We've connected all the computers worldwide, enabled real-time communication between anyone on the globe, developed amazing applications that run online, millions using them simultaneously. Yet, we still struggle to send a file between devices that are right next to each other.

If everyone had a team of engineers to setup their local network and devices it would be equally easy.

It's like we mastered the ability to mass produce food for billions of people, but if you try to do everything from scratch on your own it's a PITA.
