Those households which have a common account can now enjoy their personal settings, viewing history and programs to be lined up in order to be seen. Profiles are the new thing by Netflix and they will take a few weeks to come to all account holders. Meanwhile, the PS3 is all ready to support Profiles. As for Android and Nintendo Wii, they will get support services later on (probably in mid-August). The company responsible for this service wants it to operate with relative ease. They want the whole process to be as simple as clicking on a button, punching in the letters that spell your name and choosing a symbol. You may if you so wish to do so gain access to Facebook via this service.
The whole set up basically allows you to use Netflix to the limits of its capacity. Each member of your family may now watch what he or she likes. While this may raise fears of censorship, parents need not worry since the Netflix Kids portal has only stuff that is suitable for those under 12 years of age. Profiles may be availed on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, iPad, iPhone, Apple TV and many other smart TVs. This facility will soon come to other devices. Smart recommendations that let viewers in on the nitty-gritty stuff leads to more satisfied customers. That’s the formula Netflix is acting on and it may just work in the real world. Individual preferences are catered to thereby tweaking the viewership experience.
Netflix Chief Product Officer Neil Hunt said, "We continually innovate and are proud to deliver an even better, more personal Netflix experience. Now everyone in your home can have their own Netflix experience, built around the TV shows and movies they enjoy. No longer will your Netflix suggestions be mixed up with those of your kids, a significant other, roommates, or house guests."

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
