In my experience, jailbreaking an ios device is a much, much lighter modification than rooting an Android device. It's one click on the computer (plus on tap on the device) to jailbreak, while rooting required an evening of research, the ADK, uploading a recovery bootloader, and all sorts of mucking about.

To me, it makes more sense to think of things like a 'three hour job' in terms of an average practitioner. Otherwise, who's to say that there's not another mechanic that can do 4 ball-joints in 45 minutes? Using your logic, the GP would be stretching out an N-minute job (where N is the least number of minutes any mechanic could do the work) into a little over an hour.

If you look at individual Tea Party protesters, their messages are just as incoherent and jumbled as OWSers. The TP didin't organize *themselves* into a mob with a message, rather, the same interests that always push for less government provided the organization, and the TPers just showed up.
