Google Nexus 4 discriminates against goats

Google's latest flavour of Android can tell the difference between a savvy tech user and a mountainous herbivore

We were very impressed with the performance of the Jelly Bean 4.2-toting Google Nexus 4 in our review, but one feature that slipped past our eagle eyes was the fact that the Nexus 4 can detect whether or not you are a goat.

"public boolean isUserAGoat ()

Used to determine whether the user making this call is subject to teleportations.

Returns whether the user making this call is a goat"

Android developer Ovidiu Latcu came across the snippet of code above, which appears to determine whether or not the user is human, or a four-legged slope climbing herbivore.

We think it's high time this feature was implemented and we're glad to see that Google is taking user detection and security to the next level.

Your move Apple and Microsoft…
