      Hi Jeremy,
      Can I know wich device is recognized by user-agent:

      Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_5_6; en-us)
      AppleWebKit/525.27.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.2.1 Safari/525.27.1

      You had to call getId() on returned device.

      Actually, we are working on better Safari browser matcher. Any feedback is
      precious.
