Trying to improve my understanding of services....

Firstly, can anyone explain to me in simple terms what is the difference between a Dynamic Map Service and a Feature Service, and how to decide which one to use?!

Secondly, is a dynamic map service "live" - i.e. if the underlying feature class is updated is it reflected in the service without further processing?

Finally, when I am publishing hosted services via 10 .1 I have these options:
a) Tiled Mapping
b) Feature Access
Does these correspond exactly as follows:
Tiled Mapping = cached map service
Feature Access = feature service

Thanks!
