My gender presentation affects my ability to be gainfully employed and be physically secure. But my femininity comes at a cost I can’t always afford

I’ve worn these boots down to the heel base – the wooden part to which the soles are nailed. I should take them in to be re-soled, because every step I take on the mangled pavement whittles away another percentage point of the shoe repair guy’s prognosis of its potential to be made anew. But I don’t run as well in the sea green patent leather Mary Jane pumps that I’d have to wear while these were in the shop.

When I was young, newly out – “fresh out of the oven” as we older trans ladies often say, giggling behind glasses of wine in kitchens while hordes of brunching baby queers roam the sunlit streets – I mistook the rush of purchasing a new pair of girly-girl heels for the thrill of freedom fought and won.

Mixed decision for Samsung appeal in Apple patent case 18.5.2015 DNA: Top News
A US appeals court on Monday upheld most elements of the blockbuster patent case in which Samsung was found to have violated Apple iPhone patents, but invalidated some of the damages. The appellate panel in Washington gave Samsung -- ordered by a jury to pay US $930 million for patent infringement -- a partial victory by ruling that Apple cannot collect damages for Samsung's copying of the look and feel of the iconic smartphone. The latest decision sends the case back to a California federal court to recalculate damages. The ruling could affect as much as US $382 million awarded to Apple on grounds the South Korean electronics giant hurt Apple's image by copying certain design features of the iPhone. The invalidated awards affect Apple's contention that Samsung violated the "unregistered trade dress" or design components of the iPhone such as "a rectangular product with four evenly rounded corners." The court said Apple should not be awarded damages for these items because these were not purely design ...

Amazon.in to launch ZTE Nubia range of phones, most likely the top-of-the-line Z9 18.5.2015 DNA: Opinion
Chalk another one up for Chinese handset manufacturers making waves in the country; ZTE--a popular smartphone and wireless brand in the US and China--is all set to make their foray into India, purportedly on 19 May. A page on Amazon.in indicates only a glimpse of the lower half of the phone, which in all likelihood appears to be their top-of-the-line Z9. Packing a speedy Snapdragon 810 processor with Adreno 430 graphics, this phone is available in China in two flavors--the 4GB RAM/64GB Exclusive and Elite version, and the 3GB RAM/32GB Classic edition. These are 5.2 inch phones with Full HD resolution, pegging the display at a massively sharp 424 pixels per inch. There is also dual SIM dual standby LTE support. No word on pricing, but speculations expect it to sit within the Rs 36,000 to Rs 46,000 band. Intriguingly, the Amazon page claims “The new Nubia smartphone with an SLR camera”, which is entirely too much of a stretch. Though the phone does have decent photography specifications, with a 16MP main ...
