PCs aren't back in vogue with regular would-be web surfers at home, the people who have forgotten about the web or the internet (even as everything they do on their phones is of course directly tied to them). But the PC desktop and laptop's place in the world is settling into its optimum use cases and subsequently the PC market is stabilizing.

Put another way, personal computers look like they're going to at least survive this world where everyone imagines that everything is best done by tapping data into a smartphone.

If the "desktop web" can survive through premium users, office workers, and content generators, it is hopeful to me that its lingering presence will be enough to help keep the mediums of HTML and blogs as strong expression platforms. Strong enough at least to convince publishers that they can produce exclusively for it without building crappy-looking mobile-desktop experiences in the same presentation.
