Deep Fried Twinkies

Deep-Fried Twinkies are a crowd favorite at the State Fair and they are a favorite at our house as well. Crispy fried on the outside and gooey on the inside. Sweet! You’ll be surprised to see how easy they are to make at home.

The Difference Between DVD rom and DVD RAM

DVD stands for Digital Versatile Disc. It’s a type of data storage technology. There are two categories of recording formats in DVDs.




The first category is called Digital Versatile Disc Read Only Memory (DVD ROM). In this type of DVD, you can retrieve the content multiple times on any device that reads DVD ROMs. For example, when you purchase a movie, it is burned using the DVD ROM format. You can watch the movie, but you cannot record over it.


What if you wanted to record your favorite TV program, similar to how VHS cassettes were used in the 1980s? Or, what if you wanted to take a backup of your computer data?

The second category of DVDs allows you to record and re-record. DVD-RAM belongs to this family. Before I go any further, here’s a word of caution. This category is a little complex and, therefore, a little tricky. So, brace yourself!

DVD formats that allow you to record and re-record are DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, and DVD-RW. Since your question is targeted towards DVD-RAM, I’ll describe it first and then describe the others.



DVD-RAM: Allows you to record, erase, and re-record numerous times. However, you need to have a device that supports the DVD-RAM format.

DVD+RW and DVD-RW: Allows you to record, erase, and re-record repeatedly. Most commercial DVD players can read data recorded in this format.

DVD+R and DVD-R: Allows you to record only once. After which, the data is permanent on the disc and you cannot record over it. Most commercial DVD players can read data recorded in this format.

You’ll notice that the DVD-RAM, DVD+RW, and DVD-RW all do the same thing. So, why are there so many standards? Well, the answer lies in the supporting organizations. DVD-RAM, DVD-R, and DVD-RW are supported by companies, such as Apple Computers, Toshiba, and Samsung. While the DVD+RW and DVD+R formats are supported by organizations, such as Philips, Sony, and Dell.

Tip: When you purchase a DVD player, check the DVD recording formats it supports; the more the better.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Review: Hands-on

Thanks to a plus model, the Galaxy Note 10 might be the big Samsung phone you've been waiting a long time for. Find out why in our hands-on review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10?
With so many phones being almost identical to the last model, we're impressed with what Samsung has done with the Galaxy Note 10.
The 10+ model still provides the classic Note experience, but this regular one will finally appeal to those that want the S Pen on a much more manageable phone. This is largely due to tiny bezels and the punch-hole camera.
Based on some hands-on time, we love it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review

For the first time ever, there's a plus model of Samsung's S Pen smartphone. Here's why you'll want the Galaxy Note 10+ if you like having extras.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
As it typical for the Note, this 10th edition is a truly amazing smartphone... but only for those that can afford it and really want this size of device.
There's no doubt Samsung has made the Note 10+ the best edition yet with better cameras, an amazing screen and lots more impressive tech. However, many of the new features are gimmicky and we imagine some users will be distraught at the removal of the headphone jack.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus Review

Samsung had shaken thing up and you can now choose between the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, but which is the best phone for you? We compare them to help you decide.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Or Samsung Galaxy Note 10+?
While the Galaxy Note 10 models share many specs and design features it's pretty clear who each one will appeal to.
If you've been longing for a Note in a more manageable size, then the regular Note 10 is exactly what you've been waiting for. However, if you want the biggest screen possible along with some extra specs like more memory, storage, microSD card slot, extra sensors and a bigger battery then the Note 10+ is your best mate.
