therealdeal.com reports that Linda Samuels, owner of World of Video, in Greenwich Village, that in some ways tech developments have helped her small business. Stocking DVDs instead of VHS takes up less room and has enabled her to rent out a smaller space at a lower cost. Samuels also points out the inability of Netflix and on demand technology to carry movies that true cinephiles want. “There’s a lot that you can’t get,” she said.
