I cannot think of one situation where I would need my oven to be remotely operated or connected to internet.
You're just not trying hard enough. Imagine the following:

It's the night before [insert big holiday] and you're hosting your extended family - think siblings, parents, squirrelly cousins, etc... even your greasy uncle Frank. Suddenly your "significant other" calls with an emergency, you need to drive 4 hours (each way) to pick up their cat (Muffins). You grab your keys and fire up the land yacht [1994 Plymouth Voyager] but not before popping a freshly thawed 27 pound [12.247 kg] turkey into your deluxe WiFi oven. At the same time you reach Muffins [turkey practically covered in microbes and other beasties by now], the oven tries to turn on to 375F [190.556C]. You get a panicked notification from your oven app that a required update is needed. You press YES on the 14 "Are you sure?" requests and nearly miss a curve. You jerk the wheel to save the mini-van and Muffin flies across the 3rd row seat and nearly out the back window [that conveniently folds out for your ventilation pleasure]. You arrive home just in time to carve the turkey before the family arrives. Turns out a 27 pound turkey is not enough to feed everyone so you politely eat vegetables instead. 6 hours later the phone calls and texts start pouring in as your family starts heading to their local emergency rooms.

See??? The Wifi oven was your best friend today. It saved [insert big holiday], Muffins and you while convincing your family never to let you host again.
