Instagram Direct Messages may still be coming to the desktop after all

Instagram is one of the most popular social networks on the planet but, for all its fame, it remains oddly tied to phones. Never mind the fact that its web-based desktop experience is a few steps from being deplorable, the mobile app seems frozen in a world where people use smartphones in just one and only one way. The Facebook-owned network is very slowly changing, like the standalone Windows desktop app that finally lets you fully upload photos barely two years ago.

The next generation of products from HP aimed at gamers uses both HP's brand power and their ability to release relatively large arrays of products all in a short period of time. While smaller gaming companies release a single sort of device, HP's able to release three, and where one company can manage to hold down a single product line, HP is large enough to go in several directions at once.
