CRYSTAL BALLS. John W. Campbell opines, 1945: 'Television may never reach the stage of being in everyone's home, as radio receivers are now ... It can't be unobtrusive; you have to watch it. But you can't watch it if you're doing housework, paying bills, playing bridge, or reading ... My own hunch is that too few people will buy the expensive, four hundred dollar television receivers to support the commercial advertiser's very expensive show.' (_Astounding SF_, June 1945) [MMW (Martin Morse Wooster)]
