Netflix Profiles are here, finally a way to have your viewing habits separated from other family members. Up to 5 profiles can be created, but these don't necessarily need to be family members either. For example you could create one for Sci-Fi, or Comedy etc and then instant queue the appropriate movies under those categories. 

Seems to be only working on the PS3 and the website at the moment, with more devices getting it soon apparently. But if you set up the profiles on the PS3 and then going into the website and clicking by your name it will bring up the list of profile names you created.

One option I would like to see is to password protect the profiles.  Especially if you were to watch content not suitable for children.

Found it easier myself (because of the no roku support) to leave all the kids stuff as the primary, and make myself a new profile for use on the Apple TV which supports it. 

IOS doesn't yet, but I expect it will soon.  Roku apparently wont be supported till next year, almost regretting buying one now, experience much better on Apple TV.

I did mine the item way around since a roku can't choose a profile, left the default to the kid, and a made a new one for me. The Apple TV can choose a profile.

Waiting or iPhone to get profiles as well.

Same for me. I also created on for my wife so she will get recommended the crap she likes (romcoms etc) and they won't appear in my queue.
