In addition, the Netflix app is updated to include Profiles so different users under the same account can keep their lists separate. To do this you have to go to the Netflix website and set up Profiles for each person. When the Apple TV Netflix app is opened, you'll be asked to choose a profile. To switch profiles at other times, press the Menu button until presented with the Profiles list.
I also just found out you can move or disable apps.
To move an app - select it with the remote, hold down the middle button until the icons jiggle (sound familiar), then move the app with the directional arrows on the circle
To disable an app - open Settings->General->Parental Controls. From there you can enable/disable apps.

I didn't know either of those things, thanks. Where did you find that?
I'll be editing a bit today 'cause too many of those icons represent things that either require a subscription I'm not interested in, or only work if you have something besides Dish or Direct as providers, essentially making them less than worthless to me.

This particular info was in an article on an app I use called ZITE. It's a magazine type app that congregates articles based on your preferences. The Apple TV update article mentoined those things.

Too bad DirecTV users can't get the Disney owned channels (Disney and ESPN) using AppleTV. As a customer I really don't care whose at fault I just want them to work things out so I can use the same features a cable customer can.
