Lack of cloud logins preventing access to local devices..

This is just typical where people buy, sign up for and consume all sorts of services with either no understanding of how they operate or being totally unaware that the "web login" is actually a cloud service to access something locally.

It is a huge cultural issue that is going to keep getting worse. Look at all the "Smart Connected" crap there is out there now that is associated with appliances.
