    Why do you think it's outdated? I'd do it through apple update on your computer but I think that's about right isn't it? Isn't 4.1 the latest?

    Granted unless you are setup for emails it's likely a scan but it's timelyish I believe.

    It's not outdated. The latest version of iCloud for Windows is 4.1

    Please read it as "iCloud for Windows," version "4.1".
    Do NOT read it as "iCloud for 'Windows 4.1'".

    You have a parse error in your reading.
    (Perhaps if they called their product "iCloud 4.1 for Windows" you would parse better.)

    Yeah I wondered after I responded if maybe that's how he was looking at it. ;)

    You mean what SHE is looking at. The photo of the email that I sent to this forum reads iCloud for Windows 4.1.

    I will just have to ignore that email. Most likely a scam.

    Sorry!!! She!! And really you are reading it wrong. Double check James post. It's not for windows 4.1. It's iCloud for windows and it's version 4.1 of that. They call the actual program iCloud for windows.

    But truth is it doesn't matter what the email says. If you have iCloud for windows on your computer or iTunes or QuickTime then you also have apple update too. Just run apple Update and if there's an update for your version of iCloud for windows it'll update it.

    I'm sorry Ma'am, but you seem to be having trouble understanding. It has been explained very clearly - if you choose to ignore the explanation that is your prerogative.

    Just a little clean up on the aisle... independent of the reading comprehension discussion...

    Windows 98 was in fact Windows v4.1... while Microsoft changed the naming convention for marketing they still carried internal version numbers.

    What's funny is... Windows 7 is actually NT v6.1 or something like that... Windows 8 was also a v6.x internal version... Microsoft basically went wonky with their version numbering schemes for a while...

    I believe Windows 10 is actually Windows v10, though... so all is well again with the world.

    Now back to the other stuff...

    Per Webster: he - 1. The male person or animal being discussed or last mentioned; that male. 2. Anyone "(without reference to sex)"; that person: (he who hesitates is lost). Neither your user name or profile indicate your gender. That said, either make some changes identifying your gender or accept Webster's definition and use of the pronoun "he".

    Invented by a man no doubt. I guess men are the master sex

    Last night my wife and I dined with friends at their home. After dinner I showed them your user name and asked them what gender they thought you were. Everyone (my wife, my friend, his wife, and their two teenage daughters) said male. Then I showed them your posts with your attitude towards the use of the pronoun "he". The women couldn't understand why you're in a tissy and agreed that if you want to be referred to as "she" you should make it easily known what your gender is. Forum rules prevent me from repeating what the husband said. :sure:

    There are too many members on the site to remember which ones are feMALE or woMEN without some hint.
    If being called by the wrong gender is upsetting there are I recommend a change in user title (not user name) or the use of a profile picture or signature. It does not have to be a personal photo ... just enough to remind people that ye is a she.

    In the interest of cooperation I just change my gender from not telling to male.
