It’s simple enough to mount a TV against a wall. But what do you do when a room has glass walls or floor-to-ceiling windows? Or what if you want to install an outdoor television on the lawn, nowhere near a wall?

How has home technology changed since 2002—and where do we see it going? Here’s what our founder had to say.
