    Hey - so, Microsoft have said that the Zune Marketplace is 'retiring' this month and you'll no longer be able to purchase anything through it (although you can still use Zune on your PC to listen to music).

    Is that just the PC version of Zune - or does that mean that from this month I'll no longer be able to buy anything on my Lumia 800 as well?

    As far as I can tell, no purchases on the Zune marketplace period. I have an XBOX Music pass, and use Zune, so I guess I need to inquire to ensure all is good with downloading music through the pass on the Zune player. But the use of Microoft points to buy or rent anything is being cut off.

    If Zune is where we get any software updates and its being retired is it safe to say that 7.8 was absolutely the last software update we'll see?? Not that I really held out much hope for continued WP7 updates as everything is now firmly focussed on the WP8 experience, but still.......would be nice to know we early adopters haven't been left out in the cold entirely.
