Details about Zune Pass, the monthly subscription service, are now public and official over on Zune.net. I wish I could say there were some cool surprises, but there aren't: $14.99 a month will give you access to "millions" of songs, and as long as you keep paying the monthly fee, you get to keep all the music you downloaded. It's like cable TV, though it seems people have a hard time thinking of music that way. They also offer a three monthly option for, are you ready for this, $44.97. If you're quick with math, you'll notice that's 3 x $14.99. Why offer a three month option at no discount? You got me - it makes no sense. The good news is that they'll offer a 14 day trial, without a credit card, meaning you can load up your Zune with 30 GB of music and listen to it for two full weeks. That's really cool when you think about it - nicely done Zune team!
