Facebook Paranoia Finally Sets In.

A lovely questions about everyone's favorite social networking site. Could someone explain further about Facebook's "Active Sessions" settings?

Well, obviously Facebook Help isn't helpful but I'm hoping you guys are.
I was going through my Facebook security/privacy settings and noticed the "Active Settings" section.
I have quite a few active sessions that are located in Atlanta and Nashville - which are both about 3 hours away. Two of them show the device being used as Safari on MacOSX which I don't own or work on.

Another one, which I'm not worried about, located in Atlanta says: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.3.3; en-us; DROID2 Build/4.5.1_57_DR2-31) AppleWebKit/533.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/533.1

(I use a Droid 2)

I am also unable to "end activity" (it doesn't end it - probably a bug or something?).

Anyway, I'm kinda nervous about this.
Could there be an explaination other than the information being incorrect? I could understand the locations being off but location and device type being off kinda makes me wonder.

Do you have an iPad? That would trigger a similar user agent.

I don't own any Mac products and haven't used one....

Well, I decided to change my password which ended all Active SESSIONS (I realize I made a typo using "Settings" in my post) and then logged in on my Droid (using 3G) and right after I logged in, I checked the Active Sessions log - and it had Atlanta using Safari/MacOSX. So I'm guessing it's just reporting incorrectly.
