If you're anything like us, your Netflix queue is probably stocked with nothing but Bergman films and foreign-language documentaries on topics like the Cold War and sand. But in the rare instances when we feel like enjoying a romantic comedy or the lesser-appreciated parts of the Schwarzenegger oeuvre, we'd prefer to do it without anyone finding out — and now we can! The rocket scientists behind the popular DVD-rental service have just unveiled a new site feature that allows you to mark certain queued movies as "private," thus making them invisible to your discerning Netflix Friends. Finally you can enjoy You've Got Mail without the stigma of being a person who enjoys You've Got Mail. Happy weekend!
