Apple under fire over 'sexist' credit card limit

Jennifer Bailey vice president of Apple Pay speaks about the Apple Card

The much anticipated titanium credit card, part of a broader effort by Apple to derive greater revenue from services after years of heavy reliance on iPhone sales, was launched in August, in partnership with Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

"These sorts of unfairnesses bother me and go against the principle of truth".

"The same thing happened to us", Wozniak tweeted. "Our government isn't strong enough on the issues of regulation". He said that didn't make up for the flawed algorithm used by Apple Card.

Lenders have promoted the models because they're supposed to level the playing field among different borrowers by removing human error and focusing only on data. Goldman Sachs also noted that it is "looking to enable" the ability for users to share Apple Cards with other members of their families, although the company did not specify when that might occur.

Responding to Bloomberg, Goldman Sachs said its algorithm for making credit decisions is not based on gender.

On Friday, a day after David Hansson started railing on the Apple Card's treatment of female credit applicants, he said his wife got a "VIP bump" to match his credit limit.

In several tweets that were often liked thousands of times and frequently retweeted, Hansson didn't disclose his or his wife's income, but wrote that they have been married a long time, file joint tax returns and live in a community- property state.

The trailer gives a glimpse into every one of eight episodes, while Dolly can be heard speaking about her work in voiceover. Down from Dover - Holly Taylor, Shane McGhie, Robert Taylor, Bellamy Young and Camryn Manheim.

According to a report by the BBC, the DFS said that it "will be conducting an investigation to determine whether NY law was violated and ensure all consumers are treated equally regardless of sex".

"Any algorithm that intentionally or not results in discriminatory treatment of women or any other protected class violates NY law".

United States healthcare giant UnitedHealth Group is being investigated over claims an algorithm favoured white patients over black patients.

But Mr Hansson, creator of the programming tool Ruby on Rails, said it highlights how algorithms, not just people, can discriminate. But it failed to explain why a woman, with a higher credit score, didn't receive the same, or a higher spending limit. Meanwhile, technology companies are moving in on the financial services industry's turf, with businesses such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google offering loans and payment options. "It's not a gender-discrimination intent but it is a gender-discrimination outcome".

Some lawmakers are demanding a federal response. Sen.

This is the second such action from the regulator in recent weeks.

Goldman's growing ambitions for Main Street are bringing increased scrutiny and a new set of challenges it hasn't faced previously. Hansson still believes it's an algorithm, not "some nefarious person", engaging in gender bias. But that doesn't matter.
