Filming begins on Steve Jobs movie starring Fassbender

Actor Michael Fassbender in New York City, on August 7, 2014Filming got under way in San Francisco on a new biopic about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, with Hollywood's Michael Fassbender playing the role of the mercurial computer pioneer. Sources told AFP on Thursday that the German-Irish Fassbender, 37, took on the title role in the movie "Steve Jobs" after it was turned down by Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale. Bale, Oscar-winning British star of "The Dark Knight" pulled out of the project in November, news reports said, after deciding he wasn't right for the part. The screenplay for "Steve Jobs" is being written by Aaron Sorkin, who won an Academy Award for his script for "The Social Network," about Facebook and its co-founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Power BI Preview and SQL Server Analysis Services

Yesterday we announced exciting news for Power BI – a cloud-based business analytics service (software-as-a-service) for non-technical business users.  The preview introduces a number of new Power BI capabilities including dashboards, new visualizations, support for popular software-as-a-service applications, a native iPad app and live “hybrid” connectivity to on-premises SQL Server Analysis Services tabular models. With just a browser – any browser – or a Power BI mobile app, customers can keep a pulse on their business via live operational dashboards. They can explore their business data, through interactive visual reports, and enrich it with additional data sources.

How does it work with SQL Server?
To interact with SQL Server data in Power BI, connect to SSAS server via the ‘Get Data’ menu. From there, you can connect to a model and run queries for visualizations based on that model. Before your users can connect to an SSAS model, an administrator must configure a Power BI Analysis Services connector.
