John C's answer is not correct, though I had to sign up to find out the differences. The documentation about pricing is really a nightmare, and the calculator is also not of much help.

Zune Pass has only very recently become available in countries outside of the US. The rollout has coincided with the launch of Windows Phone 7 around the world, as Windows Phone 7 has a lot of integrated features that link up with Zune. The problems with launching "all-you-can-eat" music services like this around the world come down to the fact that laws on ...

From a Microsoft representative: "With the current design of Hotmail, the option you're referring to is not yet available. I will forward the suggestion over to our product team as consideration for a future release." Unfortunately, that was over a year ago. It doesn't look like the feature is coming anytime soon.

It looks like you've either: (1) Previously signed up for a Microsoft account with that external email address. (2) Added that external email address as an alias to an existing Microsoft account. If it's (1), then you'll have to sign in to that account and close it and wait 1 year before you can create that same email address under a custom domain. If it's ...

The country/area where your friend resides/trying to play might not allow streaming. Silverlight might not be installed (or a linux OS that does not support Netflix). Should be one of those, otherwise have him contact ...

Long paths and long filenames are not really the same thing, although the issues faced with the old MS-DOS 8.3 filenames are now history. You can try Windows Live Mesh, which is available for Windows Vista onwards and MacOSX.

I found my answer, maybe it will help someone with the same problem: I changed my computer's Location in Windows from US to UK. Then I restarted my machine and voila! I now have a Zune Pass (and can access the above link). Here's where I changed it (in the Control Panel)... Surprising, but there you go. That's all it was. Very bizarre.

I doubt such a service exists. For business applications hosting them offsite on VMs is a cinch. There are no graphics and rarely videos. But for games, the bandwidth would be too intensive.

Perhaps HTML5s video tag will open up the ability to do this sort of thing with a ...
