Denny Smolinski, beBOLD Digital


Forbes Agency Council is an invitation-only community for executives in successful public relations, media strategy, creative and advertising agencies. Do I qualify?


5. Write Only What Solves The Reader’s Problem

I think of the movie Apollo 13 and how the astronauts had to make things out of very raw materials to survive. Picture your reader on the Apollo 13 spacecraft. What do they need to survive and thrive? give them only that. Sometimes, you have to bring clarity to their problem in order to solve it. Do that in a clear and simple way, and solve it the same way. - Brandon Murphy, Dendro

6. Use Active Versus Passive Voice

Write “schedule an appointment” versus “an appointment can be scheduled.” Work your nouns and verbs as opposed to adjectives and adverbs. Match the length of copy to the level of risk. Write shorter copy for low-commitment purchases, and longer, more informative copy for substantial purchases. - Phillip Davis, Tungsten Branding

7. Treat The Customer As The Hero Of The Copy

Reduce your role to that of the guide who helps the customer get the results they want. Get rid of anything that sounds desperate or “salesy.” Be succinct, and don’t be afraid to poke fun at yourself. Now, read your copy out loud and ask yourself if you would be comfortable doing so in public. If you would, you have a winner. - Jayant Chaudhary, JLB USA

8. Focus On The Benefits

It’s never about the product; it’s about how that product will enhance someone’s life. After you’ve written the copy, reread the copy and ask, “So what?” and “Why would someone care?” Answering these questions will help you focus on benefits and catch consumers’ attention. - Heather Osgood, True Native Media

9. Always Come Back To Your Single-Minded Thought

Always ask, “What’s our single-minded thought?” We call it our global positioning system because it’s the North Star of every project brief. If any word doesn’t ladder back up to the GPS—the one thing we’re trying to convince our target audience to do or believe—then it’s just noise. Referencing the GPS helps keep editing objective and copy on-strategy. - Becca Apfelstadt, treetree

10. Write Your First Draft As If You’re A Caveman

As ridiculous as it sounds, this exercise forces you to cut superfluous text and substantially simplify your message. It’ll also help you think through writing in a different way, which leads to stronger, more creative writing overall. It’s a win-win for you and your client. - Cagan Sean Yuksel, Dream Space

11. Use Verbiage That Is Familiar To Your Audience

My go-to trick is to keep my audience top of mind and use verbiage that is familiar and approachable to them. Industry jargon can get repetitive and overcomplicate your messaging. By putting yourself in your audience’s shoes, you’ll have a better understanding of what they would really want to know and how to address it in a clear, concise and solution-oriented manner. - Chris Toy, MarketerHire

12. Get All The Words Down On Paper, Then Make Cuts

Get all the words down on paper—no matter how far over your desired word count you might be. From there, cut out excess words. Then, do it again. To identify where to trim from, read what you have written aloud. This will help ensure you leave the most actionable content for your reader to enjoy. - Donna Robinson, Collective Measures

13. Start By Writing In Bullet Point Format

My favorite trick to remove fluff is to begin by writing in bullet point format, often aiming for an eighth-grade memorizing level. Marketers like to provide a lot of context and background information, which can make sentences long and less punchy. Writing in short bullets can help identify the most salient points, and then it’s easy to expand from there as needed. - Antonella Pisani, Eyeful Media

14. Try Having Kids Read Your Copy And Cutting Adverbs

Have kids? Have them read your copy. They’re really good jargon meters. If you don’t, check to see if your copy is filled with adverbs. Make writing clearer and more vivid by selecting active verbs to enhance your writing. Those adverbs may sound nice, but they are the trait of lazy, cluttered writing. - Nate Reusser, Reusser Design

15. Read It Out Loud

Read it out loud as if you are having a conversation with someone. If it doesn’t sound natural, clear and compelling, then you’ve got more editing ahead of you. - Katy Thorbahn, Shiny

In the thick of Kansas' contentious debate over abortion rights, the anonymous text messages arriving on the eve of the big referendum this week seemed clear enough. “Voting YES on the Amendment will give women a choice.”

The only problem: It was a lie, transmitted by text message Monday, a day before voters were to decide a ballot amendment seen as the first test of voter sentiment after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Voters in the conservative state with deep ties to the anti-abortion movement ended up rejecting the measure.

“We’ve certainly seen dirty tricks, but never this level of deception aimed to make people vote the opposite way than they intend to,” said Davis Hammet, president of Loud Light, a youth voter registration and engagement organization in Kansas.

The misleading texts sent to Kansas Democrats highlights the growing problem of political disinformation sent by automated text message, a ubiquitous communication system that presents new opportunities for those who would attempt to deceive voters.

To be sure, ballot initiatives are often confounding — sometimes by design, so voters will support a measure they actually oppose.

But text messages are emerging as an increasingly popular means of spreading disinformation about voting and elections. That reflects a broader embrace of texting by political campaigns and organizations, a trend that accelerated when the pandemic forced campaigns to find new ways to engage with voters.

People in the United States received nearly 6 billion political texts in 2021, according to an analysis by RoboKiller, a mobile phone app that lets users block text and voice spam. That's after a steady rise throughout the 2020 election that saw political spam texts increase by 20% a month.

“There's been an explosion of political text messages since 2020 and since then the political messages have stuck around," said RoboKiller's vice president, Giulia Porter.

Two days after the 2020 election, thousands of anonymous texts were sent to supporters of then-President Donald Trump, stating that election officials in Philadelphia were rigging the vote. The text urged the recipients to show up where ballots were being counted to “show their support” for Trump.

The anonymous texts were later linked to a texting company run by one of Trump’s top campaign officials.

The same year, someone used text messages to spread false rumors of a national COVID-19 lockdown. Federal officials later blamed a foreign government for trying to stoke fear and division.

Text messages can offer specific advantages over social media when it comes to disseminating misinformation without leaving tracks, according to Darren Linvill, a Clemson University professor who researches disinformation techniques.

People also view text messages in a different way than social media, Linvill said. Social media is designed to reach the widest audience possible, but text messages are sent to particular phone numbers. That suggests the sender knows the recipient in some way and is specifically targeting that person.

“People aren’t as used to distrusting information on a text message,” Linvill said. “It’s more personal. Someone out there has your phone number and they’re reaching out to touch you with this information.”

While large social media companies have had varying success in curbing misinformation on their platforms, text messages are unmoderated. Because they aim for maximum exposure, disinformation campaigns using social media are easier to spot, study and expose, while text messages are private, one-to-one communications.

Software allowing groups to send hundreds or thousands of texts using fake numbers makes it even more difficult to find out the identity of the sender.

The texts sent in Kansas used a messaging platform made by Twilio, a San Francisco-based communications company. Twilio would not identify the customer who sent the texts, but a spokesman said the sender had been suspended from its service for violating its rules on disinformation.

The ballot amendment asked Kansans to decide on a proposed change to the state constitution that would clear the way for its Republican-controlled Legislature to more strictly regulate or ban abortion. A “yes” vote would have supported amending the constitution to remove the right to abortion. A “no” vote opposed amending the state constitution, maintaining a right to abortion.

Lindsay Ford, the associate director of a Kansas nonprofit voter engagement group called The Voter Network, noted that the texts came at a critical time, when someone looking to manipulate voters might have the best chance of succeeding.

“This is when voters who aren’t super engaged start to pay attention, in the last couple of days before the election," Ford said. “So if they’re looking for something and haven’t seen information anywhere else and that was the first or only text they received, I can see how that could lead people down the wrong path.”

Killexams : How to get rid of a sore throat quickly - the best tips and tricks to cure it
 A man with soar throat.

There's nothing worse than a sore throat, well, except a hacking cough. Most sore throats, also known as pharyngitis, are caused by minor illnesses like a cold or flu and will go away with time, but there are few things you can try to speed up the process or ease the pain. Whatever the cause is, the first concern of most people is to ease the pain. It's tempting to run to a doctor, but give some of these home remedies a go first. Here are a few tips and tricks to easing a sore throat when you're next suffering.

What causes a sore throat?

A sore throat refers to pain, itchiness, or irritation of the throat. You may have difficulty swallowing food and liquids, and the pain may get worse when you try to swallow. It can be caused by either a viral or bacterial infection.

How to get rid of or ease a sore throat

Medicines

1. Take anti-inflammatories

Paracetamol is better for children, but adults can take ibuprofen to get any swelling down. Children under 16 shouldn't take aspirin.

2. Lozenges and sprays

These can work, as lozenges encourage saliva production, helping keep the throat moist. Choose ones with a cooling ingredient for extra relief. Hard sweets, ice cubes or ice lollies also work.

3. Gargle in saltwater

Gargling in salt water several times a day helps reduce swelling in the throat and losens any mucus helping to flush out your bacteria. Dissolve half a teaspoon of salt in one cup of water. If the salt is too much add a small touch of honey. Spit the water out after gargling and do not swallow it.

4. Drink more fluids

Drink plenty of cool or warm fluids, as you need to keep hydrated. Avoid very hot drinks. To test if you are drinking enough, check your urine. If it's clear or pale that means you are drinking enough. Darker urine means you need to drink more. Water works, ice cubes, you can also have watered down fruit juice or a broth.

5. Drink tea

If you're tired of all that water, you can also drink tea. Herbal tea can give relief, but the black, green or white tea leaves, contain antioxidants that are thought to strengthen immunity and ward off infections. You can also add a boost of honey. As Mary Poppins said 'it helps the medicine go down'.

6. Does chicken soup work?

Everyone has been told one time or another, by their mum or gran, to try chicken soup. Does it actually help though? It can help ease a sore throat as doctors believe sodium has anti-inflammatory properties, it also feels good and eases your throat. There's also the added benefit of it nourishing you when you probably don't feel like eating much.

7. Marshmallows

Yes, marshmallows. There's no hard evidence this works, but the sap from the marshmallow plant has been used - normally as a tea - to treat coughs, colds and sore throats. The real marshmallow looks nothing like the sweet treats we are used to, but both could help. People have argued the gelatin in the sweets coats and soothes.

8. Rest

Sleep is your best remedy. If you can stay in bed, and rest up. Most sore throats are caused by a cough or cold so can be cured by fixing that first.

9. Nasal rinsing

Filling your nose with salt water doesn't sound very nice, but it can help. There is research to back this up. In 2008 children who rinsed with nasal water six times a day felt some relief from cold symptoms. Remember, that rinsing may also wash away and protective mucus that has built up.

10. Humidifier to help you breathe

Sometimes your throat is hurting because the air is dry. You've probably heard of a de-humidifier, well, this does the opposite and fills the air with moisture.

11. Honey helps the medicine go down

A spoonful of honey in your drinks will ease your symptoms.

12. Make an ice lolly

If you're just in too much pain, make ice lollies. Licking the ice lolly will ease your aching throat and numbs the area.

BCS_611_GL_1104_0249-RT_ - Credit: Greg Lewis/AMC/Sony Pictures Television

A review of this week’s Better Call Saul, with the provocative title of “Breaking Bad,” coming up just as soon as I watch a cat eating ice cream…

“She asked about me.” —Gene

More from Rolling Stone

And here they finally are. Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. As the latter would say: Yeah, bitch!

Saul Goodman was introduced on a Breaking Bad episode titled “Better Call Saul,” so it seems only fitting that the Better Call Saul episode presenting those same events from Saul’s perspective should be titled “Breaking Bad.” The hour finally brings us the promised cameos by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul as Walt and Jesse, and it does show the audience some of what Saul was thinking and doing when his new clients weren’t around. But it’s much less interested in presenting an alternate history of the Heisenberg era than in drawing parallels between the man Jimmy McGill had become by that point in his life and the man that Gene Takovic is rapidly slipping back into being.

Where last week’s “Nippy” took place entirely in Omaha, “Breaking Bad” splits its time between the black-and-white Gene world and the many colors — sometimes muted, sometimes garish — of Saul world circa Breaking Bad Season Two. We open with Saul lying on the floor of the RV — or, as Jesse reminds us that he calls it, “the Crystal Ship” — a bag over his head as he is driven into the desert by men he assumes works for Lalo Salamanca. Then we are back in the Gene timeline, but in Albuquerque, catching up with a miserable Francesca, who now has to pay the bills managing a small apartment building occupied by morons. It is November 12, 2010, two months after the events of both the Breaking Bad finale and El Camino, and a few weeks after Gene and Jeff robbed the department store. It is also Jimmy McGill’s 50th birthday (in a franchise where 50th birthdays tend to be important turning points for the protagonists). But more importantly, it is the date on which Saul and Francesca agreed — in the flash-forward teaser from Season Four’s “Quite a Ride” — that she would be waiting by a payphone for an important call. The person on the other end of the line is our man, desperate for any good news from his old stomping grounds. Most of what Francesca (who is being paid for her time from some cash Saul buried before leaving town) has to offer is the bad kind: With everyone else connected to Walt’s exploits either dead or cooperating with authorities, Saul and Jesse(*) are the two big targets remaining.

(*) As promised in El Camino, Jesse’s car was left down by the Mexican border, sending any manhunt in the opposite direction from his new life in Alaska as “Mr. Driscoll.”

There is one promising development Francesca reluctantly shares, perhaps out of the last residue of affection she has for the man who originally hired her: Kim called to check up on her after Walt and Saul’s exploits became very public, and she “asked if you were alive.” This is an understandable question from a woman who once loved him(*), but Gene treats Kim’s attempt for closure instead as an opening to reach out to her. She has apparently stuck to her decision to leave the law, and is working for a sprinkler company in central Florida. We do not hear either end of the conversation Gene has when he calls the place, as the episode’s writer-director Thomas Schnauz shoots it from outside the grimy roadside phone booth, but we can tell from Bob Odenkirk’s performance that it goes very, very badly. (If Kim couldn’t abide being with Jimmy after one person was killed, how do you think she reacted to the news that he had aided and abetted a drug kingpin with a high body count?) Gene’s response — which includes screaming, slamming down the receiver, and kicking in some of the phone booth’s glass exterior — suggests that a door has just been loudly slammed in his face.

(*) But so what?

Jimmy allowed himself to fully become Saul Goodman as a way to ease the pain after Kim walked out on him. And now Gene does the same thing when he realizes that his dream of one day reuniting with her has been dashed.

The caper from “Nippy” had a light, almost triumphant feeling to it. It wasn’t so much Gene channeling Saul, even with the shirt-and-tie combo he modeled at the end, but Gene slippin’ back to his more benign days as Jimmy. No one was really hurt, other than Frank’s attempts to reduce his waistline. What happens after the Florida phone call is much darker. Saul is in full control now, setting up a thorough, relentless identity theft scam with Jeff and Jeff’s friend Buddy. There is no larger purpose to this the way there was with the mall heist. Yes, Gene might want to rebuild some of the fortune he lost when the feds seized all the assets he thought he had carefully hidden away. But it’s obvious that he’s doing it because he needs the rush he got as Saul, as well as the ability to hurt other people to mask his own pain. As he tricks one sap after another with a very old hustle — pretending to get drunk with them when he’s really draining each glass into a hot water bottle strapped to his belly — he revives his old nom de scam as Viktor. But this is a Viktor who does not have Kim’s Giselle by his side, so there is no component of fun to be had. The cruelty is the point — even after he discovers that his latest mark, Mr. Lingk(*) has an advanced form of cancer.

(*) The name is an homage to the sucker Ricky Roma takes out to dinner in Glengarry Glen Ross.

Though Gene briefly looks regretful on learning this, he still goes ahead with the plan as usual. He is furious to learn that Buddy couldn’t go through with his end of the operation upon noticing Lingk’s medication, which is similar to what Buddy’s father took to battle cancer. It’s not just that Gene, as he indignantly tells his underling, has a history with a cancer patient who was also an asshole — and that Lingk works as a convenient stand-in for the man Gene really wants to blame for his current circumstances, even though they are entirely a result of choices Saul Goodman made voluntarily — it’s that Gene no longer cares who is hurt, or how, just so long as he has a means to shove down all of his own pain for as long as he can keep the grift humming. He fires Buddy and orders Jeff to drive him to Lingk’s house, so blinded with anger that he once again smashes some glass, this time breaking into the house after Buddy removed the duct tape over the lock. It is utterly reckless and pointless, since the whole idea is to prevent the victims from realizing their information has been stolen until much, much later. But Saul Goodman — who Gene has become again in everything but name — doesn’t care. He wants more. He needs more. And he needs it now now now.

Lingk’s condition draws a line back to the episode’s Albuquerque scenes circa “Better Call Saul,” as we see that Saul knew about Walt’s diagnosis even before Walt told him in “4 Days Out.” But the reason the flashbacks are here — besides the opportunity to see Cranston and Paul play these roles together one last time, on a recreation of the Breaking Bad set where they shared so many of their best scenes — is to underline what Gene is doing in 2010. After the bag has been removed from his head and he realizes that his abductor is “Mr. Mayhew”(*), Saul is impressed to figure out that these two clowns are the ones responsible for the blue meth that has been causing such a stir in town. He could just take the money they are paying him to resolve the Badger situation and go back to what is clearly a very lucrative, enjoyable, and fairly safe life. But being Saul Goodman is an addiction, always creating the demand for bigger and more frequent highs. And in Heisenberg, he has found a man who can get him higher than he ever dreamed possible.

(*) This episode may be the biggest test yet of the idea that you can watch Saul without ever having seen its predecessor. There are aspects of this series that depend to some degree or other on your knowledge of Breaking Bad, but the flashbacks here assume a knowledge of the events of the “Better Call Saul” episode that could render it particularly inscrutable to the Saul-only audience.

Schnauz loads the 2008 scenes with visual reminders of the original series: among others, the duct tape covering the bullet holes in the RV’s door, the infamous red light of the RV from “4 Days Out,” and Mike wearing sunglasses (like he did in his very first appearance) when he arrives in Saul’s office. But the Cranston-Paul-Odenkirk interactions are the marquee event, and they live up to our anticipation. No, Paul does not look like an overgrown kid in his early twenties, even shot in darkness and with a beanie covering part of his head. But Jonathan Banks doesn’t look like a middle-aged man anymore, either, and that’s worked out just fine for his work on this series. The Cranston-Paul chemistry is as crackling as it’s always been, and it’s a treat to see once again how easily Walt gets annoyed with both Jesse and Saul, how eager Jesse is to show off his chemistry skills to anyone who will pay attention, and how resentful he in turn can get with Walt’s high-handed demeanor. There’s no big drama, because it would feel like a cheat to insert some new conflict for them that wasn’t part of the step-by-step process we watched on Breaking Bad. But it’s them back in their element one last time, and it’s very, very good.

The more crucial flashback scene in many ways takes place back at Saul’s office. He is lying on the floor using the Swing Master — which he purchases again in the Gene timeline as yet another way to get that ol’ Saul Goodman feeling — when Mike arrives with new intel. This is yet another callback, as Saul was in the same position when Mike came to threaten him in “Full Measure” — a moment that’s arguably the closest Breaking Bad ever came to suggesting Saul knew all along that his investigator really worked for someone else(*).

(*) Here, Mike refuses to talk with Saul until he turns off the Swing Master and stands up like a professional. In “Full Measure,” he orders him to stay on the ground, the better for Mike to maintain his dominant position.

The new scene clarifies the true nature of their arrangement. Saul knows that Mike is in the primary employ of “He Who Shall Not Be Named.” But Mike also does work for Saul as a way of gathering intel on the Albuquerque criminal community, since Saul has purchased Dr. Caldera’s little black book and is facilitating shady business on the side. More importantly, it does not attempt to retcon the nature of Saul’s initial interactions with Walt. We know, from the flashback at the start of Breaking Bad Season Four, that Gus was already interested in the blue meth because Gale wouldn’t stop raving about it. But Saul’s interest in working with Heisenberg is entirely his own. Even after Mike warns him that this guy is a reckless amateur who will endanger anyone foolish enough to work with him — advice Mike ultimately, and fatally, fails to take for himself — Saul can’t let go of the idea. In Heisenberg, he sees a meal ticket. Attempting to be “a friend of the cartel” had nightmarish repercussions for Jimmy, including the death of Howard and the loss of Kim. But he has always been one to believe that the problem was never with the scheme, but its execution. This high school teacher does not seem to be the physical or tactical threat of a Lalo, and is such a bumbler overall at this stage that Saul sees him as someone he can puppeteer into generating a large fortune for all involved.

And the idea works, for a while. But then Walt and Gus go to war, then Walt and Jesse do, Walt and Hank, and Walt and the Nazis, and now the man who once called himself Saul Goodman lives alone in Omaha (and is back to paying sex workers), works in a shopping mall, and gets his kicks running short cons on well-to-do men in bars. It always ends in ruins, like the statue of Ozymandias that gave the best Breaking Bad episode its title, and that Saul unwittingly alludes to here when joking about him and his new criminal partners being buried in a sandstorm for a thousand years. He does not listen to Mike’s counsel in the office, nor does he listen to Buddy and Jeff’s attempts to tell him he is taking the current sting way too far.

The episode neatly transitions back and forth between the eras so that, for instance, Gene slamming the door of Jeff’s cab turns into Saul closing the door of his Cadillac as he prepares to confront Walt at the school where he works. The most effective of these comes right after the Walt and Jesse scene. Walt finally gets the Crystal Ship running, but the camera lingers on the grave he and Jesse dug to scare Saul into cooperating, and that shot in turn dissolves into Gene lying awake in his bed — the two compositions blending together in a way that makes it look as if Gene is down at the bottom of that pit. He has metaphorically dug his own grave, despite ample warnings from Chuck, Kim, Mike, and now even Jeff. Even if he doesn’t get caught for breaking into Mr. Lingk’s house, he is in a spiral entirely of his own making. He’s wearing Marco’s pinkie ring again, and otherwise donning the bland garb of Gene Takovic, but there is no one to blame here other than Jimmy McGill and the choice he made to become Saul Goodman.

That happy ending that Gene joked about with Marion last week seems very far away right now, if not impossible.

Some other thoughts:

* I spoke at length with Thomas Schnauz about the opportunity to bring back Walt and Jesse, why he thinks Mike is still working for Saul all these years later, and a whole lot more. A great conversation.

* Vince Gilligan used El Camino to tie off one semi-loose Breaking Bad story thread by having Jesse hear a radio report clarifying that Walt definitely died from the gunshot wound, since some fans had speculated that he somehow survived. Schnauz uses Gene’s conversation with Francesca to provide a bit more closure to the original series. We learn that the lottery ticket that Walt gave Skyler, featuring the GPS coordinates of Hank and Gomez’s burial site, managed to get Skyler out of her legal trouble, as Walt had hoped. More amusingly, we find out that Huell made it home to Louisiana, getting off scot-free from his involvement in the criminal enterprise because Hank and Gomez left him illegally in a DEA safe house while they went off in their doomed pursuit of Walt.

* Francesca also gives us closure on a familiar figure from this series, as we find out that Jimmy’s old sparring partner from the DA’s office, Bill Oakley, has gone into private practice, and even has “William Oakley & Associates” bus bench ads like Saul once did.

* Once again, we get a warped VHS tape version of a familiar Saul title sequence. And once again, the cast credits only list actors who are in the episode, so just Odenkirk and Banks, with no Seehorn, Fabian, et al. It almost feels like these final four episodes are being presented as a brief sequel show to the one that ended with “Fun and Games.”

* That is not a cover of The Monkees’ “Tapioca Tundra” playing over the identity theft montage, but Mike Nesmith’s original demo of the song. Schnauz loves The Monkees.

* “Nippy” gave us an in-jokey fake product by having Marion demo a piece of Schnauz Cheese at the supermarket, and here we see that Gene’s first victim has money squirreled away with Cherkis Investments, named after longtime Saul writer Ann Cherkis.

* Another callback to earlier in the series: Gene buys burner phones for Jeff and Buddy to make it easier to keep in touch with the scams.

* Finally, this is the last episode of Better Call Saul that critics will be seeing in advance. So coverage of the two concluding chapters will come later than has been the norm so far.

Killexams : Real Estate Leads: Tricks And Tools For Optimizing Facebook Ads

Sam Mehrbod | Ph.D. is a Builder, Investor & CEO at Roomvu Real Estate Social Media | Turning Complex News & Data to Videos.

The housing market has caused a variety of headlines in 2020 and 2021. Since many new sellers made money, more people began asking themselves if they could also sell real estate. As a result, new faces entered the market for the first time. The career is now so popular that there are more real-estate agents than homes for sale in the U.S. The spike in home prices has helped business for real estate agents, but not as much as one might think.

One question remaining at the top of many agents’ minds is how to get seller leads in a digital post-pandemic world. The old tried ways are all there: door knocking, newspaper classifieds, etc., but the reality is that the highest chance of finding potential customers is on their phone through applications such as Facebook or Instagram. Chances are that a lot of agents once tried running an ad on Facebook only to quit after spending a few hundred dollars.

Last year, one of our goals at Roomvu was to find seller leads for real estate agents across North America and help them qualify those leads. We looked at real estate ad creatives, audience behaviors, targeting levels and, most importantly, why so much money was wasted running fruitless ads. When it comes to getting the best out of Facebook’s advertisement technology, here are the biggest mistakes that agents should avoid.

1. You are chasing seller addresses on your ad.

Many ads tend to pop up on social media that ask the question, “What’s your home worth?” The ad was first used about seven years ago with the idea to get potential sellers to enter their addresses and fill out a form to get valuations for the agents. Today, this ad is one of the most frequently ordered by agents.

The problem is that this ad does not perform anywhere near as well as it once did. The reason is that agents running this ad expect someone who has no idea who you are to tell you where their home is. Another reason is that this ad is so widely overused that the sellers no longer fall for it.

Instead of this approach, you can utilize the platform in your favor by saying, “See what your neighbors are selling their homes for,” or “See how much your home will sell for.” The ad still prompts a postcode/address, but this time it’s geared to see more information that they want or need. You can also create a list of homes under a certain price and get the seller to provide their address to get a more relevant list. We have found that these little changes can reduce costs per lead by up to 50% per lead.

2. You are targeting the wrong audience by using the default “boost” option.

After you make a great post, Instagram will suggest that you promote it by targeting similar people to your current sphere. The problem is that when you click that “boost” button, the algorithm starts to promote your post to the people similar to your audience that have engaged with your content. It then promotes your post to people similar to them, which is not the most efficient way to go about the promotion.

Taking a slightly less simple but more effective route might entail finding a way to target qualified and local buyers and sellers within a 25-mile-or-less radius. It is worth keeping in mind that the minimum use of this search feature is a 15-mile radius, but you can get more granular by targeting special interests or groups that your audience follows.

3. You are not focused on the messaging.

Having a listing is a great validation of how experienced you are, but there is no clear messaging with that ad. Ask yourself what the likelihood of a person being interested in this listing is. Is there a call to action? Would your post prompt the audience to do something?

Ads appear briefly in people’s feeds, and the same is true for a listing. It is important to think about the audience and what your message is very clearly before running any type of ad.

Let’s say you sold a listing for $2 million. By promoting a “just-sold” ad, you are sending a message that you may only work in a certain luxury market in a small part of town. A better approach would be to provide some value.

Circling back to utilizing the advertisements in your favor, posting something along the lines of “See how much your neighbors are selling their house for” or “Get a list of homes below $400,000” prompts the audience to provide their contact details (leads) in exchange for the list or prices of homes. This is the value behind the ad.

4. You are not putting a call to action within the ad.

In a lot of ads, agents fail to ask the audience to put in the information before giving the prized ad. For instance, the ad creative says, “Just sold,” and goes on to explain that the home just sold for a certain price. It’s worth asking what the value is in something like this. Why would your audience give you their details (lead information), and what are you providing them in return?

As the market shifts during the remainder of 2022, it is more important than ever to focus on the way we use this technology to make the most of our budget to run effective ads. Most importantly, don’t fall into the trap of “it will pay for itself.” Most of the time, it won’t. Considering how expensive advertising has gotten, it’s especially important to strategically optimize your ads so that you can truly benefit from the technology.
