Maybe it means that half of them will still be running, like
radioactivity half-life. Actually none of them will still be running,
because they will have been long recycled whether they are still
operational or not. Our 200 GByte hard drives today will be laughably
small in 2037. We'll probably be using holographic devices with
petabytes of memory (and "bytes" will be 128 bits long). We'll each have
a crystal about a cubic centimeter in size containing all the books and
pictures that have ever been published, plus a (virtually) unlimited
amount of memory to store our email.
