Wireless is a shared medium, there's some 'beam forming' technologies out there but in general your wireless data is just spreading out like a sphere from the radio in your device.

Eh, not really like a sphere. Most monopole omni antennas look more like a donut in their radiation pattern. Directional ones are warped even more toward the front and back lobes. There will always be minimums parallel to how the antennas is pointed.
