Oy vey: SyncML is now OMA DS
Never mind that synchronization has never been more popular, or more marketable to businesses. The fine folks at the Open Mobile Alliance renamed SyncML (Synchronization Markup Language) to this unmemorable alphabet soup: OMA DS (Open Mobile Alliance Data Synchronization). As if we don't have enough standards, we have to deal with old and new names! I will spell out the "DS" or no one will know what I'm talking about!
