We had this issue when we started rolling our the Surface Pro 2's!!!

Ensure the local Windows firewall service on the device is running and try the apps again.

I believe for the Windows Store to work the Windows Firewall Service has to be running.

Also ensure your account has an Microsoft Account associated with it,
